The Hampton Township School District, in conjunction with the Pennsylvania Alliance for Safe and Drug Free Children, will present two informational sessions for parents, students and the community on March 22 and 23.
On Wednesday March 22, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in the High School auditorium, an informational session geared toward high school aged students and their parents will be held. Attendees will have the opportunity to watch the video, “Parent 360,” which effectively illustrates how highly addictive drugs impact families. Parents will have the opportunity to meet experts in counseling and law enforcement, and to talk with young adults in recovery, in order to gain information on what to look for regarding drug and alcohol use among teenagers.
On Thursday, March 23, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in the Hampton Middle School auditorium, an informational session geared toward middle school aged children and parents will be held. Due to the sensitive nature of the material being discussed, parents of students in grades 5-8 are invited to attend, but only students in grades 6-8 should attend. Middle schoolers are faced with greater freedoms, increased responsibility and countless opportunities to make important decisions; this informational session will provide them and their parents with the tools and resources necessary to navigate some of those decisions, particularly those relating to drug and alcohol use. Attendees will have the opportunity to watch the video “Wrecked,” and to meet experts in counseling and law enforcement, and to talk with young adults in recovery to gain information on what to look for with drug and alcohol abuse among teenagers.
Those who plan to attend are asked to pre-register. Registration information does not require participants to provide their names or personal information, only a number of people planning to attend. Online registration can be completed here.
