Big Sandy Schools is participating in Red Ribbon Week this week, an annual event where schools work to inform students of the dangers of drug and alcohol abuse. Dianna Keane, the school counselor, is organizing this year’s activities. She explained, “Red Ribbon Week would be a week that we use to help students give them facts and awareness about drugs and alcohol and how that it can affect them. We use it as a way to create awareness, but then also provide some tools to help kids. Things like refusal skills, emotional regulation tools, the facts, so that they’re armed with them.”
