Rockwood parents of all grade levels are invited to hear from local experts on topics including social media, mental health and suicide awareness, and vaping.
Rockwood has provided this information on their website:
“On Nov. 13, Lafayette High will host a public forum to educate parents and students about drug abuse, suicide prevention and social media. Participants will include representatives of INOBTR (pronounced "I Know Better"), who will address the hazards of social media; CHADS (Communities Healing Adolescent Depression and Suicide), who will discuss prevention measures; and NCADA (National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse), who will speak about the dangers of vaping. Lafayette Principal Dr. Karen Calcaterra said administrators and counselors are continually looking for ways to bring relevant information to educate teens and their families about issues facing young people everywhere. "Knowing that school and home is a partnership," said Calcaterra, "we want to make sure that we are providing tools to support our kids and nurture that relationship. Our hope in combining service providers for this forum is that community members leave with knowledge and skills regarding the topics of drugs, social media, and suicide." The forum, sponsored by Rockwood PIE (Partners in Education), will begin at 6:30 p.m.”
