Dear Mount Greylock Parents and Guardians,
E-cigarettes and vaporizers (both frequently referred to as “vapes”) are gaining popularity among young people. At Mount Greylock, we have seen an increase in the number of students bringing these devices to school. Last week , I emailed you an educational brochure about the process and dangers of vaping, along with ideas for starting conversations with your child about the dangers. Here is a recent article from the New York Times with additional suggestions for having successful conversations with your child about vaping’s health consequences. I also want to make it clear that vaping and the possession of vaping paraphernalia are not allowed at Mount Greylock; consequences for violating this school rule start with suspension. As both infractions are considered chemical health violations, there are additional consequences for those involved in athletics and co-curricular activities. Mount Greylock appreciates the effective partnership we have had with parents, and I ask you to help us to educate your children about the health consequences of vaping and to keep vaping out of Mount Greylock. Thank you.
Mary MacDonald, Principal
