WHAT IS THE REFUSE TO USE PROGRAM?
Students pledge to remain free from drugs, alcohol, and tobacco. Students and parents attend substance free educational events. All participating students are eligible for an UNLIMITED SEASON PASS to Stratton Mountain Resort or Grafton Ponds Nordic Center.
- I will refuse to use alcohol, tobacco and any other drugs.
- I will not misuse any over-the-counter or prescription drugs (i.e., diet pills, cold medications, etc.)
- I will support my friends in their choice to refuse to use alcohol, tobacco and other drugs.
- I will behave respectfully and responsibly at RTU events and while using my ski pass.
- I will attend at least five of the scheduled substance-use prevention programs sponsored by Leland and Gray or West River Valley Thrives.
- By joining the Refuse to Use program, I understand that I will voluntarily give my word and honor to this pledge and will follow the guidelines. If I cannot uphold this pledge, then my pass will be terminated.
To help kids succeed, this rural school gets help from unusual sources. Dentists, for example.
Life Changer of the Year Nominee
Ms. DeBisschop is one of those teachers who every student loves. She is committed to social justice, equality and creating a fair and rigorous classroom environment. Ms. DeBisschop makes sure that every student in her class knows that they matter and that they can rely on her for support. She brings modern and challenging texts into the classroom, revitalizing the 11th grade curriculum. She also teaches a co-curricular unit with a social studies teacher. Ms. DeBisschop is so beloved by the students that they dedicated last year's yearbook to her, an honor generally reserved for retiring or much older teachers.
