Drug, Alcohol & Tobacco Free Campus Campaign
Today we launched a drug, alcohol and tobacco free campus campaign. During second period, all teachers reminded students of the AHS drug and alcohol policy and the support available to students who are concerned about their use or the use of someone they care about.
The staff is committed to maintaining a safe and drug free environment at AHS. We wore red and white t-shirts emblazoned with the words "You Matter" and let the students know that because each one of them matters, we want them to be healthy and we will support them in making good choices. Inspired by www.AboveTheInfluence.com
, follow up activities will focus on "Living Above the Influence."
The timing of our campaign in April occurs a week before April 20th (or 4/20, a counterculture day to celebrate cannabis). We want to make sure that families are aware of the significance of the date and that AHS students are in school on this and every school day.
