Bishop schools urge parents to attend drug-awareness event

Press release

The Bishop Unified School District in partnership with the Bishop Police Department is pleased to announce a very important informational event designed to raise drug awareness among the parents of our community.

Bishop_High_School

The event is planned for Tuesday September 29 at 6 PM at the BUHS Auditorium and will feature local law enforcement officers and narcotics experts. The audience for this event is anyone within our community who has school age children.

Included in the discussion will be what drugs your children will be exposed to, what signs to look for that indicate drug use, how to talk to kids about drugs, and “The Rule of Five” which recommends that parents start discussing drugs with their children a full five years before the children are typically even exposed to them.

Don’t miss this opportunity to educate yourself about the dangers our students face within our own community and join us on Tuesday September 29 at 6 PM in the BUHS Auditorium.

This is an adults only event but there will be childcare available in classrooms for those parents who cannot provide their own. For more information please contact the main office at any of the Bishop schools. We look forward to seeing you on the 29th!

I agree, seeing things in a new light by way of a change in perspective or environment does wake people up, yes jail can work, but it has failed society by making us believe it is the best method.. Jail isn’t always the best answer, we are products of our… Read more »

This is good, tell the kids what they need to hear, we should guide them to a state where they can make educated decisions. Keep it real, tell them how at any point any one of them may be where they are in a position to make a decision that… Read more »

Schoolteacher, I’m not sure what your meaning is . But, I am sure that our local police department has set a very sad example of how to behave civily lately. I also think it’s sad that only twenty seniors showed up to the mandatory meeting for kids that want to… Read more »

I guarantee you, more than 20 seniors from Bishop High are going on to college, so one has to question either the ‘mandatory’ nature of the seminar or the value of the seminar. Or, possibly, it was for senior’s wanting to go on to 4 year college. That is what… Read more »

sugar magnolia….The reason for the high intrest on the loans is because so many of them are never paid on,let alone paid off….I know of grown-ups 30 + years old getting “student loans”,going to college,both attending and on-line and, more or less, using the student loan money as a way… Read more »
