It's prom time. Time to rent that tux, select a gown, pick out flowers and . . . take a bus? Yes, but it's a luxury bus. So say administrators from William S. Hart High School in Newhall. Saturday marks the first time that Hart High School students will be required to take a chartered coach to and from the prom--or else they cannot attend. "If students don't arrive on the bus, they won't be admitted to the prom," Hart Principal Laurence Strauss said.

After a long battle between school district and FEMA officials, tentative approval has finally been given for the building of a new gym to replace the one destroyed in the Northridge earthquake at William S. Hart High School. Hart officials had maintained that because the school population has more than doubled since the old gym was built, a much larger facility was needed to replace it.

A proposal to open the first Hebrew-language charter school in the state was handed a major setback when school trustees in the Santa Clarita Valley deadlocked over the project's approval -- blocking its progress. Several trustees for the William S. Hart Union High School District said they worried that the school would be a religious academy and might lack ethnic diversity. Supporters of the proposed Albert Einstein Academy for Letters, Arts and Sciences said they would appeal to the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors.

They grew up together, these children of middle-class suburbia. Many are the sons and daughters of the baby boomers, born in the mid-1970s--back when America was scraping the mud of Vietnam from her boots and the egg of Watergate from her face. Many of these 465 seniors graduating from William S.

It has been a scary, and sometimes violent, few days at Newhall's Hart High School, culminating Tuesday when about half the student body stayed home because of a threatening post on a popular online community. First there were the fights along racial lines that broke out late last week. Then there was the message posted Monday on the MySpace website, proclaiming Tuesday as a "bring your weapons to school day" at Hart and other high schools in the district.

From birth until death, everyone is taught to never quit. It's a four-letter word not to be uttered. That might make the decision of a teenager to leave a sports team a family crisis. It happened to the Kase family three years ago. Cody Kase quit the football team at Newhall Hart High midway through his freshman season. It was a stunning decision, considering Kase's oldest brother, George, had been a starting defensive tackle at UCLA. Except Cody was having a miserable experience.

Forget about arm strength, intelligence and mobility. Anyone who hopes to continue the succession of renowned quarterbacks at Newhall Hart High must pass a toughness test. Kyle Matter's came when he was sacked 11 times against Westlake Village Westlake. He never complained. Matt Moore's was against Wilmington Banning, when he was battered four times on late hits. He kept limping back to the huddle. Over the years, just about every Hart quarterback has faced--and conquered--such challenges.

Tens of thousands of dollars weren't up for grabs. Nor was the competition shown live on network television. Yet, Brian Edick of Hart High credits his participation in two skins games golf tournaments in April for his strong finish to the high school season in May and June.
