Drug Testing Resources
Parents frequently ask me how to tell if their child is using drugs. The only sure way to tell is by using a drug test. We now have professional 10 panel drug testing kits available through my office at school. They test for marijuana, opiates, narcotics, cocaine and amphetamines like meth. They sell for $15.00 payable to St. Anthony High School. Directions make it simple for parents to test their child in the privacy of their own home at any time of the day. Additional step by step directions are online at TestMyTeen.com.
Also available, thanks to Police Chief John Ohl, are coupons for a free drug test kit at TestMyTeen.com online. These are the same kits available at school but can be ordered online for free. Coupons are available on the counters in the middle school, high school and district offices or by calling Dana Niklaus, District Social Worker at 612-706-1109.
