During the Rogers High School open house on Wednesday, Oct. 11 an interactive demonstration called “Hidden in Plain Sight” will be presented at 5 p.m. to parents and guardians which allows adults to explore a teenager’s mock bedroom. As part of the program, prevention specialists will guide attendees to be able to recognize and identify drug paraphernalia, hiding places, lingo, signs and symptoms that may indicate alcohol or drug use or other risky behaviors. This knowledge can be invaluable for adults to be proactive in helping community youth.
