Outback Responds to Teen Drinking Incident

New Canaan Patch.com (New Canaan, CT) March 15, 2011

Based upon our investigation, the Board of Directors found that the Outback staff properly followed all existing procedures and protocols given the circumstances. The event was staffed consistent with similar dances and in light of the actual number of teens in attendance. The Outback offers a higher staff to student ratio at Teen Dances than most other area teen centers and the staff present at the recent dance undertook their responsibilities quickly and professionally.
