Parent Night on Monday, October 21

Dear parents,

Just a few reminders about upcoming events…

Parent Night
Our Parent Night on Monday, October 21, seems even more important since the latest incident in Florida where students were using KIK messenger to bully a student who ended up committing suicide.

It is a fast changing world online. It is important for us to keep up and know the latest trends and concerns to keep our youth safe.

DJs Restaurant will be donating food for dinner and Black River will be providing child care services.

Please come on Monday to learn some important tools in keeping up with your teenager online. Dinner will be at 5:30 in the Community Center followed by the programs at the high school from 6-7:30.

For some reason, PowerSchool is not sending out emails to parents who have requested them. We are addressing the issue with them. Until it has been fixed, you can always see announcements on the web site or on the PowerSchool parent portal (click on Daily Bulletin in the left column).

SAFE Meeting
Black River is hosting the SAFE meeting (Substance Awareness for Educators) on for Wednesday, October 23rd at the Ludlow Town Hall from 8:30 to 10:30.    The topic of discussion is the decriminalization of marijuana and its impact on our children and community.   

There will be panel discussion on this topic with plenty of opportunity to ask questions to our panel members. 

We anticipate an informative and lively community dialogue on the enforcement, prevention, and education of marijuana in our schools and communities. The community forum will be recorded by LPCTV and can be viewed on their local channel.
