What do vaping devices look like?

Dear Brenham ISD Parents and Guardians, 


More than ever, today’s youth are facing opportunities to make dangerous choices that can lead to severe consequences. One of those is vaping. 


Our middle school, junior high, and high school students can be especially vulnerable, but parents of all ages must stay educated and aware of the challenges our children face. The use of e-cigarettes, or “vaping,” is a rapidly growing trend among young people around the country. The liquid used in a vape contains nicotine or marijuana - and as we are learning from the recent trend of lung illnesses - other harmful chemical additives that can quickly and unexpectedly cause irreparable and deadly damage. 


Cigarettes, e-cigs, and vapes are strictly prohibited at all of our campuses. Both are a distraction to learning and a health hazard for our students. If found, students will be disciplined according to the Brenham ISD Code of Conduct and board policy. FNCD (Legal)


We believe that parents and educators have a shared responsibility to shape our children’s future, including educating them about potential dangers and consequences. We continue to address this issue with district leadership, our campus staff, and our students. We hope that you will join us by having conversations with your children about these items, their potential dangers, and the consequences that come with their use.


We will remain vigilant in ensuring a safe and productive learning environment for all of our students. We hope that you will join us by having conversations with your children about these items, their potential dangers and the consequences that come with their use. I am proud to serve as your superintendent and will continue to work to make Brenham ISD a place where our students feel safe and have meaningful learning experiences that prepare them for a healthy, vibrant future. 


Sincerely,

Dr. Walter Jackson

Superintendent of Schools
