Paris ISD Announces Red Ribbon Week Activities
Red Ribbon Week is a nationally recognized campaign that brings millions of people together to raise awareness on alcohol, tobacco and other drug abuse and violence prevention, early prevention and treatment services.
Paris Independent School District will observe Red Ribbon Week Oct. 27 through Oct. 31, 2014. Talk to your child about drugs today, and help them pin on a red ribbon each day to demonstrate your commitment to supporting a drug-free lifestyle. Surveys show that children whose parents warn them about the dangers of alcohol and other drugs are less likely to use them. For more information, contact your school counselor today.

Quick Tip is a support system that allows students to communicate with school administrators. While the district already has many programs to help students deal with challenges such as bullying behaviors, stress, peer pressure, and family problems, Quick Tip helps break the code of silence often experienced by students because it allows them to report concerns to administrators anonymously.
IMPORTANT NOTE: This is not a crisis line. In cases of emergency, the site will direct students to call 911!
