HC Drug Free Event, April 1, 2019

Fri, 03/22/2019 - 8:48am

HC Drugfree Senior Week program at Marriotts Ridge on Monday, April 1, 2019, at 7:00 pm. This is HC Drugfree’s last chance to reach the hundreds of families that will send their seniors off to the beach and they (and we) want to keep our students safe.
 
If you are willing, please consider sending out a message to your families about the program that night. Joan and HCDrugfree knows that parents will speak to their seniors about alcohol, but they probably won’t discuss all that is presented by the Ocean City Police Department or the Beach Patrol. Here are some points they would like stressed:
 
•    Water safety: how to handle rip currents, diving into shallow water, etc.
•    Beach safety: keep from getting buried in sand, playing ball, etc.
•    Parental liability for students under 18
•    Conversations to have with your senior before beach week
•    Crossing Coastal Highway and legal issues
•    Lease agreements and how to protect yourself
•    Fines (fake IDs, noise, sleeping in vehicles, etc.)
•    Realities of incarceration from an inside view
