And now an announcement from Student Council and SCIP – The School Community Intervention Program – What are e-cigarettes? They are small electronic devices that heat a substance which turns into small particles in the air that people then inhale. They are also known as vape pens and come in different shapes and sizes. Some look like highlighters, USB drives, and writing utensils. People typically use e-cigarettes to vape nicotine but they can also be used to vape other substances as well. 

For more information visit the Student Council table in the cafeteria during all lunches.
