"The Vicariate of Monroe Catholic Schools considers substance, chemical and alcohol abuse a serious social problem. We recognize that the problem is community-wide, resulting in consequences, which impact the school (students, faculty, and families). Our schools will reach out and offer help to any student or staff member who has a problem with substance abuse. We affirm that chemical dependency is a chronic, progressive disease that touches all persons in the dependent’s life. We know from experience that treatment is available and recovery is quite possible. We commit ourselves to facilitating the process of recovery in any reasonable way.
Therefore, our school pledges to provide firm, yet compassionate support and action to any member of our community who is affected by alcohol and/or drug use/abuse.
Finally, we are aware of the power and allure that alcohol and other drugs hold. We commit ourselves to do everything reasonable to keep our school and events free of alcohol and other drugs. We will deal swiftly and firmly with anyone bringing these substances into our schools or school-sponsored activities.
We have set forth a standard of no alcohol or other drug use for all of our schools. We commit to offer support and assistance to these members of our community who choose to live their lives free of alcohol and other drugs.
