CVUSD Celebrates Red Ribbon Week
October 23 through October 31, 2018 is Red Ribbon Week. At the Tuesday, October 2, 2018 regularly scheduled Board of Education Meeting for the Conejo Valley Unified School District, the Board of Education voted to approve Resolution #18/19-02 - Red Ribbon Week Proclamation.
Californians launched the Red Ribbon campaign in 1985 for Drug Free Youth. The purpose of the campaign is to draw attention to the need to eliminate the demand for illegal drugs. Red Ribbon Week also provides an opportunity to discuss drug-free choices and positively model for students by encouraging parents, staff, and students to wear symbolic red ribbons.
CVUSD schools are proud to recognize Red Ribbon Week, and promote healthy lifestyles for students with special events, assemblies, and awareness raising projects.
Read the official proclamation below:
