    • Education in counseling services, student assemblies, health and prevention activities
    • Teachers and administrators are on high alert for e-cigarette products such as JUULs
    • Discipline is combined with a PBIS and health component
    • Communication with families and staff
    •  Enforcing our policy and the law

If a student possesses or uses an illegal substance in conjunction with vaping or vaping paraphernalia, a referral will be made to local law enforcement.
