With the tragic deaths of three students in our neighboring school districts of Issaquah and Seattle from the deadly opioid fentanyl, the Bellevue School District is hosting two community information sessions to help our community respond.
The information sessions – held with our partners the Bellevue Police Department and Youth Eastside Services – will allow parents, students, and community members to learn what is being done to protect our children and in turn what actions we can all take.
Information Session Dates:
- Tuesday, Oct. 22, 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.: Sammamish High School Performing Arts Center, 100 140th Ave SE, Bellevue, WA 98005
- Wednesday, Oct. 30, 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.: Bellevue High School Performing Arts Center, 10416 SE Wolverine Way, Bellevue, WA 98004
