Glen Rock High School/Middle School Hosts Screening of “Out of Reach”, a Short Film about Prescription Drug Abuse Created by a Teen Filmmaker
Glen Rock High School/Middle School will hold a special screening of “Out of Reach”, a short documentary about medicine abuse created by teen filmmaker, at 7:00 PM on Monday, October 6th in the Glen Rock High School/Middle School Media Center.
Dallas native and high school student Cyrus Stowe was selected by entertainment company Genart and Partnership for Drug-Free Kids to turn his entry into a short documentary with the help of director Tucker Capps (of A&E’s “Intervention”). The short documentary, entitled “Out of Reach,” captures the issue of teen prescription drug abuse as it exists in Cyrus’ world, and is a reflection of the issue of teen medicine abuse across the country.
“My goal was to raise awareness about just how many teens are abusing medicine. Until I started talking to my friends and making this film, I didn’t know the true scope of the problem, so I can’t imagine many parents understand either,” said Stowe. “I also have a personal connection to the issue, and making this film was truly a life-changing journey. I made self-discoveries during this process and am hopeful that it will help others will open their eyes to medicine abuse in the way it has for me.”
The screening will be followed by a short presentation by Heather Nover, Glen Rock School District’s SAC, and will focus on ways to keep your family safe from medicine abuse. There will be time allotted for a Q&A session.
This presentation has been rated as appropriate for parents – not teens. Please do not bring your children to this screening. Click here for a flyer about this presentation.

Harassment, Intimidation and Bullying
There is relatively new legislation regarding Harassment, Intimidation and Bullying (HIB). Our district has always taken student misconduct seriously, in all forms, and will continue to do so. We support the goals of the law and will fully implement its requirements. The legislation requires reporting of suspected HIB, investigation and determination of whether the behavior is HIB or not. It defines specific reporting and follow-up activities. Harassment, intimidation or bullying means any gesture, written, verbal or physical act, or technological threat whether it be a single incident or a series of incidents that takes place on school property, at any school sponsored function, going to and/or from school, or off school grounds that substantially disrupts or interferes with the orderly operation of the school or the rights of other pupils.
The district policy and contact information for the Anti-Bullying Coordinator is available on the district website. The High School Anti-Bullying Specialist is Mr. Bill Crispino.
