Millbrook Magnet High School has recently announced a new policy regarding vaping in school. The message was broadcast across the school in the afternoon announcements and sent out in the Principal’s weekly message. The message addressed the nation’s growing concern about the amount of teens who have started vaping.
Sophia Grace, a senior at Millbrook said “I think the vaping in the Millbrook bathrooms causes significant inconveniences for those just trying to use the restroom and go about their day. I hope the new policy limits the amount of vaping that I and my classmates run into while simply trying to use the bathroom.”
Since a large number of students end up getting caught vaping in the bathroom there have been many instances where the fire alarm has gone off due to the smoke from the vape. Every time there is a false alarm the Fire Department charges the school a fee, which adds up throughout the year. The new policy stated “A multi-day suspension can be expected, as well as a $100 fee on their student account” and “All fees assessed to a student must be paid before they are allowed to walk across the graduation stage.”
Not only does the message address the new policy, but it also expresses its concern for said students, “If you believe that your high schooler suffers from a vaping addiction, PLEASE intervene on their behalf.” Millbrook not only cares about the fees vaping causes but also its students and their health.
