Video worth watching with your child- REPOST

Please take a moment to review this video. Vaping is a current issue very popular with teens and often many of us adults are unfamiliar with the different types that are around. As a learning community we can make sure that we are vigilant and stay updated and aware of what is happening in the lives of our students to protect them and educate them on the dangers of engaging in it. Help us keep Sequoia safe and a place where students can continue to make good choices for themselves.
