According to drugabuse.gov, "E-cigarettes are popular among teens and are now the most commonly used form of tobacco among youth in the United States." 
 
We thought we would take this opportunity to share a recent article from Child Mind Institute (childmind.org) on teen vaping, as well as links to fact sheets and information sources. You'll find helpful explanations, a frank discussion of the risks, and tips for talking to your kids about vaping.

As parents, teachers, and administrators, we all need to be knowledgeable in areas of concern for our students. Our goal is to equip our students with the tools they need in order to make informed, healthy choices.
