Please invite your family (students and parents), neighbors and friends to join us for the last PTSA meeting of the year. After a brief business meeting to elect new PTSA Officers, the main portion of the meeting will be the panel discussion.
Dr. Denise Koo (former CDC employee, retired) & Carolyn Rader, AICP, Urban and Environmental Planner will moderate a panel presentation that includes Drug Intelligence Officer, William Trivelpiece of the Heroin Response Initiative of the Office of National Drug Control Policy discussing the opioid crisis as it relates to adolescents including the Good Samaritan Law. Dr. Robert Brewer, lead epidemiologist with the CDC’s Alcohol Program, will describe issues related to excessive alcohol use; and Social Worker, Renee Hall-George, LMSW, will speak from personal experience and provide resources for family and friends. There will be ample opportunity to interact with the speakers. This promises to be an engaging and informative meeting.
Please plan to join us to end a significant year at Druid Hills High School.
Thank you all!
