To help parents safeguard their children, the Oconomowoc Area School District is hosting “Playgrounds to Pills … Prevention Begins with Parents,” a presentation planned from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Sept. 29 at the Oconomowoc Arts Center.

This is the fourth in the Stairway to Heroin series, and it is geared for parents of younger students.
