School drug testing supported

School drug testing supported


At a board meeting last week we learned the Bloomfield-Mespo School District is moving toward adopting a random drug testing policy for students. The language is not yet finalized and it has yet to be voted on, but as a community member, parent and paramedic, I whole heartily agree with and put my full support behind this action.

With a drug epidemic in this state that is killing people and destroying families, I appreciate any action taken to protect our kids. My sincere thanks goes to the board of education and the Administration of our school.
