One Pill Can Kill Parent Information Night- Dec. 15th

Dear Rocklin Unified Staff and Families,

The purpose of this message is to share with you an opportunity to attend a Parent Information Night jointly hosted by RUSD and the City of Rocklin to spread awareness about the fentanyl epidemic and how it impacts our youth, especially during holiday breaks.

Nearly two years ago, Zach Didier, a Whitney High School student, lost his life after being approached by a drug dealer that sold him counterfeit prescription pills through a social media platform. Zach’s parents, Chris and Laura Didier, made it their mission to educate others about the risks of purchasing pills that may be counterfeit through social media and the alarming dangers of fentanyl poisoning.

The Didier Family and the Rocklin Unified School District are committed to working together to spread awareness of this danger with the goal of keeping all of our children safe and preventing another unfortunate incident occurring in our community. The Rocklin Unified School District and the City of Rocklin are partnering to host a 1 Pill Can Kill Placer Fentanyl Parent Information Night [Flyer] at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, December 15, 2022 at Whitney High School’s Performing Arts Center. Laura Didier will be joined by Laura Collanton, another parent impacted by fentanyl, the Mayor of Rocklin, the Rocklin Police Department, the Placer County District Attorney’s Office, and members from Wellness Together, Granite Wellness Center, and RUSD to educate attendees of the increase in student drug use during this time of year, and the risks of purchasing drug paraphernalia on the Internet.
