Corte Madera School in Portola Valley will hold a "Drug and Alcohol Awareness" seminar on Wednesday, May 9, from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the school's multi-use room. Speakers are Sgt. Leo Capovilla from the San Mateo County Narcotics Task Force and Deputy Marcus Gathright from the San Mateo County Sheriffâ€™s Office. Principal Joel Willen will also participate.
Speakers will show confiscated drugs and ever-changing drug paraphernalia. They will explain what parents should look for -- sights, sounds, smells and attitudes -- and tell about resources available to families.
There will be a discussion on the responsibility of schools in drug intervention.
For more information, call parent volunteer Amber Ramies at 823-9994.
