School District 73 spreading the message as grads prepare to celebrate: be careful.
Director of Instruction for Secondary Learning Services, Rick Kienlein says, the school district has a clear message for students ahead of graduation celebrations, with the amount of overdose deaths in the province still climbing.
“Act in a safe, smart and responsible manner. Look out for each other, and make sure that no one is left alone. Of course the risks associated with using drugs and alcohol, especially at this time with the prevalence of fentanyl are openly discussed in our schools and our classrooms.”
Kienlein says, Safe Grad activities are not school sponsored and are run by parent committees, but the district does work with them to help when they can.
