Local high school and middle school principals from Freeport, Yarmouth, Falmouth, Cumberland and Gray- New Gloucester are working to help prevent and reduce substance use in their schools by sending a letter to parents/caregivers, encouraging them to talk with their children about the risks of drug or alcohol use.

Tip: Celebrate safely during the end of the fall sports season

Make healthy choices and stay alcohol and drug-free to celebrate the end of your sports season. Plan a dinner out with friends and family, host a game or movie night or take an overnight trip to somewhere new. Take time to reflect on the season and prepare for your next sport or enjoy the off-season.
