The Growing Problem of E-Cigarettes and ‘Juuling’ at Waimea HS

Parent and guardians.... I'm asking for your help. We are struggling with students vaping at school. The mods are small, easy to conceal, and look like flash drives... making it easy to conceal and difficult for us to catch. Also vaping doesn't have a distinctive odor like regular cigarettes. Please spend some time reading the attached slides and watching the short video that's embedded within and then have a conversation with your son or daughter. If you have any questions or concerns, please call me at school, 338-6800. Thank you.... Mahina Anguay, WHS principal.
