Amity High School to hold discussion on 'realities and misconceptions' of drug use by students

WOODBRIDGE - A panel discussion on drugs at Amity High School is scheduled to take place at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 2, according to Amity High School Principal Charles Britton’s Friday Highlights email.
The Amity administration is holding the presentation, which also will include representatives from area agencies, legal experts and health professionals.
According to Britton’s message “the panel presentation will address the realities and misconceptions related to illegal drug use by students at Amity Regional High School.”
While the email did not note particular cases, in December one Amity student was arrested for heroin possession and five students were arrested for possession of marijuana and possession of marijuana with intent to sell.
In April, police used dogs to search lockers of all the 1,640 students and the schools parking lot, which led to one student’s arrest. No drugs were found in lockers.
Superintendent of Schools John Brady had said he requested the dog search because about 20 students last school year showed symptoms of being under the influence of prescription drugs while on school grounds.
The presentation follows parent conferences and the goal of the presentation is to present the facts related to drug problems in the community, the email said.
