Hello D6 Families!

This school year has flown by so fast! Please frequently check your students backpacks for information that has been sent home or will be sent home in regards to health requirements for the upcoming school year. The school nurses will also send home things periodically for health events we host at the schools, such as the mobile dentist. Consent is required for your student to participate in these health events.

Vaping

This week, I want to share information with our D6 families about the dangers of vaping. Below is a short video and a flyer about vaping. If you have questions or concerns about vaping and how to address this with your child, there are many, many, many resources online. You may also reach out to your school nurse to help you find information or resources.


You may also contact the Illinois Tobacco Quitline at 866-QUIT-YES (866-784-8937). The call is toll-free and you could be eligible to receive nicotine replacement like the patch at a reduced rate.
