    Hey bleepnoid, I’m referring to the principal’s principles. Without principle principal’s principles what would you have? I’ll tell you what you would have. A bunch of non principle principals being principally unprincibalized.

    Since when is this newsworthy?? I see no other MUGSHOTS on the news of people getting caught with Meds that were not prescribed by their doctor???? Hmmmm….

    This county should be ashamed of themselves to be kicking people when they are down like this. Let’s look at the man in the mirror and know that no one is perfect and no family is free of problems. Respect her and her family’s privacy.

    Lets not forget about the 8th grade teacher at canton school district in Bradford county. Remember, she was the teacher that was arrested for possession of heroin, and tampering with physical evidence at the scene of her boyfriend’s, wade sparbanie, heroin death. She messed with evidence before state police arrived. This folks are the junkies that are teaching our children. Real nice huh?

    Drug test all personnel dealing with our children,make it mandatory and random.

    Maybe it is time to randomly drug test educators…..after all they are dealing with our kids.
    We test truck drivers pilots and other union employees

    • Bleepnoid

      Raise taxes to pay for this? There is already random testing, involved. Did you not get the memo?

      • jim

        Random testing no I didn’t get the memo…is this the only school district to do so.
        Pay for it be spending less on sports pensions and Cadillac benefits….from a 401k taxpayer who has being contributing to their benefits for more then 30 yrs.
        We rank in the 20’s globally in high school education….money and time at school could be put towards a better education.
