The Vernon ROCKS Coalition presented the 2018-2019 Rockville High School PRIDE survey results to the public on December 5th, 2019 at 6:30 PM at Vernon Center Middle School.
Members of Real Talk discussed the school’s data, focusing on annual and monthly use, Protective Factors, and RHS’s results compared to state and national data.
It was an informative presentation for parents to understand the community’s strengths and where improvement could occur to make The Town of Vernon a better place for youth to grow up in, enabling them to thrive. After the results were shared the Coalition hosted a panel discussion on vaping prevention featuring guest speaker and panelists Barbara Walsh from the CT DPH Tobacco Control Program , the Vernon P.D. School Resources Officer, the Vernon Public School’s primary physician, and a representative from the North Central District Health Department. It was a great turnout and we hope everyone had a good, informative time.
