There have been some questions about the use and/or possession of e-cigarettes. Since it is not directly written in our Code of Conduct, here is the Garrett County School system’s stance with regard to them:
E-cigarettes are designed to replace cigarettes in function and also to provide nicotine to the user. They are regulated by law and are not legal for a person under 18 to purchase. In accordance with the law and due to the nicotine content, they are not permitted in school. If found in possession of an e-cigarette, you will receive the same consequences as having tobacco products, such as snuff or cigarettes, which can result in a 3-Day Suspension and Referral to Law Enforcement and the Department of Juvenile Services.
