Davie County Schools is hosting  a “Drugs Uncovered Workshop and Exhibit” for parents/guardians of children in all grade levels and adults who interact with youth of all ages.

Through a partnership with the Davie County Health Department, the schools are offering this adults only workshop/exhibit.

The free interactive presentation, provided by The Poe Center, will be hosted at all three Davie County middle schools on three separate days in March.

Participants will learn about current drug trends, signs of substance abuse, and how to effectively talk with youth. Participants will explore a simulation of a teenager’s bedroom with typical hiding spots and learn how to identify the ways teens are using common and unique items to conceal and use drugs, alcohol and tobacco.

The program is 6-8 p.m.: on March 8 at North Davie Middle, on March 13 at South Davie Middle, and on March 14 at Ellis Middle.
