Vaping

 

 

Policy Change:
Since the beginning of the 2018-2019 school year, there has been a marked increase in the number of infractions related to possession or use of vapes, Juuls, and e-cigarettes within our school system. These devices are illegal for students to possess or use, are harmful to their health, and are a distraction to the learning environment. In order to assist students in understanding the seriousness of these devices, our policy regarding consequences for possession and use of vapes, juuls, e-cigarettes, and related paraphernalia have been revised.

 

Beginning May 1, 2019, Lincoln County Schools have decided

 

that the following consequences will be put in place.

 

There will be a zero- tolerance policy in effect regarding these devices.

 

Consequence One/ 1st Offense


The student will receive one-three (1-3) days OSS. (ES/MS)


Consequence Two/ 2nd Offense


The student will receive three-five (3-5) days OSS. (ES/MS)


Consequence Three/ 3rd Offense
The student will receive six-ten (6-10) days OSS. (ES/MS)

 

 

Please talk to your child about the dangers of vaping and the use of e-cigarettes, vapes, and Juuls.

It is important that students understand the health risks that accompany their use.

We appreciate your partnership as we work to focus our students on making healthy choices and

growing academically.
