    Drug Abuse Symptoms

      1. A student appearing at school or at a school-sponsored activity demonstrating behavior which might indicate drug ingestion, or who admits to a school person that he/she has taken drugs, should be treated as in a potentially very hazardous situation. The student in question then, for his/her own protection, should be removed from contact with other students and placed under the care of a designated adult at school.
      2. The parents should be notified that the student is exhibiting symptoms that may need medical attention.
      3. If parents cannot be reached, the school administrator may contact the student's physician or his/her designated alternate.
      4. The student known to have been taking drugs should not return to school except on advice of competent medical authority. The situation might be handled as any other problem which requires medical clearance for a student's return to school.
