Did you know drug overdoses killed more Americans last year than gun violence or vehicle crashes?

Students and staff across the school system are underlining the importance of a drug-free lifestyle for Red Ribbon Week, the nation’s oldest and largest drug prevention awareness campaign.


Scotchtown Hills Elementary School in Laurel kicked off their campaign with a march celebrating this year’s national theme: “Life Is Your Journey, Travel Drug Free.”


In addition to school activities this week, parents can get involved by taking the Red Ribbon Pledge, committing to talk to kids about the dangers of drug abuse and setting clear rules about not using drugs and enforcing appropriate consequences.
