Student (Athlete) Drug Use in High Schools

I am just studying for finals here, and I had a thought I wanted to share with the zero people that will come upon it.

In two cases, Veronia S.D. v. Acton and Bd. of Education v. Earls, the Supreme Court has upheld random, suspicionless drug testing by schools as to athletes (Veronia) and then all extracurricular participants. 

I had a thought:  What should a parent do in the instance that his or her child is caught having used drugs?  Should the parent (a) sue the school system for finding out?  Or (b) figure out why the child is using drugs and take steps to remedy that use?

Just wondering...
