Voluntary Drug Testing
Drugs and alcohol among adolescents are a major concern for both educators and parents. The use of illegal substances can lead to harmful and even disastrous results for everyone involved. It is, therefore, important to empower students and parents to avoid the pitfalls associated with drug and alcohol use. To achieve this goal, LAHS has implemented a Voluntary Drug Testing Program. The program is free of charge, confidential and non-punitive. Students who participate may, on a random basis, be selected to undergo a voluntary drug test. The tests will be administered on the LAHS campus during the school day in a private and secure location. All tests will be conducted by trained professionals. Information regarding the test results is confidential and will only be released to parents/guardians. No results, positive or negative, will be given to LA, HS. If a test is positive, the testing company will provide referrals to appropriate counseling and rehabilitative services. The goal of the LAHS Voluntary Drug Testing Program is to enlist the assistance and support of parents to help our adolescents combat and win the fight against drug and alcohol use.
