Oneida County Health Department to host Street Smarts education night

A new program will be added to the Rhinelander High School freshman health class curriculum: Street Smarts.

Street Smarts is a program designed to help youth practice safer sex, understand the side effects of drugs and alcohol, get in touch with their feelings, get rid of thoughts that are self-defeating, feel confident in their ability to act safe, and know where to go when they are in trouble, according to a health department press release.

Before the program begins, the health department will host a free parent/guardian education night to answer any questions parents, guardians, or community members might have about the new program. This session is scheduled for Tuesday, Aug. 22 from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. in the Rhinelander High School library.

"At this time we will also showcase a 'Teen Bedroom' allowing attendees to travel through our mock bedroom and learn more about the drugs and alcohol your teen may be hiding in plain sight," the release states.
