Red Ribbon Week is a prevention awareness campaign usually observed annually in October across the United States. At the North Shore Schools, October 23-October 31, has been devoted to Red Ribbon Week to help students further gain prevention awareness against alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs. Throughout the District, each of our five schools will be participating in different activities and events as part of Red Ribbon Week.
