Naperville police said Tuesday they will not pursue charges against parents of roughly 20 Naperville North High School seniors who consumed alcohol the morning of the first day of classes on Aug. 17.

District administrators say the students admitted to attending several drinking parties between midnight and 5 a.m., just hours before the first bell rang. Police Chief David Dial said parents would be held accountable if police could confirm they knew what their children were doing. That does not seem to be the case.

"At this time, no charges are pending against the parents of any students identified as being intoxicated on the first day of school," Sgt. Gregg Bell said Tuesday. "Our Youth Unit has been investigating the cases and does not have enough credible information to support charges against any of those parents."
