South Harrison Com Schools Reviews

from: glenda j hartman | submitted: Oct 16, 2012
I am extremely angry and upset over the drug screening process. Nicotine is not on many, many of the other districts and my grandson is going to miss everything he loves because he tested positive for tobacco. This is not illegal in our county,state,or country. Although I do uunderstand the hazzards of smoking, I do not understand why it is on a drug screen up there with meth(illegal)coc(illegal),pot (illegal)ETC. if all minors were tested today, I'd wager to say 1/2 the students would be positive. stomping it out. I am sure this is what your district wishes to accomplish, but the punishment does not fit the crime in our country at this time. when a senior who will soon be 18 looses his whole year over a chew, something is rotten in denmark. I have consulted with an attorney and will pursue this if the "child" wishes to do so. this is cureently very unfair. there should be a policy for tobacco which is far more specific and does not add it into a drug screen with these other horrible drugs. no child should be stripped of their highschool activity when tobacco is not illegal yet. There should be positive help for these kids. I know my grandson was addicted before he was ten due to my smoking and his whole family. I also know he was doing the chews to try to quit all together because he loved his school and football. now, however, what reason does he have to stop or to try to make the grade to graduate. you've stripped him of that. thank you glenda Hartman
