MHS will benefit from a Mamaroneck Schools Foundation grant to raise awareness among faculty, staff, parents and students around teen alcohol and drug use. A series of events is planned beginning Wednesday, November 1, when parents and community members are invited to a “Hidden in Plain Sight” presentation at 7pm in the Tiered Classroom at Mamaroneck High School covering current alcohol, drug and concealment trends and identifiers.
Detective Jermaine Galloway, who has worked in law enforcement for 25+ years, will unveil the hidden clues that a teen may have in his/her room indicating drug activity, share information about alcohol and drug clothing, and provide more than 70 visual aids (drug concealment containers, drug paraphernalia, etc.) for attendees to hold and become familiar with. The premise behind the evening is that “you cannot stop what you don’t know”. All community members are welcome. This is a way to stay informed and keep on top of the ever-evolving drug trends in teens.
Assemblies tailored to students in all grades at Mamaroneck High School, also part of the Mamaroneck Schools Foundation grant, will be held later in November with other guest speakers.
