Red Ribbon Week – Oct. 23 – 31

Elk Grove Unified recognizes Oct. 23 – Oct. 31 as Red Ribbon Week. This year’s theme, “Drug Free Looks Like Me” is a reminder that everyday Americans across the country make significant daily contributions to their communities by being the best they can be because they live Drug-Free.


EGUSD will continue to make alcohol, tobacco and other drug abuse prevention a high priority and will support a comprehensive research-based plan of action it has already adopted to assist students who are suffering from the effects of alcohol, tobacco and other drug abuse and to make school campuses a safe harbor from drugs.
