Please be aware that Blue Mountain School District does not have any affiliation with NCP Folders and/or American Youth Group. The district was notified that this entity is soliciting advertisement money to fund drug awareness folders. Our students do not receive any folders from this company as we handle promoting “Say No To Drugs” in our school handbook and in our curriculum. If you are contacted by this company we recommend that you do not submit any payment or personal information. Attached to this post is an example of what the order form looks like.
