Get Connected offers talk about alcohol, drugs

The Get Connected Program offers parents an opportunity to hear from school resource officers March 14 on “What Every Parent Needs to Know about Drugs and Alcohol.” The presentation will be from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in the Templeton Middle School Large Group Area, N59 W22490 Silver Spring Drive, Sussex.

School resource officers Mark Nihoris, a Waukesha County Sheriff’s deputy who works in the Hamilton School District, and John Gscheidmeier, a Glendale police officer and drug recognition expert at Nicolet High School, will present on:

  • drug use trends in the area;
  • how to know if your child is using; and
  • preventing drug and alcohol use.

Free childcare will be available.

The Get Connected Parent Network is supported by United Way of Waukesha County and is designed to help parents navigate children through their school years. The program provides age-appropriate information, networking with other parents, presentations from professionals and guidance and support.
