Vaping is not exclusive to Okaloosa County students. It is a national issue. In a partnership with the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office and Emerald Coast Crime Stoppers, our middle and high school students are participating in a contest to produce video Public Service Announcements in an effort to decrease and end teen vaping. Thanks to the Okaloosa County School Board’s support, we are in the process of purchasing vape detection devices that will be placed on campuses to help deter students from bringing vapes to school. A letter will be sent home to all parents explaining what the devices do so they can help our cause at home. “Vaping is something that can really impact our students in a negative way and we want to take a pro-active step in having an anti-vape campaign to encourage our students to make healthy choices,” stated Superintendent Marcus Chambers.
