Saint Thomas Academy enforces the following policy:
During the calendar year, regardless of the quantity, a student shall not: (1) use or possess a beverage
containing alcohol; (2) use or possess tobacco or smokeless tobacco; or, (3) use, consume, have in possession,
buy, sell or give away any other controlled substance.
1. The bylaw applies to the 12-month calendar year.
2. It is not a violation for a student to be in possession of a controlled substance specifically prescribed for his
use and the school nurse has been notified that the student has the substance in his possession.
3. A violation may affect a student’s status on a team.
First Violation: After confirmation of the first violation, the student loses eligibility for the next two consecutive
interscholastic contests or two weeks of a season in which the student is a participant, whichever is greater. No
exception is permitted for a student who becomes a participant in a treatment program.
Second and Subsequent Violations: After confirmation of the second or subsequent violation, the student
loses eligibility for the next 12 consecutive interscholastic contests in which the student is a participant or four
weeks, whichever is greater.
Denial Disqualification: A student is disqualified from all inter-scholastic athletics for nine additional weeks
beyond the student’s original period of ineligibility when the student denies violation of the rules, is allowed to
participate and then is subsequently
found guilty of the violation.
If a student has a confirmed chemical violation (tobacco, alcohol, and/or controlled substance), he is not
permitted to serve as a team captain during the school year the violation occurs and the following school year.
The school year begins on the first day of the first athletic practice in the month of August.
