Healthy Lamoille Valley Breakfast and Action Planning: Tobacco/Nicotine/Vape Prevention
On September 12th, some PA students participated in a morning session of action planning to prevent and reduce youth substance use and increase the overall health and well-being of our youth. Students looked into the local conditions and root causes of youth and young adult tobacco/nicotine/vape use and identified strategies to prevent first use and support treatment and cession.
Back at PA, as the fall weather starts to move in, students are beginning to embrace their daily routine. This week will complete our auto flex scheduling so that next week students can utilize the time according to their academic needs and hopefully begin participating in some of our Clubs. We are looking forward to seeing how students will add their personal flare to our annual events like the Bonfire and Haunted High.
In other positive news, we have had an amazing positive response from our students regarding our new tardy policy and cell phone expectations. If you are supporting this at home, we thank you!
