ECHS drug policy keeps campus safe

Eastside Catholic High School administrators view drug abuse prevention as of the utmost importance, evident from the school’s policies regarding drug use and abuse.

These policies include drug-detection tests, reliance on law enforcement and the use of drug dogs.

The school follows up on this policy with random sweeps of the campus with drug dogs and an annual drug abuse assembly. By being thorough in its attack on drug usage, the school fosters an environment where drug use is forbidden in order to create a safer school environment.

The school also has instituted a punishment policy that mirrors the severity of any drug abuse at Eastside Catholic. Any student caught and convicted must complete a mandatory 28-day course at an inpatient rehabilitation facility should the student decide to remain at Eastside Catholic.

The students and faculty both understand that while these policies are severe, they allow Eastside Catholic to be a safer community for all.
