Lee Co. students say "boo" to drugs

By Jennifer Emert - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  Students at Lee County Primary School learned how to say no to drugs while getting some exercise in the process.

The school held their "Say Boo to Drugs" program outside Friday. Students learned how to bounce away from drugs and how to follow a drug free path during their Physical education and Art and music periods. Educators say its never too early to start talking to students about the dangers of drugs.

"These kids have older brothers and sisters and they live a little bit different life than we probably did when we were young. They're exposed to a lot more at younger ages," said Debbie DeVane, Lee County Primary Assistant Principal.

Lee County has sponsored the program with the Sheriff's office since 1990. Friday's program was part of Lee County's Red Ribbon Week.
