Mount Greylock always wants to partner with families to keep students physically and emotionally healthy. One of our current challenges is increased experimentation with vape pens and e-cigarettes by students. Middle school as well as high school students have been caught with these devices. As many adults know, these devices allow users to inhale substances laden with high percentages of nicotine, THC and other chemicals. As potentially dangerous and addictive as using them can be, the devices themselves are also insidious. It is simply harder to detect them being used as they do not produce the odors or visual evidence that tobacco or marijuana smoke would. We need your help to keep these devices away from students and out of school. Please talk to your children about their dangers. We have attached a brochure that will help families understand what vaping is and provides some strategies for addressing vaping with young people. As always, we are grateful for your support and cooperation.
