The letter goes on to say that the vaping devices were altered with fentanyl or heroin by these drugs being injected into the vaping liquid.
Also, the letter states the schools are there to help students who feel they are “addicted” to these vaping devices. The school has said they will arrange for the student to meet confidentially with a school-based drug and alcohol counselor. There will be no consequence assigned to the student.
They are also asking all parents to speak to their children about the danger and the risks that come with these types of vaping products.
