Frederick Goes Purple
September is National Recovery Month and Frederick County has an initiative called “Frederick Goes Purple” to raise awareness for drug abuse in our county. OHS is using September as well to raise awareness and educate people about drugs and drug abuse. There is a bulletin board on Main Street in the building with some information about “Frederick Goes Purple” and there will be various announcements throughout the month about drug facts and awareness (particularly opioids). As a school we will also be promoting Purple Fridays on 9/13 and 9/21 by encouraging students to wear purple to school those days to show support for this initiative and the awareness month. We hope that you will also help us support this initiative.
Please join the OHS PTSA today!
$20 per membership (student, parent, faculty)
