Dear Blue Waves Families,
Due to an increasing concern, the high school administrative team has been working closely to develop strategies to assist our students in making the most sound choices for themselves.
The district takes these matters very seriously and I can assure you that we are working to take several proactive steps to address the topic directly. To date, these have included partnering with local law enforcement and to begin to plan for several upcoming initiatives. In the weeks ahead, we will be hosting a virtual assembly for students about the dangers of alcohol and drug usage and we will be offering training opportunities for our administrators and any interested staff members. Additionally, as partners in education, we will be hosting a community event in the near future to extend Narcan/drug and alcohol awareness training to our residents, families and community.
As you are likely aware, our response to drug and alcohol awareness is largely supported by our team of mental health professionals who work in our schools each day. Should you or your child need assistance at any time, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our school Psychologists, Social Workers and School Counselors.
Please know that a large part of our focus with our students and staff will be to bring a heightened sense of understanding of these important topics. We ask for your continued participation in these conversations and hope you will join us during the upcoming community programs.
