The district’s IDEA Coalition Task Force is offering a free, adults-only program at Islip Middle School on March 8, presented by nationally acclaimed prevention expert and police sergeant Timothy Shoemaker. The program, “High-Ding in Plain Sight,” begins at 7p.m. and will provide expert instruction and motivational elements to enlighten, inspire, and empower families in the community.
Shoemaker’s presentation will include more than 100 contemporary, hands-on displays highlighting drug placebos, modern paraphernalia, concealment devices and drug-test countermeasures. Shoemaker will also address the growing use of synthetics and edible drugs, as well as e-cigarettes and vape pens. A question-and-answer period will allow attendees to learn more about specific concerns.
