Tobacco Products

E-Cigarettes and Similar Products

While there are some legal uses of e-cigarettes and vapes there is a growing body of evidence that they are increasingly being used by underage students for the consumption of illegal substances such as marijuana and substances that can be crushed and dissolved into vape juice. For this reason the penalties for having e-cigarettes and vapes are more than for having traditional cigarettes. These devices and materials involved with using them are considered by the school to be paraphernalia and are in the same category as marijuana. Penalties for Vaping First offense: 3 day suspension and 5 counseling sessions with Student Assistance Program counselor. Second offense: 5 day suspension and 5 counseling sessions with Student Assistance Program counselor and a re-entry meeting with the principal. Third offense and beyond: 10 day suspension and 5 counseling sessions with Student Assistance Program counselor and a re-entry meeting with the principal. NOTE: Any student found in a group where one person is vaping will also be suspended for vaping.
