On Tuesday, May 27, 2014, at 9:15am, police officers from Brecksville, Independence, and Strongsville arrived at Strongsville High School with five specially trained dogs that are employed to detect narcotics and other illegal substances. The dogs examined randomly selected areas of the high school campus that included book bags, classrooms, lockers, restrooms, and the parking lot. In an effort to send the message that illegal activity will not be tolerated, Mr. Mark Smithberger, the high school principal, initiated this search. These types of random searches take place throughout the year.
Steve Breckner, Assistant Principal, said school officials were “very pleased with the cooperation of the students and the staff during the search.”
