On February 27, 2001, The Arizona Republic reported that "scheduling the senior prom on the same night as the Sabbath has upset some students at Horizon High School and may force them to skip the event." The planned date for the prom falls on the Sabbath for the Jewish and Seventh-day Adventist students. One Jewish student is "considering legal action."
