Port Aransas police and schools will warn students about the dangers of drugs during Red Ribbon Week.

This year, Red Ribbon Week will be celebrated at Port Aransas ISD from Oct. 21 to Oct. 25, according to Brett Boyer, the district’s school resource officer.

Red Ribbon Week is a national campaign that educates youth and encourages participation in drug prevention, according to the National Red Ribbon Week Campaign’s website.

During Red Ribbon Week at PAISD, students can participate in daily themes, Boyer said.

On Monday, Oct. 21, students are being asked to dress in country-western attire for “Give Drugs the Boot” day. Tuesday will be disco day for “Stay Groovy, Don’t Do Drugs,” while Wednesday students can dress in their favorite rock and roll outfits to celebrate “Keep Rockin’ a Drug Free Life.” On Thursday, students are being asked to dress like pop stars for “Too Cool to do Drugs” day. Finally, on Friday, students can dress like their favorite artists to celebrate “Tune Out Drugs.”
