Voluntary Drug Testing
CV has initiated a voluntary drug-testing program for all interested secondary students. Any middle or high school student may participate in this program and has the opportunity to sign up at any time during the school year. The consent of a parent/guardian is also required. Once enrolled, a student remains part of the voluntary drug-testing program until graduation, unless both the parent and student revoke participation through a dated, written statement signed by both. Drug testing will occur on a bi-monthly basis. Students to be screened will be chosen through a random, computer-generated program. Please note that any student who is subject to suspension or expulsion from school as a result of possession, use, or being under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol in violation of the Conestoga Valley School District’s Drug and Alcohol Policy will be required, where appropriate, to participate in the random drug-testing program as part of the disposition of discipline.
Additional information can be found on our school website at health services. If you have questions, please contact your school nurse. Our intention at Conestoga Valley is to send a clear message that we do not support drug abuse of any kind.
