A Message about Teen Vaping

A message from Robert F. Pezzella, School Safety Director

Hello parents of the Worcester Public Schools. With summer break upon us now, I’d like to address a major issue with you: Teen Vaping.

Teenagers are vaping in our schools, and this is not unique! Some professionals are referring to this as a vaping epidemic across the country. Whether students are vaping liquid nicotine or cannabis (THC), this is harmful to the minds and bodies of our youth.

Please take some time out of your summer schedule and talk to your children on the dangers of vaping.

The state has put together some very informative websites on vaping that can help you prior to having that serious conversation regarding this public health issue.

You may also reach out to me if you need more guidance or direction.
