Red Ribbon Week 2023
During the week of October 23-27 campuses across Frenship ISD will celebrate Red Ribbon Week with the goal of educating students and raising awareness on the dangers of drug and substance abuse. This includes lessons for 6-12th graders on the dangers of fentanyl. 
Lessons on fentanyl for middle school through high school students will be based on videos and information provided by Natural High, a drug prevention nonprofit that inspires and empowers youth to find their natural high and develop the skills and courage to live life well.
Fentanyl Awareness & Resources
October is designated as Fentanyl Poisoning Awareness Month to increase awareness of the dangers of fentanyl and potential overdoses. 
Did you know, just one pill can be deadly?
  • Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid that is 50–100 times more potent than morphine, often lethal with as little as 2 milligrams.
  • Over 71,000 Americans died from fentanyl in 2021, an increase of 23 percent from the previous year.
  • Over that same period, Texas saw an 89 percent increase in fentanyl-related fatalities, with provisional data showing 1,672 deaths in 2021 as compared to 883 in 2020.
  • These are steep increases since 2018, when there were 214 fentanyl-related deaths in Texas.
  • Drug traffickers disguise pills that include dangerous fentanyl to look like legitimate prescription drugs, and even candy to target children.
  • Fentanyl is impacting individuals with and without substance use disorders.
