A drug search drill will be held soon at Newtown High School. Parents were sent an email from the principal this week alerting them to the annual activity. Drug search dogs will be brought to the Newtown High School campus in the near future, and parents will be sent a follow up email prior to the drill so that they are not alarmed by an increased police presence. During the drill, there will be a brief "shelter in place" order and hallway movement will be limited. Visitors will not be allowed into the building during that time. The email to parents warning of the drill says that the search is in line with Board of Education policies and the goal of maintaining a drug-free campus.
