Research by the Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse (CASA) has shown that despite common misconceptions, parents are the number one influence concerning their child’s attitude about alcohol and other drug use.
In an effort to present a united front, Trinity is requiring all parents of freshmen and of transfer students to attend a mandatory meeting. Trinity’s policies on alcohol and drugs will be discussed. Furthermore, staff from The Morton Center will be on hand to train all parents about signs and symptoms concerning adolescent drug use.
If your child’s last name begins with A through L, you are asked to attend a mandatory meeting at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, August 30 in the Convocation Hall of the Communication Arts Center. If your son’s last name begins with M through Z, your mandatory session will be at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, September 6 in Convocation Hall. When you enter Convocation Hall, you will receive a packet with your son’s last name. We will use this system to determine attendance.
We have scheduled students by their last names because space is limited. If at all possible, please try to attend on the date you’ve been assigned.
