PAC Announcements

  • PAC meeting, Library, 7:30 pm, Tuesday April 14th 

    Whatever the age of your student, April’s PAC meeting is a don’t-miss: “Handling drug and alcohol use in our teens.” We have lined up a terrific panel of speakers who will engage with parents in a free-ranging discussion.   They are:

    ·         Sandy Barrett

    Sandy Barrett has been an ER nurse at Sibley Hospital since 2011.  She treats many young people for alcohol intoxication and/or alcohol-related accidents .  She also sees a steady stream of long-term alcoholics - most of whom started drinking as teenagers.  Sandy has also worked for APS, in Nottingham Elementary's clinic.  She is the mother of 3 teens, all of whom attend Arlington public schools.   

    ·         Kate McCauley

    Kate McCauley, a licensed social worker, has been working with teens and their parents for over 25 years and has provided alcohol and drug prevention and education programs for over a decade. She is a therapist in private practice in Arlington, and her Center for Parents and Teens aims to strengthen the important parent/teen bonds of communication and support. 

     ·         Jim Toumey

    Corporal Toumey is with the Arlington County Police Department.  He is very familiar with alcohol and drug use among youth, as well as community prevention efforts. Jim was the Student Resource Officer  at Yorktown High School for several years and is an active member of Arlington’s READY Coalition. (READY stands for Reduce or Eliminate Alcohol & Drug Use by Youth.)

    ·         Laura Saul Edwards

    Laura, our own PAC co-chair, will discuss the experience of her family and her now-college-age daughter with Second Chance, a 3-day prevention and education program for Arlington middle and high schoolers who are caught for the first time in possession or under the influence of alcohol or illegal drugs.
