From your Chair… Christine E. E’Connor
Within an effort to keep our area educated and reduce confusion about essential subjects, I am offering frequent improvements and factual info on timely topics influencing the Howard County Public School System (HCPSS). Lately, I???ve observed a great deal in Ocean City about proms and elderly week. Please share safety related info with pupils and parents:
We are in the centre of prom time and all Howard County public high schools present after- pursuits, backed from the colleges’ guardian-teacher associations. Both prom people -attenders are delightful to participate in – festivities. Some individuals have now been involved in increasing finances for these gatherings through packages including the area- financed County Invitational Swim Meet.
The Howard County Public School System (HCPSS) lovers with HC DrugFree to advertise liquor/drug-safety, and HC DrugFree makes displays for parents & adolescents at highschools throughout the year. They contain individuals in promoting alcohol/drug-safety inside the faculties through their Youngster Advisory Team. HC DrugFree vendors an HC DrugFree category inside the HCPSS-sponsored HoCo Film Fest (student-designed picture competition).
Here are a few “Tips to Preserve Teenagers Safe on #8221 & Prom Night; by Howard County DrugFree leader Webb Scornaienchi and guest blogger. And here are a few HCPSS Assets for Parents worried about kids and alcohol misuse.
After Graduation ???
I am aware everyone encourages young people to ???play it safe??? during senior week routines. Similar the ???Play It Safe??? software in Ocean Area, to the Howard District routines sponsors specific booze and drugfree gatherings in July for high-school graduates enjoying to the shoreline. The Protected system website has data for parents and students.
DrugFree ???Senior Week placed Safe in Ocean City??? classes for parents this spring. Examine for ads of any additional classes in HCPSS News.
There are various safety-related troubles to contemplate before parents consent to enable their seniors a week to invest unsupervised anywhere. In the seaside, we have to talk to adolescents about water protection, using safe pursuits and services, like the $5 Elderly Week bus-pass in Ocean Area, discouraging underage drinking and using crosswalks to safely cross freeways.
Let???s come together to ensure learners possess a healthy, protected and satisfied end for the school-year.
