Fox Cities schools ban e-cigarettes

Posted:

APPLETON (WKOW) -- Fox Cities School officials are updating guidelines to ban e-cigarettes on school grounds.

Their reason for the ban is to keep their children safe and healthy.  E-cigarettes are plastic and metal devices resembling traditional cigarettes.  A liquid nicotine solution is heated in a disposable cartridge, creating vapor that is inhaled.

Some Fox Cities schools already prohibit tobacco-related products, which include smoking and smokeless products.  Other schools are now revising their policies to include e-cigarettes.

An assistant superintendent with the Appleton Area School District says e-cigarettes haven't been a huge problem, but they have appeared and officials want students to know they're not acceptable.
