On October 11, parents/guardians have an opportunity to walk in the shoe of their student(s) during Back to School Night, an evening to hear about the classes directly from teachers and learn how taxing it can be to travel the building to various classes. It is always important for us to understand how our students spend much of their days. We will also have a speaker prior to the start of the night. Please join us. We look forward to seeing to see everyone.
5:30-6:30 pm: Speaker about e-cigarettes and vaping. Held in the BHS Auditorium.
The e-cigarette craze has driven the largest uptick in teen nicotine use in decades after years of driving cigarette smoking rates to record lows. Teens who would have never smoked cigarettes happily are inhaling fruity flavors, sometimes without realizing it is packed with nicotine, a dangerously addictive substance. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) cautions that nicotine exposure can harm adolescents' brain development.
In response, the FDA has threatened to pull e-cigarettes from shelves if manufacturers do not control teen use. It’s the first real government crackdown to stem a burgeoning health crisis for our children.
Our Back to School Night speaker will address the use of e-cigs and vaping among teens.
6:45-8:45 pm: Parents/guardians visit classrooms.
