Sheriff James Gannon from Morris County came to RHS on October 10th to speak to our students about vaping and the considerable consequences of misusing social media. He spoke with two sessions of students and shared actual incidents of how both of these topics can cause physical and emotional harm.
We continue to try and educate our students about not only the consequences associated with vaping but the potential health dangers that are just being discovered. Hopefully the videos shared at BTSN have helped educate everyone on the potential high levels of nicotine that can be added to these electronic devices not to mention the illegal oils that are also available.
We continue to also see the misuse of social media to include texting. Students still share with us that they thought the site was “private” or that they only sent it to “one” friend. We like to tell them that if it’s not something you want to appear as a headline on network news ~ don’t send it. Nothing is private!
