GROWING UP DRUG FREE: A PARENT’S GUIDE TO PREVENTION
The Drug Enforcement Administration partnered with the U.S. Department of Education to update Growing Up Drug Free: A Parent’s Guide to Prevention, which was last revised in 2012. This 40-page booklet offers information to help parents and other caregivers raise drug-free children. The guide includes an overview of substance use among youth; descriptions of substances young people may use; a look at risk factors that may make kids more vulnerable to trying and using drugs, and protective factors to offset those risks; suggestions for how to talk to children about drugs, regardless of their age; and tips on what to do if you suspect your child is using alcohol, tobacco, or other drugs. The publication is posted online at www.getsmartaboutdrugs.gov/publications.

Students and grandparents enjoy the opportunity to spend time together as grandchildren accompany their grandparents for both activities. If your student's grandparents have never received an invitation to Grandparents' Day, we have created an online form so you can easily provide their contact information. (If you have provided this information before, it is not necessary to do so again.) More information about our special grandparents' activities can be found here. If you have any questions, please contact Margaret Jones at or 918.609.7142. Thanks so much for your help!
