SAFE Home Pledges!

The SAFE Coalition has begun their annual SAFE Home Pledge program, and this year they are including elementary parents as well. Members of the organization are asking parents to sign a SAFE Home pledge.
The pledge for middle and high school states that the parents will not provide alcohol to minors in their home. It also states that the parents are open to communication with other parents about the alcohol use of their children. For elementary the pledge asks parents to talk to their kids about drugs, alcohol and tobacco use, set rules and take an active role in their lives.

A directory of all parents who have signed a SAFE Home Pledge will be produced and provided to parents after the start of the school year. An updated directory will also be available on the SAFE website at

If you are interested in having a SAFE home and signing a SAFE Home Pledge there are a number of things you can do:
1) Sign the pledge during back-to-school registration
