To help prevent the outbreak of heroin from Stevenson they should have locker and bag searches to make sure kids aren't bringing it to school to deal. The police should crack down at popular hangouts during the weekends, and the school should send out an email to the parents of all the students to keep them up to date so they can check in with their children to make sure nothing is wrong. The school could do more than just teach the nurses how to use an epipen like antidote. Heroin is a serious drug, you get addicted right after you do it the first time. According to NBC Chicago news, heroin use among Illinois high school students is a rising problem due to the competition with academics, sports, clubs, etc. The drug is used as a stress relief for the overwhelmed students. Schools, parents, and students themselves shouldn't be putting that much pressure on kids and themselves to cause major drug problems. Overall, a drug like heroin shouldn't even be exposed to high school students, the school and parents should be doing more things to prevent the drug use. What do you think Stevenson should do to prevent drug use throughout the school?
