A safety message regarding an upcoming event at Shoreline
The Mountain View police have reached out to all of the local high schools to alert us to the upcoming concert "Beyond Wonderland” at Shoreline on September 20-21. This two-day event, like past rave events, is fraught with illegal drugs and dangerous behavior.
While the event is restricted to 18 and older concert-goers, it is very clear that high school students find a way to enter the venue. If your son or daughter is planning to attend the concert or has asked to attend, please understand the dangers inherent in the event. Past experience leads us to be concerned for students who attend these rave events, where even the most innocent person will be exposed to dangerous behaviors and drugs.
It is always our goal to partner with you to provide a safe and healthy environment where our children will thrive. Rave concerts present many dangers to a student's well-being. If your child is intending to attend this event, please make yourself aware of the dangers that will be present at the event.
