Announcements and Important Events
The Culpeper County School Board has passed a new policy for the drug testing of student-athletes participating inter-scholastic athletics in middle and high schools. The purpose of the policy is to promote the health, safety, and welfare of student-athletes by deterring the use of harmful substances, detecting harmful substances a student-athlete is using, and to give student-athletes a reason to resist any peer pressure that may present itself. The policy requires a pledge of all student-athletes to not use harmful substances to include: alcohol, tobacco, illegal drugs, unauthorized prescription drugs, performance enhancers, or steroids. Testing will be conducted by a qualified third-party administrator and the privacy and confidentiality of students will be protected. Students determined to be in violation of the drug-free policy will face graduated sanctions affecting their participation in athletic activities. The policy will serve students and parents by providing substance abuse education and counseling for students involved in that component of the program.
