(Hesperia)– Hesperia USD adopted a resolution proclaiming October 23 – 31, 2017 Red Ribbon Week.
The National Red Ribbon Celebration has been established by the National Family Partnership (NFP) to help create awareness of the drug problems facing every community, to develop parent and community teams to combat illegal drugs, and to promote healthy, drug-free lifestyles for America’s youth. Business, government, law enforcement, schools, religious institutions, service organizations, youth, medical, senior citizens, military, sports teams, and individuals will demonstrate their commitment to a healthy, drug-free lifestyle by wearing and displaying red ribbons during this campaign.
The Hesperia Unified School District encourages all citizens to pledge:
“NO USE OF ILLEGAL DRUGS AND NO ILLEGAL USE OF LEGAL DRUGS!”
