Do you know the warning signs of drug addiction or abuse? Eating disorders? Self-mutilation? Would you recognize smoking devices or common household items that can be abused by children?

Until the courts pass out harsher discipline for offenders, drug sales and abuse will continue. The police do their part, and put their lives at risk, then see the offenders out the next day. Get with it judges. This community is rampant with drugs.

I agree with Historian , these pansy judges need to get off the soft shoe act and start delivering real consequences to these kids AND some parents . My only question would be , why was our local law enforcement departments not involved in this program . It would have been nice to see a familiar face there.

This article is "spot on". Parents need to be aware. The police and judges do not live in each home, but parents do. Most of the teens and young adults I am friends with are doing at least one of the mentioned. As the article states, these are young adults that are excelling in high school and college, play sports, do volunteer work, etc.

There might have been more than 20 people there, too, if parents had received notice a week or so ahead of the program. I got a phone call from the school just hours before this event. Sounds like a very good program was missed by many who could have benefited from it.

I agree. I got the call a couple hours before too.

In case, no one has noticed, this CEVSD administration is reactive and not proactive. The right hand never knows what the left hand is doing. The surprising thing is that anyone even thought to send out a notice at all. The trickle down theory isn't just applicable to economics; look at this school system. You have an ineffective superintendent (if you had witnessed his interview on WTOV9 concerning the millions of dollars received recently by the district, you would have to agree! What an embarrassment he was!), and then CHS , B-HMS, and CE are run by even more ineffective principals. The only thing holding the district together is the teachers, and that ,unfortunately, will not last forever.

Why is it that that so many of you but blame on the school for something that is your responsibility. The school is responsible only to teach your child. You're the ones responsible to raise them. The school is not responsible to let you know about community programs. Why is it the schools responsibility to feed them at no cost to you? Why is it responsible to provide supplies? Why is it their responsibility to bus them? The list goes on.

The school does a lot for the community's children, so where is the appreciation. If you think they're doing a rotten job then quit belly aching, get educated and run the place.

All you are is a bunch of whiners.

I agree. Liberal indoctrination of the kids is a lot of work, so get off the school's back.

I agree, but the schools don't feed the kids.....the property owners do...and the list goes on.
