WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Junior and Senior High School stress will be the main focus of an informational session the West Lafayette Junior Senior High School Parents Council will be hosting next week.
The meeting will help parents recognize the symptoms of stress and anxiety caused by school, as well as touching on the subjects of substance abuse and firearm safety in the home.
Dr. Pam McCombs from Valley Oaks Health, Sgt. Troy Greene and Lt. Jon Eager of the West Lafayette Police Department, and Jennifer Haan of Be SMART will all be present to give short presentations to the parents in attendance.
Sgt. Troy Greene says parents should come to the meeting with an open mind ready to learn from the experts speaking about how to help their children.
“We all can look things up on the internet trying to find out some information, but if you have some experts out there or some people who have dealt with this in the past, it kind of helps out.”
The meeting will start at 7:00 PM on Tuesday, March 5th in the West Lafayette Junior Senior High School Auditorium. The program is free and open to the public.
