Earlier this week, the Tomahawk School District worked in cooperation with the Tomahawk Police Department to conduct a drug search on the school grounds.
The search was part of an ongoing attempt to raise awareness of drug and alcohol use and abuse by school aged children as well as increasing efforts to keep the school drug and alcohol free.
On Wednesday afternoon, drug dogs were used to search lockers, hallways storage areas and parking lots.
According to a news release from the school, the search yielded 1 case of marijuana debris in a car in the high school parking lot.
The district and the police department are working together to plan for additional drug searches throughout the school year. The district says that parents are encouraged to talk to their children about the search and the dangers of drug and alcohol abuse.
