Welcome to our Walton High School Community!
CAN YOU SPOT THE POT?
C.O.P.E. HOUSE TOURS at WALTON
For Parent and Guardians combat teen substance abuse!
Tuesday, October 30th
Walton High School Front Parking Lot
As parents, we go the extra mile to ensure our students attend the best schools and stay active in extracurricular activities. But our job doesn’t stop there, and we must stay vigilant to ensure our children never get involved with substance abuse. Watch the attached, and you will see how easy it is for teens and young adults to hide pills and pot.
Walton PTSA, Cobb County and The Zone are offering parents and guardian a truly unique opportunity that will only take 15 minutes of your time. The Cobb County's mobile classroom called the C.O.P.E. House (Cobb Overdose Prevention Effort), will be at Walton High School. The house is designed to mirror a teenager’s bedroom, bathroom and closet. With a guided tour, you will learn about warning signs of drug use and addiction. More than 50 items (clues) are on display within the area. We ask that no one under the age of 18 or attending high school be permitted inside.
