EAC to feature the “In Plain Sight” display on February 7

The Southern Illinois Substance Abuse Alliance community anti-drug coalition (SISAA) is bringing the “In Plain Sight” display to Evansville Attendance Center School on Thursday, Feb. 7. The display will be ready at 3:30 p.m. and continue throughout the evening during parent teacher conferences and a volleyball game.

This display has become a popular resource for parents of teenage children in many communities. Michelle Bertinetti, of the Gateway Foundation, sets up a mock, teenage room and shows parents where their child could be hiding drugs in plain sight. The “Hidden in Plain Sight” room provides parents with clues from a teen’s bedroom to help them determine whether their child might be experimenting with or using drugs or alcohol. Room décor, hidden compartments and items to conceal drug use are located throughout the room.
