Friendswood ISD, in partnership with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and the Bay
Area Alliance, is inviting parents of FISD students to attend an informational summit relating to
fentanyl poisoning on Wednesday, January 25 at 6:30pm at the Friendswood Junior High
Auditorium, 1000 Manison Parkway, Friendswood, TX 77546. A complimentary dinner will be
served at 6pm for those who register by Friday, January 20.
Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid that has been linked to a surge of poisonings and overdoses
throughout the United States. According to the DEA’s website, fentanyl is the “single deadliest
drug threat” in the country.
The summit aims to empower parents with information to best protect their children.
Additionally, Narcan, a medication that quickly reverses an overdose related to opioids, will be
available to interested families.
