Recently, a great deal was noticed by I???ve about proms and senior week. Please share safety-related data with pupils and parents:

Both attendees -attenders are pleasant to participate in – festivities. Some individuals have been involved in boosting finances for these events through packages including the group- financed County Swim Meet.
The Howard County Public School System (HCPSS) associates with HC DrugFree to promote alcohol/drug safety, and HC DrugFree makes presentations for parents & adolescents at high schools throughout the year.
