North Country Road Middle School students recently participated in a two-part presentation on the dangers of drug and alcohol abuse.

The following day the students were joined by residents of the Outreach house who shared their personal testimonials and troubled pasts.

How about SCPD go undercover & bust all the kids dealing various illegal & prescription drugs ? It's infiltrated NCRS as well as the miller place high school Drugs are so prevalent it's insane . A speech is nice but how about some actual law enforcement & the random occasional drug sniffing dog which would probably scare over half of the jr. thugs dealing & using this stuff as well as their derelict parents
