Tamaqua School District sets drug testing dates

Published July 08. 2011 05:03PM

In 2010 the Tamaqua Area School District adopted a dug/alcohol testing policy for students in co-curricular activities or wish to have driving and parking privileges.

As per the policy any student in grades 7-12 who intends to participate in any athletic activity, non-athletic club, or nationally chartered organization and any student who applies to park on school property will be subject to an initial random drug and alcohol test.

Additionally, any non-participant, whose parent requests voluntary testing, will be eligible to participate in the random testing program. All participating students must attend a drug testing date for the initial registration to become part of the random testing pool.

Students must provide a signed parent consent form before participating.

Testing will take place in the Athletic Center locker rooms of the middle school between 8-11 a.m., on the following dates: Monday, Aug. 1, boys - grades 7, 8, 9; Tuesday, Aug. 2, boys - grades 10, 11, 12; Wednesday, Aug. 3, girls - grades 7, 8, 9; Thursday, Aug. 4, girls - grades 10, 11, 12; Tuesday, Aug. 9, make up dates for all students.

Any student who cannot attend any of the dates provided should contact Mike Hromyak, athletic director at 668-1901 or for other arrangements.

Becoming part of the random selection process is necessary before participating in any activities. More information is provided on the school district website under athletics.
