Are you finding it hard to keep up with the daily risks our youth face? Do you ever feel “out of the loop” with what’s going on in the life of your child? Do you not know how to approach conversation about the dangers of alcohol and substance abuse with your child? We recognize the struggle and want to help.

Please join the Erie County Council for Prevention of Alcohol and Substance Abuse (ECCPASA) for a Parent Forum discussion to help parents become more informed and educated on the risks children face daily.

The sessions will take place at CHS on:

Wednesday, September 26, 2018 6pm-8pm (for High school Parents)

Wednesday, October 3, 2018 6pm-8pm (for Middle school Parents).  

Any parent can attend either session. The high school program will outline current trends and warning signs, and the middle school program will focus more on prevention for the younger student.

We would encourage every parent to attend these sessions, as they will be informative, relevant, and necessary as your child navigates middle and high school. No school or students are immune to these dangers.

Our annual Back-to-School packet is in the mail and headed to your house! In the meantime, you can view all of the documents enclosed in this mailing at the Family Resources section of Carefully read this information as it will update you on all the latest developments at CHS and helps to ensure our students get off to a smooth start for the school year!
