Students are prohibited from selling, possessing, giving, attempting to sell, or receiving any illegal substance, look-alike drug, or drug paraphernalia.  Students violating this will be subject to immediate suspension from school and school activities after due process.  It may also result in a referral for expulsion.  This will also result in referral to a law enforcement officer. 

Any substance containing alcohol or that poses a health risk to students is prohibited from school grounds, at school events, or in school vehicles. Any prescription drug, medicine, or other chemical including but not limited to pain relievers, diet pills, no-doze pills, depressants, and sleeping pills not taken in accordance with authorized use are not to be in school.  Authorized use of prescription drugs will consist of the school nurse (or a designee) administering the medicine or drug to the student in accord with a parent’s/ guardian’s written request and physician’s authorization.  Students exhibiting behaviors that may indicate drug or alcohol possession or use, will be reported to the principal and excluded from class, instructional areas, or programs in progress.  The student’s parent/guardian will be notified immediately.  Should the student need medical attention, MEDCU will be notified.  If the student appears to be dangerous to others, police department assistance may be requested.  Should the student not need medical attention and not present an imminent danger to him/herself or others, the student will be released from school in the custody of his/her/their parent/guardian.
