Live a Drug Free Life!!

Drugs on campus are forbidden, unless they are emergency drugs and you have a doctor's order for you to carry it. Drugs are to be kept locked up in the clinic.

Asthmatics must have an ASTHMA ACTION PLAN completed by their physician. Students are not allowed to carry an inhaler on campus without this ACTION PLAN.

Donations of tissues and disinfectant spray and wipes are greatly appreciated. Thank you to the few wonderful parents who have already sent some in.

Keys to Drug Prevention at this age (9-12th grade):

Drug prevention messages must have a foundation of accurate, factual information from which youth can draw conclusions about the dangers and long-term effects of drug-use. Still, there are certain things parents and educators should keep in mind when communicating with high school students about substance abuse.

  • They need to continue learning and practicing how to resist peer pressure and to understand the valid reasons for saying "no" to risky behaviors.
  • They need to be allowed to make independent decisions and to assume responsibility for choices that affect them and others.
  • They need to see that, as citizens, they are responsible for making their communities better, safer places to live.
  • They like to explore different sides of issues, examine various interpretations and justify their actions as correct moral choices.

Parents, be a good role model for your child. Children tend to copy what their parents do. Talk to your child about the dangers of drugs. They need to hear from YOU that drugs are bad.

Marijuana is the most widely used illicit drug in the United States and tends to be the first illegal drug teens use.
