Beginning October 23, HCISD starts its Red Ribbon Week (RRW) celebration, which is dedicated to promoting a drug-free lifestyle to students, their families, and the community.

The celebration is part of the oldest and largest drug prevention campaign in the country. Each year, the week has a different theme, and the slogan for this year was “Your Future Is Key, So Stay Drug Free.”
