Important Information on Vaping 

As educators, we are always looking to expand our knowledge on topics that impact the well-being of our students. Recently, CNN, among many others, reported that the new fad amongst our youth, vaping, has caused severe illnesses and deaths. Click on the following link to read about the latest vape-related death.

According to the Center on Addiction, vaping is the act of inhaling and exhaling aerosol, often referred to as vapor, which is produced by an e-cigarette or similar device. E-cigarettes do not produce tobacco smoke, but rather an aerosol, often mistaken for water vapor, that actually consists of fine particles.

 

We recognize that this is a national issue and educating our students on the dangers is the best way to curb usage. Last year during school, students participated in a lesson about the dangers of vaping. You can view the presentation that was given to students here. Additionally, vaping is a topic covered in all health classes.

 

Vaping devices can be challenging to identify because often times they look like a variety of tools students use in school.  E-cigarettes can look like large fountain pens or can even resemble small USB chargers. Recently, vaping devices even resemble smartwatches.   (sample images attached).

 

In an effort to continue improving the culture and climate of our school, we want to send communication to our parents regarding national trending topics. It is important that we offer support to both you, as parents, and our students to continue to make East Leyden the powerful and positive school community it is.  For more information on vaping or how to talk to your child, view these resources.
