NHS goes under code yellow

Northview High School went under a code yellow Thursday afternoon after a student was reported to school administration for allegedly purchasing prescription drugs.

Clay Community School Corporation Supt. Dan Schroeder told The Brazil Times when schools go under code yellow, students still participate in "normal classroom activities."

"We've had code yellows before," Schroeder said. "There were no threats or weapons involved."

The code specifies schools operate under heightened alert status, but students continue normal activities.

However, employees are placed at the front door and visitors are not let in.

According to a press release provided by the school corporation, further investigation concluded that more students may have been involved in the alleged incident.

As a result, the Clay County Sheriff's Department was contacted and a K-9 search of "targeted student lockers" and possessions took place.

Clay County Sheriff Mike Heaton said officials were sent to the school to conduct an investigation.

Heaton added the Clay County Prosector's office and Juvenile Probation were notified of the incident.

It was not confirmed, but Heaton said marijuana was suspected at the school, thus the reason for the K-9 search.

"We're dealing with a lot of stories," Heaton said. "We're sorting it out."

We really need to crack down on these kids. I know there is a lot more going on at the schools than we even know. Parents need to be more proactive in their children's lives and know what is going on.

I commend the swiftness of the Clay County Sheriff's Office in this matter. Stop it before it spreads to more students. you have the right idea

to make our county safe for all of us.

My hat is off to the Sheriff's Department!
