East Islip High School held a SADD Awareness Day on April 21, bringing attention to topics such as suicide, drinking and driving, texting and driving, and bullying. Along with the school’s Students Against Destructive Decisions Club, visiting organizations came to participate, including Allstate, Response Hotline, Youth Enrichment Services and the Sunrise Counseling Center, and students had the chance to try on goggles to simulate impairment and add their thumbprints to an “X the TXT” banner. “This event was very worthwhile” said SADD adviser Bridget Lopiccolo. “It is important to have students be able to ask questions and get responses from organizations that are there to help when someone is in crisis. It is our goal at SADD to help educate and promote awareness of the destructive decisions that students may make.”
