Drug and Alcohol Prevention Information

Drug/Alcohol Prevention and Student Safety Information: “Did You Know”

Based on the popular novel of the same name, a new online series produced by Netflix called 13 Reasons Why dramatizes bullying, depression, sexual assault and suicide and is gaining popularity among young people across the country. The series is rated MA (mature audiences) and because of the mature nature of the content, we want to make parents aware of the widespread effect of the program on children and on the day-to-day conversations they are having with one another.  If your child is aware of this program, has watched it or is watching it, we encourage you to have an open dialogue with him/her regarding the subject matter.  Should you need additional information visit https://www.jedfoundation.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/13RW-Talking-Points-JED-SAVE-Netflix.pdf. If you need individual assistance, contact your child’s school counselor. Please know that we are here to help.

Save a Life!

Each day 160,000 students do not go to school because they are bullied, teased and harassed.
"I have this theory that if one person can go out of their way to show compassion, then it will start a chain reaction of the same. People will never know how far a little kindness can go."  (Rachel Scott, 17)

Produced by the Theatre Productions students at Plano West Senior High School, “Save a Life” utilizes student performances to deliver a message regarding bullying and suicide prevention. To enhance the impact, the performers included an interactive conclusion to the performance which enabled the audience to participate and established a very personal dimension.   This message was delivered to both adult and student audiences.
