Teens and Drugs: If your child is not using, he is dealing with it

Four West Seneca Central schools, in partnership with Kids Escaping Drugs, invite parents to a “Town Hall Meeting on Teens and Drugs” on Thursday, Oct. 28, at West Seneca West Senior High School.

In connection with Red Ribbon Week, Oct. 24-30, the principals of West Seneca East and West senior highs and middle schools strongly encourage parents to attend this interactive program that will focus on teen drug use. The premise behind the program is that although your child may not be using drugs, he or she is still dealing with this issue.

“Teens and Drugs” is intended to be an honest conversation about the use of drugs in our schools, neighborhoods and homes. Medical professionals, school social workers and counselors, local law enforcement and students and families affected by drug use will be on hand to present information, share firsthand experiences and answer any questions.  Presenters will include soon-to-be graduates of the Renaissance Campus substance abuse program and their families. The format of the program will have the feel of an old town hall style meeting.

Though this program is an initiative of the district’s secondary schools, all parents are welcome to attend. This event is for parents only. Childcare will be available on site for any children older than age 4.

The program will begin at 6:30 p.m. in the West Senior auditorium, 3330 Seneca St., West Seneca. Refreshments will be served.
