The Monessen School District is partnering with the Westmoreland Drug and Alcohol Commission Inc., (WeDAC) to bring the Saltworks Theater Company to Monessen High School. Saltworks will present “Off-Script” to the students in grades 8 to 12, which focuses on the dangers of drug abuse and underage drinking.
The presentation will be held November 7, 2016 in the auditorium. Drug Enforcement Administration Officer Jon Rasmussen will be available at the presentation to answer any questions that the students and faculty may have.
WeDAC would like to invite you to attend an evening presentation of “Off-Script” on November 7, 2016. WeDAC is very aware of the current issues surrounding drug and alcohol abuse in the community. They would like to provide resources and education about what the community can do to help its children and neighbors.
Beginning at 5:30 that evening, various agencies will be in attendance for you to visit and gather as much information as you can about resources available to the community. Saltworks will then perform a shortened version of the “Off-Script” presentation. This will be followed by presentations from David Hickton, US Attorney, Jon Rasmussen, DEA Agent, Jim Smith, Monessen Police Department, and Sue Soroko with Southwestern Pennsylvania Human Services. The night will end with a question and answer session provided by a panel of professionals in the drug and alcohol field.
The Monessen School District, along with WeDAC, believes it is important to provide Monessen residents with information about resources available to their community.
If you have any questions about the student and/or parent Saltworks presentation, please do not hesitate to call me at 724-684-7100
