NOPE Task Force from Pinellas County, in partnership with the Pinellas Sheriff’s Office, visited our campus to help educate our students and parents about the significance of the Opioid Drug Epidemic declared by our Governor Rick Scott and the growing threat facing our communities. NOPE was founded in 2010 by Mark and Laurie Serra following the loss of their oldest son Matthew to a prescription drug overdose. Click for additional information about the organization NOPE that will clarify the purpose and mission for this presentation. The Office of Catholic Schools for the Diocese of St. Petersburg arranged for this presentation from NOPE to all Principals to encourage diligent efforts to share information with parents and students.
