• Alcohol & Drug Prevention Education

    WS/FC Schools provides students K-12 an age-appropriate, grade sequential, alcohol and drug specific curriculum to equip them with accurate information and life skills which influence their decisions concerning the use of alcohol and drugs. Alcohol and drug prevention education empowers youth to avoid problems related to the use/abuse of chemical substances prior to their onset.
     
    Substance Abuse Intervention
     
    Recognizing that alcohol/drug abuse is a progressive addictive illness, a process to interrupt the use/abuse cycle of users has been implemented across all of our schools. Youth who experiment with any type of mood-altering substance could be at any place on the continuum of drug abuse, thus a thorough screening is imperative to determine the appropriate intervention for each individual. WS/FC Schools has contracted services with INSIGHT Human Services, Inc. to provide these screenings, and subsequent education and/or treatment interventions for students found in violation of our district alcohol and drug policy. However, our Safe & Drug-Free Schools office is committed to helping find an appropriate resource for any family or student seeking help and support for a problem with substance use. We are here to help and calls will be kept confidential and may be made anonymously.

    Pill Collection Dropbox
    Lobby of the Public Safety Center
    725 N. Cherry St., W-S
    M-F, 8am-5pm
     
    Dispose of expired, unneeded, or unwanted prescription pills properly and safely by bringing them to the Public Safety Center, 725 N. Cherry St. in W-S. Citizens should check with the Officer at the front desk for instructions on how to use the pill collection dropbox.
     
    Proper and safe disposal of pills reduces the possibility of accidental or criminal use of prescription drugs. It is also a safer alternative to landfills and sewage which do not neutralize the medications and so do not protect against the contamination of public water supplies.
