Cabarrus High Schoolers Get ‘Welcome Bags’ That Include Condoms

Welcome Carolina Plott Hound Readers!


After receiving a tip from a parent in Carbarrus county that condoms were being given out in “Welcome Bags” to high school students, I filed a Freedom of Information request with Carbarrus County Schools.

The response to the question were condoms distributed was a ‘yes’. A representative from Cabarrus County Schools however indicated the school itself did not distribute them. Instead, persons from Rowan-Cabarrus Community College gave out these “Welcome Bags”.

If you ask me, that’s splitting hairs by Cabarrus County Schools. They didn’t give the condoms out themselves, but allowed an outside group to do so?  Weak.

I also included a request for information regarding the Gay-Straight-Alliance (GSA), which according to a parent was being actively promoted by a teacher at a Cabarrus school. The response was there were ‘no communications’ on that topic that the Cabarrus official was aware of. Perhaps we should check the emails at Cox Mills High, where GSA is listed as an extra-curricular activities club.  Maybe we should look at North Rowan High?

UPDATE: “(9)  Contraceptives, including condoms and other devices, shall not be made available or distributed on school property.” (NC GS 115c-81)

    Will someone with Cabarrus County Schools be held accountable for breaking the law? This is exactly what you get when GLESN and these Gay-Straight Alliance sex clubs come in to our schools. Unfortunately, there is very little that can be done to stop it.

    Explain this to me: Cabarrus is a solid Republican County. Why are the Republican officials in this county allowing this to happen? This is why so many active Republicans are getting increasingly disillusioned with our party’s leadership. Will someone in the Cabarrus GOP explain this to the readers of this column?
