eCigarettes and Vaping
"Vaping" is the act of inhaling vaporized liquid or aerosol through an electronic cigarette or other device, such as a vape pen. The device heats up via a battery-operated coil, turning the liquid into an aerosol that is inhaled and exhaled. The liquid can contain nicotine, water, flavor, chemicals, and other substances. The health risks associated with vaping are still being investigated, but there is a growing body of evidence to support dangers associated with these devices (National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse).
eCigarettes and other vaping devices are not allowed on District property. District 25 is committed to educating students and families about the risks associated with vaping. There is a common misconception that vapes contain only water and flavoring, thus making them harmless.
