Earlier today, the District, in cooperation with the Locust Township Police Department and the Pennsylvania State Police, conducted a drug search of the Middle School and High School using specially-trained dogs who are able to sniff out drugs. The dogs used are highly specialized and certified for this purpose. Today's search was undertaken as a part of a program to prevent illicit drugs in our schools and to help ensure that students attending Southern Columbia Area schools have a safe, drug free, and healthy environment in which to learn.
 
The School District and local police departments have zero tolerance for those who try to make our schools less than healthy places to grow and learn.  It is the intention of the Southern Columbia Area School District to periodically use a police canine dog in conjunction with the local police department to check for drugs in our schools.
