Attendance at Bishop Kelley High School is not a right, but a privilege. With this privilege comes responsibility. One of the greatest factors in an adolescent’s choices regarding drugs and alcohol is the expectations of his/her parents. Bishop Kelley High School expects that parents communicate clearly to their student that the illegal use of drugs and alcohol is not acceptable. All students, parents and guardians are held to a high standard of behavior. As a result, parents providing or condoning the use of alcohol or other illegal substances risk the immediate termination of their student’s enrollment.

OVERVIEW OF OKLAHOMA’S SOCIAL HOST LAW:
TRENDS IN ALCOHOL AND DRUG MISUSE AMONG OKLAHOMA YOUTH
Presentation at Youth Services of Tulsa, 311 S. Madison Ave.
TUESDAY, MARCH 4, 6:30 p.m.
We encourage parents to attend an information session, “Overview of Oklahoma’s Social Host Law: Trends in Alcohol and Drug Misuse among Oklahoma Youth” presented by Agent Eric Smoot, Assistant Agent in Charge, Oklahoma Alcoholic Beverage Laws Enforcement Commission. This information is critical for parents and caregivers, given the high rate of death caused by prescription and alcohol abuse among our youth. Oklahoma has the fifth highest prescription drug overdose death rate in the country, according to a 2013 report. Agent Smoot will discuss warning signs, prevention, and intervention tips.
The event is free of charge and open to the public. No registration is necessary.
