Talking to Kids about Drugs:

While we understand that this may not be a comfortable conversation to have with your children, we encourage you to talk with your son or daughter about any questions and/or feelings they may have about drug and alcohol use. Please take a moment to read the attached documents for more information.

We know that students learn in many different ways. By approaching these types of conversations holistically, we hope that our students/your children will have the tools they need to make healthy behavioral choices.
