Middle School from 7:15 a.m. to 7:45 a.m.
High School from 7:15 a.m. to 7:40 a.m.
Kids who eat breakfast at school get higher test scores, visit the nurse less often, and are more attentive in class.
The Thomasville City Board of Education approved May 24 a drug testing policy for students at Thomasville High School. This policy begins with the 2016-2017 school year.
Students involved in athletics and extracurricular organizations will be tested. There will be a one-time $20 participation fee. Students involved in multiple activities will only pay $20-a-year. The fee includes the parking fee for students who drive to school.
Twenty percent of these students will be tested four times during the school year. The tests will be random and unannounced. The test will screen for marijuana, cocaine, heroin, and there will be a rotating test for pills such as Xanax and Adderall.
On a first offense, the student will not be able to participate in sports or an organization’s activities for 14 school calendar days.
With a second offense, the student athlete will not be able to participate anymore that particular season. For those students in organizations, they will not be able to participate anymore for that particular semester.
With a third offense, the student will no longer be able to participate in sports or in an extracurricular organization.
