It’s that time of the year again. Red Ribbon week will take place October 23-31, 2020. The Red Ribbon Campaign was started when drug traffickers in Mexico killed DEA agent Kiki Camarena in 1985. The Red Ribbon symbolizes intolerance toward the use of drugs. The theme for Red Ribbon this year is, “Be Happy, Be Brave, Be Drug Free.”
The activity for Hillside High School is outlined below. I encourage you to share the information with your students as well as the Red Ribbon Week video that I attached. Of course, everything will be executed virtually, but I believe it is important to continue the celebration. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me directly.
