Student SCHIVIRS

In an effort to make sure we are recognizing all our students, we are opening up the opportunity for students to nominate their peers when they are seen living out our Pirate Character Traits in our building.

While we are asking students to nominate their peers, we would also love to have you nominate our students as well.

Action Alert from Northland Coalition

Currently, the Missouri State Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS) is drafting the rules and regulations regarding medical marijuana. Now is our opportunity to provide input on how these restrictions, or lack thereof, will impact our youth and communities. They are hearing volumes of information from the marijuana industry and very little from our side. Please take a minute to compose and send a personal email with your concerns and comments to these decision makers. We provided some suggestions below.


Suggestions for composing a comment to the Medical Marijuana Division of DHSS:


  • Start a new email to: MedicalMarijuanainfo@health.mo.gov. Address your letter to "Mr. Lyndall Fraker"
  • Introduce yourself and share a little about why you care or are concerned about medical marijuana marketing, etc. Be specific to regulatory issues such as those listed below.
  • Copy and paste these recommendations (or write your own suggestions):

"I encourage you to consider the following regulations that would protect our youth and community:

  • require age 21 to purchase, sell, cultivate or be employed in the marijuana industry,
  • impose strict limits on marketing,
  • use a tracking system to limit the volume of marijuana products sold or purchased,
  • require extensive training and qualifications of dispensary staff,
  • require the products to be sold in packaging that mirrors prescription drug packaging with no flashy colors, names, or child friendly images,
  • limit dispensing hours,
  • limit edibles,
  • require product inserts--similar to those that are provided with all other medicines."
  • Sign the letter and provide your contact information.

Email Your Letter To: MedicalMarijuanainfo@health.mo.gov
