Oct. 4, 2019 – Guilford Parent Academy (GPA) and Guilford County Schools’ Counseling Services are inviting parents to Sandy Hook Promise “Know the Signs” information sessions.

After completing this session, participants will know how to recognize the signs and signals of individuals who may be a threat to themselves and how to connect them with others to avoid social isolation. Parents may choose one of two sessions offered.
