OSSINING, N.Y. -- The Ossining School District and the Ossining Communities That Care are set to host family resource workshops known as "Family Matters."

The free event is for parents and guardians of students in grades five through twelve at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 24 at Anne M. Dorner Middle School in Ossining, according to a press release.

The event promises to include two small-group sessions presented in English and Spanish and a "choice of workshops from among topics that include bullying, local policing of underage drinking, effective parent-teen communication techniques, and what Ossining residents can do to check the growth of prescription drug abuse," according to the release.

Workshop presenters are also set to include some of the district's student counselors and staff members and representatives of the Ossining Police Department, according to the release.

A dinner-and-dialogue session between workshops "will give parents a chance to exchange ideas and perspective with their peers on the issues of drug and alcohol use by Ossining's youth," according to the release.

To register, residents can visit the Ossining School District's website or the Ossining Communities That Care website .
