Dear John Jay Middle and High School Families,
Between 2011 and 2015, the U.S. Surgeon General found e-cigarette use among high school students increased by 900 percent, with more teens now using e-cigarettes than traditional tobacco products. – Surgeon General’s Report 2016
Vaping or the use of e-cigarettes among adolescents continues to be a significant concern for all of us. In the report cited above, the Surgeon General refers to high school students. We know that for some, the experimentation begins at an even younger age.
Always wanting to partner with our families in the effort to keep all our students safe, we share the following information:
If you have any questions related to this or any other drug or substance issue, Ms. Kiri Ryan, social worker at JJHS, is available and can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 914-763-7215.
As was the case with cigarette smoking, there will be no single solution that protects our students from the dangers of vaping. With a concerted collective effort, however, we can and will make a difference.
