Sante Fe School Takes Strong Stance Against Drugs

Drug News

A school in Santa Fe is taking a strong stance in its fight against drugs.

Starting next fall, St. Michael’s Catholic School plans to begin randomly drug testing its students, and that has a lot of parents talking.

“It doesn’t matter what school, what city, what town, you’re going to find drugs. No family’s going be exempt from this program,” Principal Sam Govea said.

The school will randomly assign students to groups, and when their group is called, it’s test time. Students will give a hair sample. If they fail once, they will get a warning.

“If it does come back positive, the student will have 100 days to clean up and we will support them with that,” Govea said
