Parents are the first defense in protecting their teens' from drugs and alcohol
By the time they are seniors, almost 70 percent of high school students will have tried alcohol, half will have taken an illegal drug, nearly 40 percent will have smoked a cigarette, and more than 20 percent will have used a prescription drug for a non-medical purpose. (National Institute on Drug Abuse, 2014.)
Our community is not exempt from these troubling statistics. Recently, it has come to our attention that some of our students may be participating in dangerous activities during the evening away from school that include drinking alcohol and perhaps even driving while intoxicated. Please know that we will investigate incidents that come to our attention. These investigations may lead to disciplinary actions that might include the involvement of the local authorities.
Research shows that the fear of losing their parents’ trust and respect is the greatest deterrent to adolescent drug use. Parents are the front line of defense in protecting their teens’ developing brains from drugs and alcohol, so I encourage you to use the following 9 Practices that can reduce the chances of teen drug or alcohol use:
Maintain a close relationship with your child during the teen years. Encourage them while offering appropriate levels of independence.
Talk honestly with your teens about drugs and alcohol. For talking tips, read our ideas on the back of this page, or go to www.drugfree.org
If you drink, drink responsibly, and don’t use drugs or alcohol to manage your stress. Drinking in excess around your children increases the odds that they will develop alcohol or drug problems.
Lock up or hide your prescription medicines, and pay attention to use of non-prescription medications including cough syrup and mouthwash.
Don’t allow your teen to drink in your home with their friends or with you. Trying to teach teens how to “drink responsibly” has been shown to increase the risk of future substance abuse.
Be aware of certain risk factors that may increase the risk of teen substance abuse. These include a family history of addiction or alcoholism; depression, bi-polar disorder, anxiety or ADHD; a lack of impulse control; or traumatic experiences such as bullying, severe illness or the death of a family member.
Know your teen’s friends, know what they are doing and what is important to them. Trust your gut about their friends, and keep in touch with their parents.
Monitor and supervise your child. Know where they are and who they are with.
Stay connected with school – academics and activities – as a finger on the pulse of your teen’s performance, values, priorities and moods.
Together we can collaborate to ensure that we protect all of our children and adolescents from alcohol and drug use. If you or someone you know needs support with this, please reach out to your site principal so we can coordinate support services.
Thank you, Jose Miguel Kubes, Superintendent

Join us in person for Delhi Unified's Regular Board Meeting on Tuesday, August 9, 2022 at 7:00 pm at the Delhi Educational Park Theater.
Dear Delhi Community,
I acknowledge and affirm the Board of Trustees’ mission to equitably educate the whole child so that every student graduates with the tools to reach their full potential. In doing so, we will bring DUSD to be known as the premier district in all of Merced County. Delhi Unified School District will be known as the diamond in Merced County where every child shall have equitable opportunities and equal access to a quality personalized education in a nurturing and safe environment. Our mission will center around the Delhi ABC’s:
Academics: We will engage and challenge all students in authentic, rigorous, and culturally relevant learning experiences that foster innovation and critical thinking.
Best Place to Work: We will cultivate a premier workforce by prioritizing adult value, learning and innovation.
Culture and Climate: We will foster an active partnership between schools, families, and the community that mutually supports the advancement, success, and well-being of our students.
I personally believe in the promise of equity and apply this belief to my professional life. This includes addressing achievement gaps, which entails establishing a meaningful structure for wraparound support in service of children’s social, emotional, academic, and health outcomes. It also involves establishing and maintaining systems that facilitate personalized approaches to meeting the needs of each individual child, from students with disabilities, to gifted and talented students, to English Language Learners.
I believe in each and every one of the multi-faceted and multi-talented members of the Delhi community, and I am confident that we will continue to build our capacity to support our learning journey with talented and dynamic current and future staff.
Delhi parents, students, teachers and staff:
We LOVE you. We VALUE you. We WANT and NEED you HERE!
