As part of the District’s continuing efforts to ensure that students attending Southern Columbia Area schools have a safe, drug free, and healthy environment in which to learn, the District, in cooperation with the Locust Township Police Department and the Pennsylvania State Police, conducted a drug search of our Middle School and High School using specially-trained dogs who are able to sniff out drugs. It is the intention of School District officials to periodically use a police canine dog in conjunction with the local police departments to check for drugs in our schools.
 
The position of the School District and the local police departments is to have zero tolerance for those who would try to make the schools less than healthy places to grow and learn.  It is with this goal in mind that we undertake these steps as a part of a program to prevent illicit drugs in our schools. Many thanks are extended to the Locust Township Police Department and the Pennsylvania State Police for the support and service they provide our schools.
