SGUSD to Present Workshop on Vaping, and Drug AwarenessTuesday December 18th at 7:00 at Gabrielino High School in the Goodson Theater.

On Tuesday December 18th, the District will be sponsoring a workshop for parents to alert and inform them of the dangers of vaping. The workshop is presented by Impact Canine Solutions who is the company who conducts our canine searches. Vaping is a trend that is filtering down to students as young as elementary schools. There is a high percentage of teenage students who "vape" tobacco products and other liquid based products including marijuana. We would love to see all parents at Gabrielino High School, this Tuesday at 7:00 pm in the theater. There will be the presentation on vaping, and an opportunity to see examples of vaping products and other related items and to ask questions.
