Guam - George Washington High School isn't only cracking down on students consuming or bringing alcohol to the campus - officials are also taking action against students participating in gambling.  Assistant Principal for Discipline Gaylene Cruz says gambling on campus has caused near fights and threats among students.

In at least one instance, a student was being bullied because he owed another student money.  Cruz says they're not tolerating such acts and anyone caught gambling will either be suspended, removed, expelled, sent to the J.P. Torres Alternative School or even reported to the Guam Police Department.

"As of last month, we sent out a bulletin and we told those students and teachers that cards are not allowed on campus...cards, dice, quarter games and all that on campus and anyone found bringing these items will have adverse action taken against them," she explained.
