Start Talking!

Distart talkingd you know that children of parents who talk to their teens are 50% less likely to use drugs?

An effort is underway across Ohio to prevent drug use among Ohio’s most vulnerable citizens – our children. Governor John R. Kasich and First Lady Karen W. Kasich have launched Start Talking! to give parents, guardians, educators and community leaders the tools to start the conversation with Ohio’s youth about the importance of living healthy, drug-free lives.

A majority of substance-free adolescents credit their parents for the decision not to use illegal substances. Likewise, teachers and other authority figures can have a similar influence on youth and their decision-making.

Parents, mentors and peers can make a difference just by talking to the young people in their lives about drug use. Please Start Talking! 

For more resources, go to



Reminder/Information regarding upcoming dates/events in the NLSD:

alert1. NO SCHOOL on Monday, January 15th, as we observe Martin  Luther King Jr. Day.

2. A 2 hour delay on Tuesday, January 16th due to staff training. In an effort to better support our students and their families, our entire staff will be trained in conjunction with Nation Wide Children's Hospital regarding their SOS (Signs of Suicide) program. We hope this will help all staff be better prepared to help students who may be in "Crisis".
