The SAFE Coalition’s annual SAFE Home Pledge program is underway. Members of the coalition are asking parents to sign a SAFE Home pledge. 

The pledge for middle and high school parents states that they 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 parents the pledge asks them to talk to their kids about drugs, alcohol and tobacco use, set rules and take an active role in their lives.

Directories will not be mailed to parents this year; they will only be available online.  A directory of all parents who have signed a SAFE Home Pledge will be available on the SAFE website at  It will also be emailed to all of the parents who sign a SAFE Home Pledge.  Information on how to access the pledges will be mailed in October.

If you are interested in having a SAFE home and signing a SAFE Home Pledge there are a number of things you can do:
