Within an effort to keep our area educated and reduce confusion about critical matters, I’m offering regular revisions and informative information on appropriate topics influencing the Howard County Public School System (HCPSS). Recently, I???ve noticed alot in Area about elderly week and proms. Please share safety-related information with students and parents:
We are in prom season’s middle and all Howard County high schools present after- prom activities, backed #8217 & from the faculties; guardian-educator interactions. Both prom guests -attenders are not unwelcome to participate in – festivities. Some pupils have now been involved in boosting finances for these activities through packages including the neighborhood- paid County Invitational Swim Meet.
The Howard County Public School Program (HCPSS) spouses with HC drug-free to market booze/drug safety, and HC DrugFree makes displays for parents & teens at highschools throughout every season. Individuals are involved by them in promoting alcohol/drug-safety while in the faculties through their Adolescent Advisory Team. HC DrugFree vendors an HC DrugFree type within the HCPSS-sponsored HoCo Film Fest (scholar-designed video opposition).
Here are a few “Tips to Maintain Kids Protected on Prom Night by Howard Region drug-free leader Joan Webb Scornaienchi and guest-blogger. And below are a few HCPSS Assets for Parents concerned about alcohol abuse and kids.
After School ???
I know everybody promotes young people to ???play week activities that are senior are safe???ed during by it. Like the Howard State actions, the ???Play It Safe??? method in Ocean Area vendors drug-free and special liquor events in June for senior school graduates honoring to the coast. The Play It Protected plan web-page has data for students and parents.
HC DrugFree placed ???Senior Week Safe in Ocean City??? classes for parents this spring. Verify for announcements of any extra times in HCPSS Media.
There are lots of safety-related concerns to think about before parents consent to let their seniors a week to invest unsupervised anywhere. At the seaside, we need to consult with teens about water protection, using services and secure activities, including the Mature Week bus pass in Ocean Area, discouraging underage drinking and using crosswalks to safely mix highways.
Let???s interact to make certain pupils possess a healthful safe and happy delighted end towards the school-year.
