Franklin ISD, like many other school districts, has seen a recent increase in student vaping. The numerous negative effects of vaping warrant all of us at Franklin ISD to take the issue very seriously. Vaping is not only against school policy; it is also dangerous for a person’s health. Unfortunately, there is varying information and misunderstanding involving vaping and electronic cigarettes in circulation. We hope to inform you on the issue and to share some resources to help you separate fact from fiction.
Much like other tobacco and nicotine products, stores cannot sell vaping items to anyone under the age of 18; however, students can easily purchase these products online. Franklin ISD remains vigilant on this issue; consequently, we hope this letter has been informative and helpful. The goal of the school district is to partner with our parents to best support all students in making positive decisions. Please consider talking to your child about the dangers of electronic cigarettes and vaping.
