Faced with the rising prominence of heroin and opioid abuse in Hamilton Township, the school district has partnered with the Mercer County Prosecutor’s Office to hold three forums this month on the subject.

Entitled “The Opioid Epidemic: An Open and Frank Town Hall Meeting for Parents & Students,” the events will be hosted by superintendent Scott Rocco and Mercer County Prosecutor Angelo Onofri.

The first meeting is April 9 at Hamilton West, followed by ones April 23 at Steinert and April 25 at Nottingham. Each event begins at 6:30 p.m.
