Parents of Socorro, This letter is a call to action to all of us. This last week we saw our second occurrence of fentanyl at our high school. Students have said it isn’t being sold there but I fear it is just a matter of time. We have tried to be a diligent as possible to stop the drugs in our schools but I’m worried that if we don’t get help from our community we will be fighting a losing battle. Most of our students aren’t involved in buying or using drugs. I’ve been told that almost every student knows who is doing/selling drugs and can point them out. These students won’t tell adults about the offenders because they feel that it isn’t their business or because they fear being labeled a snitch. We need families to talk to their students to let them know that when they inform the adults about these users/sellers they might be saving lives. Parents if you notice something is “off” with your student, don’t let it pass. Investigate to see what is going on in their life. Many parents in American now are wishing they would have pressed the issue with their students when they noticed something was amiss. When their students subsequently overdosed it was too late. Please know that our local law enforcement is helping us with SRO coverage at our middle and high school and we appreciate it. They are telling us that they arrest the same dealers over and over again. We need to demand a change in the way things are being done in this state. We need to hold the people who are allowing these dealers back on the streets accountable for our kids' sakes. Please make calls and raise some cain about this issue. We need your help. In the next few weeks we will be putting out information about a new program called “Dads on Patrol”. We will be asking for dads in our community to come volunteer to help visit our hallways daily to provide more parent involvement in our schools. We hope some of you can help us out with this endeavor. Thank You, Ron Hendrix Superintendent
