I was informed by a highschool student that several students at Highland Highschool drink while at school on a daily basis. How does this go on w/o teachers/counselors etc., knowing about this? Also heard that several kids are smoking pot and doing heroin. The police department needs to be checking vehicles more often and holding heroin seminars at the school. It's happening in Highland and Police and Teachers and Parents need to do something NOW.

This is nothing new. There were kids in my day that put vodka in their lemonade that they brought into school in water bottles. They went through the entire day buzzed. The ag kids also drank with he ag teachers.

Why not test the athletes for drugs? The kids should have to have mandatory drug test and if they test positive they don't play any sports!PERIOD! Kick them off the team and don't give them 3 strikes and your out! 1st time they test positive they are kicked off the team. Maybe then these kids would stay clean. Same goes with alcohol. If they get caught drinking then they are off the team and not given a slap on the hand or sit out a couple games! I don't care if they are the star athlete. If they are doing drugs and drinking they shouldn't be allowed to play sports affliated with the highschool.
yeah boy

This is not a new problem, and kids will continue to play sports, they may go through the motions of siging plegdges etc to be drug and alcohol, but when I was in HS I recall a group of varsity football players in a late night resturant WITH THE COACH and ALL of them were drunk...so how can you not lay down the law and tell them not to drink when the coach is doing it with them. Dont ask names, I will not publicly out someone who no longer teaches or coaches...but my point its a problem all across america, not just here in Highland...

Kids are, albeit immature sometimes, just kids. Can you tell me you didnt do stupid shit when you were young? Life experiences are a real motivator in becoming an adult. If their grades start slipping, start asking questions. Drug testing kids?!? I know drugs are running rampant in this town, but testing kids only makes things worse. Communication is key, in my opinion. A huge crackdown from people who dont understand these kids just pushes them further away.

how would drug tests make it worse? You all act as though it's ok to drink and do drugs.. It's a part of "growing up" and we are to allow it.. Sorry to tell you but we care about your futures and your well being

Dont get my wrong, my orginal post was not saying it was ok. I was just simply saying this is not a new problem or one new limited to our community. I am just saying that when you have adults such as teachers and coaches willing to partake in drinking with the students, then we have a bigger issue than just simply drug testing the kids and banning them from the extra cur. activties if they fail the test.

Maybe if Highland wasn't such a back woods shitty town, and actually had something to do kids wouldn't have to resort to drugs and alcohol to stay sain in that town. If I lived in Highland, and had noisy fucking hicks in my business all the time, I would have to drink or do drugs too.

I am a libertarian, so i advocate the legalization of all drugs. Not a user myself, by the way. I just feel people will do it if they want to. You arent going to stop it. But you can sit on this fucking site and post anonymously, and lose sleep. GET OVER IT!!! This issue is nothing new. Generations and generations have been through this.

If you didnt type like an uneducated dumbass maybe adults would treat you kids with more respect. I am only pointing it out.
