TUPE (Tobacco Use and Prevention Education)
 
Video Series: What Adults Need to Know About Vaping & Teens.  As you know, vape pens have completely shifted the landscape of tobacco prevention both locally and globally. While the dangers of commercial, combustible tobacco products, such as cigarettes and little cigars, is widely known among both adults and young people, less is known about the effects of vape pens. Check out the six-part video series to learn more from adult and youth experts about these products, the impact these products are having on young people, the intersections between tobacco and cannabis/marijuana use, available resources, and tips for parents and educators.https://www.cccoe.k12.ca.us/cms/One.aspx?portalId=1077397&pageId=24856873

We would like to extend an invitation for you to share any transitions your family may be going through with our Counselor. While we respect your privacy, oftentimes students can be distracted and unable to learn when they are worried or anxious. All information is kept strictly confidential.
 
If your family is experiencing difficulties at home, we would like to provide support at school. We understand that you are not always able to share details and that's okay. If your child is coming to school after a difficult night, morning or weekend, please text "Handle with Care" to 925-272-9639  Nothing else will be said or asked. This will let us know that your child may need extra time, patience or help during the day.
