Interquest Detection Canines

Overview of School Visitation Program


The Detection Canine team comes to your school multiple times throughout the school year. The visits are random and unannounced. The Dogs that visit are student friendly Labrador and Golden Retrievers. The program is designed to keep Illegal Drugs, Abused Medication, Alcohol, and Weapons off of your school campus.


The Dogs can find Contraband. Contraband consists of:

  • Illegal Drugs:  Marijuana (still illegal for individuals under the age of 21), Methamphetamine, Cocaine, Ecstasy, L.S.D., Heroin.

  • Medication: Prescription: Ritalin, Vicodin, OxyContin. etc.
    Over-the Counter: Sudafed, Benadryl, Bufferin etc.

  • Alcoholic Beverages: Beer, Wine, Vodka, Whisky, Everclear, etc.

  • Gunpowder and Firecrackers. This includes Firearms & Ammunition.

The Dogs Will Sniff:

  • School Lockers.

  • Classrooms: Includes-backpacks, purses; desks&~.

  • Cars: In all school designated student parking areas,

  • Common Areas: Restrooms, Gym Changing areas, Library, all other public areas.

  • The Dogs never sniff people

When the dog visits a classroom students will be asked to:

  • Step outside of the classroom for a few minutes with their teacher.

  • Backpacks, pens, pencils, jackets & caps remain in the class room.

If the dog finds the odor of Contraband (an alert) on a car, locker, backpack or purse, an inspection will take place. Students are always treated with respect. A student is never considered for any type of discipline unless contraband is actually found.

  • A school Administrator and the Student will always be present and observe the inspection of the car, locker, backpack, purse or any item on which the odor was detected.

  • Any Contraband found will be placed into a clear plastic bag, sealed, and turned over to the school. The Principal will determine any disciplinary action in accordance with existing school policy.

  • Students should never bring Illegal Drugs, Alcoholic Beverages, Medication or Firearms to School. The Detection Canine Team will be visiting on campus to help ensure the safety and security of everyone’s learning experience.



State law requires that all minors attend school full time. Regular attendance is essential to learning and academic success. Attendance is taken each period and is noted in the attendance system. If a student is absent for an unexcused reason, the parent/guardian will receive an automated phone call notifying them. We believe that communication is key to minimize student absence and/or truancy.

Medical Authorization


If students need to take medication on campus for a long or short term medical condition, a Medical Authorization form must be completed and filed with the nurse's office before students will be allowed to use their medication.  



Students are expected to come to school every day with the essential items they need to be successful in their classes. Additionally, parents are expected to communicate necessary information (pick-up schedule, medical appointments, etc.) with students prior to the start of the school day. These expectations ensure that instructional time is maximized for your student and their teachers and that work time is maximized for our office personnel. Please support these efforts by ensuring your student comes to school every day prepared to learn and informed of home-related needs. In the event that items need to be delivered, students will not be released from class, to ensure instructional time is not interrupted. Students will be expected to pick up delivered items at the end of the school day. Exceptions will be made for emergency situations.


Off campus food vendor deliveries to students will be turned away at the main office. If a parent/care giver wishes to deliver food to a student, the parent/caregiver must bring the food to the Attendance office, and hand the delivery directly to the student during the lunch hour. Students will not be allowed to pick up food outside of the main office or the school gates. Additionally, please refrain from delivering balloons and flowers to students. These items are distracting and will be kept in the main office until the end of the day when students can pick them up. Students who bring these items onto the school campus may be asked to take them to the main office for storage until the end of the day.
