School: Le'Veon Bell Not Allowed To Attend Prom With Steelers Fan

"I'm one of the biggest Le'Veon Bell fans said Ava Tarantino, I write on all of my papers Le'Veon Bell, it's everywhere".

Schuster clarified her statement on Thursday.

Nevertheless, the school district is, as of now, limiting his participation in the prom to "public events", such as the grand march beforehand. The tweet has since generated more than 2,000 retweets.

"We have to be equitable in the way we treat our students", she said. The district said technically that would be a violation of school policies. The rule has been in place for decades with no exceptions. Guests who were over 20 were denied.

The prom is not until May, so there is time to review the guest application.

Bell served a two-game suspension from the National Football League to start the 2015 season for the infraction and has since completed his probation program. The story just proves the power of social media is insane.

District 12 Alderman Aaron Perry posted on his professional Facebook page in response to Waukesha Now's story.

He also served a suspension in 2016 for violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy by missing follow-up drug tests. In his opinion, it would bring positive attention to Waukesha but a denial would do the opposite.

"I'm hoping we can come to something that would be beneficial for everybody".

High school administrators are waiting for a formal attendance request from Bell, which they would have to approve, since he is 25, over an age limit for prom attendees.

But, on the first day of the new league year, the Steelers opted to bring Jones back, giving him a two-year, $4.4 million contract with $600,000 in guaranteed money.

Bell responded to Tarintino's tweet that same day and said: "welllll, a deal is a deal....see youu at your prom".

Well, that goal was quickly met and surpassed.

The Pittsburgh Steelers, Le'Veon Bell, and Tarintino couldn't be reached for comment.
