Hidden In Plain Sight - StartSnap Content

Hidden in Plain Sight allows parents a unique interactive opportunity to look into a teen’s mock bedroom. The room is full of common household items that could be used to hide or disguise drug, alcohol, tobacco use or other “risky” behaviors. Usually we set this up in the school during Open Houses, but during COVID we have created a virtual version that you can do at home.

Please take the time to talk to your teen about the items you see – use this as a way to launch a conversation about substance use among peers. 

As parents, we are the number one tool against substance use!
