Protecting #OurKids

Alcohol, Vaping, & Other Drugs

Thursday, November 21, 2019, 6:30pm

Renfroe Middle School, Media Center
​220 W College Ave, Decatur, GA 30030

Juuling, Vaping, Edibles, the “Opioid Crisis,” and a host of other substance-use terms have become regular headline news.

Perhaps you have heard talk about these and other substances in use by youth within our community. Because #OurKids rely on us for information and guidance, as parents, teachers, and caregivers (with kids of any age) we need to stay informed. We need to know how to proactively protect #OurKids.

You are not alone trying to make sense of all of this. Please join us.
