Red Ribbon Week

October 23 marks the beginning of red ribbon week at Arroyo high school. This is a time where all students and staff are to focus on the healthy choices and habits they could make rather than the unhealthy choice of using tobacco, drugs, and alcohol. We need your help ensuring that Dons are drug free!

        These 3 short videos were sent out by the Alameda County Office of Education on behalf of TUPE, Tobacco Use Prevention Education. We are hoping some of you may find the time to show them and open up a conversation about addiction. The 'Denoble' video has a video game theme that students really seemed to respond to in years prior. The 'Understanding Addiction' video explains why YOUTH are particularly vulnerable to becoming addicts.
