Substance Abuse and Prevention

The Guidance Abuse Prevention Tip Line allows callers to leave an anonymous voice mail message regarding substance abuse concerns related to drug activity or concerns regarding a student's use of drugs. If you have a concern about a student or a friend, and you are hesitant to tell someone, the Guidance Abuse Prevention Tip Line may be your opportunity to intervene and your opportunity to save a friend's life. Your voice mail will be directed to the appropriate school personnel in order to address the concern. Please call between the hours of 6 p.m. and 6 a.m. at 652-7301 Ext. 146.
The Guidance Abuse Prevention Tip Line is not an emergency number. If you need to speak directly to a school administrator or counselor, you are encouraged to contact the Guidance Office at 652-7301 Ext. 146 between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.
