FOR PARENT

  • Region 10 Safe Party Parent Registry
  • In an effort to dramatically reduce drug use and underage drinking, the coalition has compiled a list of parents who support our efforts and agree to not allow underage drinking or drug use at their homes.  By being on the registry, parents are telling the community that if children gather at their home, they are making a commitment to provide supervision and to not allow any alcohol or drugs.
    If an event is being held at the home of one of the parents on the registry, you can email the parent to confirm the event details and be assured that no alcohol or drugs will be there.
    If you wish to join the registry, please send an email to mccallprevention@gmail.com that says: “My name is _______, and I wish to join the Region 10 Safe Party Parent Registry.  I agree to allow my name and email address to be publicized.”
    The Coalition would like to thank all of the parents that are registered for your continued support!  We are dedicated to helping you make good decisions for your family’s safety and well-being.
