Good evening. This week (March 20-26) is National Drug and Alcohol Facts Week – an annual, week-long health observance that inspires dialogue about drug use and addiction among youth. Substance Abuse Counselors will sponsor NDAFW in schools and help students understand the myths about drugs and alcohol. During this week, SACs will provide drug and alcohol facts to help keep APS community safe. Read more here. The PRC has recently added three new substance use videos to our website:
- Understanding the Signs and Symptoms of Opioid Abuse
- Substance Use and Neuro-diverse Kids
The Arlington Special Education Advisory Committee (ASEAC) meeting will be held tomorrow evening (Tuesday, 3.21) at 7pm.
