Parents and high school students are invited to attend an important panel discussion, “Teens and Substances – Their Health, The Law and Your Liability.” The program will be held Wednesday, March 26 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the Rye High School Performing Arts Center. The organizers — Rye Youth Council, Rye City School District, RHS PO — are confident that the discussion will present new and relevant information, and hope it will lead to a continued discussion at home.
The Rye Youth Council Players, an improv troupe of Rye High students, will act out several troubling yet plausible scenarios. These will be discussed from both the legal and health perspective by a panel, which will include representatives from the Westchester County District Attorney’s office and the Westchester County and Rye police departments, and an ER physician from White Plains Hospital. Ellen Morehouse, Executive Director of Student Assistant Service Corp., will moderate the discussion.
The audience will learn about important provisions such as the New York State Social Host law and the 911 Good Samaritan Law, and there will be plenty of information on helpful resources and prevention programs.
