Hidden in Plain Sight

Stanardsville, VA, January 9, 2020

Greene County Public Schools, the Greene County Office of Emergency Services, and the Public Safety Foundation of Greene County have collaborated to bring “Hidden in Plain Sight” to the Performing Arts Center at William Monroe High School on January 15, 2020 at 6pm. 

“Hidden in Plain Sight” is a presentation designed for parents and guardians to help raise awareness of how young people use common household items to hide drug, alcohol, and vaping paraphernalia. Prior to the formal presentation at 7pm, parents and guardians will have an opportunity, starting at 6pm, to explore a staged bedroom in order to see if they can identify the items which a child would use to hide vaping, drugs, and alcohol products.  At 7pm, a formal presentation led by Master Police Officer Michael Grant from the Culpeper Police Department, will identify the various items used by children to conceal items in their rooms. These items are usually “Hidden in Plain Sight.” 

Children are not permitted to attend this presentation but there will be childcare available in the WMHS cafeteria and media center.

Additionally, dinner will be provided to all who attend. 

We look forward to an informational event that benefits the families of Greene County.
