How to Survive and Enjoy Prom Season

Tuesday, April 30 from 7:30-9:00 - Place TBD

This event is open to parents of all grades.

We will be going over key logistics for Prom Night (Pictures? Bus times?) as well as sharing tips and strategies for handling last minute changes in Post Prom plans. 

This is an opportunity to brainstorm with other parents about how to handle the myriad issues that come up around Prom.  You’ll leave the cafe with a Plan B sheet, a list of questions to ask your students and other parents, and the realization that we are all in this together.

If you are a senior parent or guardian, we encourage you to come to this meeting and share your experience  with other parents. Your insight will be much appreciated by the parents and guardians of younger students!

Drug Story Theater

Tuesday, May 21st, at 7pm - LSRHS Auditorium

Lead by Psychiatrist Dr. Joseph Shrand, teens in the early stages of recovery from drugs and alcohol, are taught improvisational theater, and to help craft their own unique stories into a play about their seduction of, addiction to, and recovery from drugs and alcohol. 

The play is presented to middle, high school and college audiences in a way that  “the treatment of one becomes the prevention of many.” 

At the end of the performance,  Dr. Shrand will talk about the neuroscience of addiction and how it specifically affects the adolescent brain.  A  Q&A  between Dr. Shrand, the audience, and the teen-actors will follow up, where the teen-actors will have the opportunity to answer questions about their lived experiences and about different ways to open the conversation between teens and adults.


This is a highly well reviewed program and usually hard to book! We are very fortunate to have them visit our school.

This program is brought to LSRHS by the DA office, the Sudbury Health Department and Community Connections.
