Welcome to LSIS Digital Prevention Education

Dear Parents and Students:

Thank you for visiting our Living Skills in the Schools Digital Education page. We usually deliver our programming across schools in Palm Beach County throughout the year.

While schools were closed, we explored new ways to reach students and families with this vital information; because school is now at home.

As we look ahead to the upcoming start of school, and all the uncertainty that surrounds it, one thing remains certain, whether LSIS is with you in the classroom or through distance learning, our mission remains the same to build each child’s resistance to substance abuse, through age-appropriate education, reassurance, understanding, peer support, and access to help.

We offer this content to students and families to help them work together to predict, protect, and prevent drug-related harm in middle and high school students.
