Dear Parents / Guardians;


We are particularly concerned about the health of some of our middle school students posed by the effects of JUULING or VAPING.  According to information regarding Juuling and vaping by young people, there is a heightened risk of nicotine-dependence and other health concerns.  

There has been quite a bit of news regarding Juuling / vaping  in both the local and national news so this topic is something you may already heard about.   There is good information regarding the effects of Juuling / vaping which can be accessed through the following link- https://www.healthychildren.org/English/health-issues/conditions/tobacco/Pages/Juuling-Get-the-Facts.aspx

We feel that it is important for us to share this information with you as we are starting to see a few occurrences  at school. The health and well-being of all of our students is of great importance and by sharing this information with you, hopefully you can have meaningful conversations with your child(ren) about the effects of Juuling / vaping.

As far as our response at school, it is important for you to know this type of behavior is not allowed at school or at school sponsored activities. If a student is in possession or caught JUULING / VAPING either on campus or at a school activity, the student code of conduct will be enforced.  

Thank you for your attention to this matter.  

Respectfully,


Kipp Petersen Jeff Ganz
