  Email   Print

On Monday, Nov. 14, the Lebanon Special School District (LSSD) and Lebanon Police Department will team up to present a student/parent workshop focused on personal safety.

What would you do if you found a suspicious backpack? Would you know how to react if someone offered you drugs? The workshop will be geared around protecting oneself from drug dealers and their dangerous and toxic left-behinds. LPD Cpl. PJ Hardy and Officer Chris Luna will educate students in grades five and up on what to watch for if they see household cleaning products or medicines left in places where they shouldn't be. They will also give tips on what to say if offered drugs or asked to deliver a package or buy products in a store.

The workshop is for students and their parents and is hosted by the LSSD Family Resource Center. It will be held in the Castle Heights Elementary Library from 6 until 8:30 p.m. The workshop, materials and snacks are free, as is child care for younger children.

To learn more or to RSVP, contact Beth Petty at (615) 453-2693 or beth.petty@lssd.org.
