Congratulations to those accepted To Ashtabula Technical & Career Campus for 2019-2020!!




Dear Lakeside High School Parent/Guardian(s):


We are so excited that this year we are able to offer students the chance to be a part of our school’s chapter of Drug Free Clubs of America (DFCA)! This unique club combines the efforts of schools, parents and the community into one prevention tool to protect students from experiencing the spiraling consequences of teenage drug and alcohol abuse. Very simply stated, the DFCA is a voluntary club that students can choose to participate in which gives them an added reason to say “no” to drugs. This is an uplifting program created originally by firefighters for schools to focus on rewarding students who are making drug-free choices, and ensuring that those teens have a solid plan to stand up to peer pressure when they may need it the most.

Take a moment to read the enclosed information, discuss it, and complete the application if your student would like to join. By participating, students agree to random drug screens during the school year. Lakeside High School, Youth Opportunities and various other businesses in and around Ashtabula will also offer several perks to the students to get them excited about this opportunity (i.e. possible discounts at restaurants, businesses and opportunities to win raffle prizes, etc. throughout the school year.)

We are currently accepting applications for this school year. There is NO cost to you or the student. With the help of the Robert J. Morrison Foundation and local businesses they will be covering the drug testing and administrative costs. We will be working with ACMC and DFCA Headquarters to schedule an initial first drug test and then randomly throughout the school year.

          From our perspective, this is a very important program for all of our students. Several of the benefits are that students can use it as an ‘excuse’ to tell others why they won’t do drugs (“I can’t, I may be tested…”). It also helps to create rewards and positive peer pressure amongst the students. Members of DFCA will also receive special recognition and rewards at school and throughout the school year which will be positive motivation for more students to make the pledge to be drug free. (More details to come on the special recognition and rewards.) Not only will DFCA look great on job and college applications, students will also receive a certificate that they can present to their employers showing that they have remained drug free.

        If you have any further questions, please go to the Drug Free Club Website In addition, you may contact Melissa Nooney at Please return the pamphlet to either Mrs. Nooney.
