The Vernon Youth Services office at Rockville High School (RHS) works with the RHS Peer Advocate program to sponsor an annual overnight Volleyball Lock-in at RHS. The goal of this event is to provide a safe, substance free weekend event for RHS students. Canned food items are collected from each participant and are donated to the local food pantry. Students form teams of 6-8 and create their own team name and uniforms. They enjoy free food and other entertainment such as Zumba, karaoke and board games throughout the night. Last year (2017), there were 36 teams with over 260 student participants. This means we were able to keep about 32% of the school population safe and substance free on a Friday night!
This year’s event will take place on March 16th from 10pm until 6am. If you’re an RHS student hoping to attend the Volleyball Lock In, look out for sign-ups in school or contact Ms.McTighe for more information!
