Now a Zero Tolerance Policy
By Vicki Harsha
October 17, 2006
On Monday, the 16th of October, I attended a parent meeting
for wrestlers and their parents.
Lynn Wadley, our new Athletic Director made sure to inform the
kids at the meeting that the School Board had just voted and
passed a new policy regarding drug/alcohol/tobacco use: There
is now a ZERO TOLERANCE, one strike and you are out policy.
This change was fairly recent, and I was unaware of it until
To our School Board members, both new and old, I commend you
on this decision. It is decisive, leaves no room for "interpretation"
and sends a strong message to the whole student body of both
schools, Kayhi and Schoenbar.
I especially would like to acknowledge the school board member
or members who brought this very important issue to the table
and made sure it was handled quickly, within the first 5-6 weeks
Again, thank you for a job well done!
