Tolton HS locked down for drug sweep

Tolton High School in Columbia was locked down for a short time as part of a planned drug sweep.

Columbia Police conducted a K-9 search in the school for illegal drugs after school administrators got information pointing to possible drugs being brought into the school.

School officials said they don’t know if Tolton students were involved or when it might have happened.

No drugs or illegal substances were found in the search.

Principal Kristie Wolfe sent a letter to parents concluding, “We did not initiate the search because we expected that there were drugs in our school. Rather, we expect that there are NOT drugs or other illicit substances in our school, and we intend to keep it that way.”

Wolfe went on to say, “We will continue to proactively monitor our school’s policies and procedures and to take decisive actions when needed.”
