PARENT WARNING:  WATCH FOR HOOKAH PENS, CIGARETTES AND OTHER ELECTRONIC VAPOR SMOKING DEVICES, THEY ARE AGAINST SCHOOL RULES

Policy File: JFCG

Tobacco Use by Students

Smoking and chewing of tobacco products by students while in school, or under the school’s jurisdiction during an activity, or while participating in or attending a school-sponsored event is prohibited. 

 

Definition of smoking: 

“Smoking” means the burning of, inhaling from, exhaling the smoke from, or the possession of a lighted cigar, cigarette, pipe, hookah pen, or any other matter that can be smoked, including the use of smokeless tobacco and snuff, or the inhaling or exhaling of smoke or vapor from an electronic smoking device.

For decades we have warned our students about the dangers of smoking, but there’s a new trend attracting kids and it has the potential to be just as addictive.  Hookah pens (electronic hookah sticks), e-cigarettes, and other electronic vapor smoking devices are being sold in many gas stations and small businesses all over the country.  They can also be purchased on the internet.  The selling of the pens to anyone under 18 is prohibited.

Hookah pens were put on the market in the last several years and are just another version of e-cigarettes that may, or may not have nicotine in them.  They are about the size of a student’s pen.  The pens come in a variety of fruity flavors, are offered in an array of colors and are an experience very much like smoking.    

Burlington Public Schools would like to make sure that students and parents are aware of the risks of using the devices.  Additionally, Burlington Public Schools are not the place for these pens, regardless of whether they do, or do not contain nicotine.
