Message From Principal

Dear Voorhees Parents/Guardians,

Over the last year, there has been a surge nationwide in the use of vaporizers and e-cigarettes by teenagers.  There are many health concerns and risks associated with this new trend.  These products can be used to ingest tobacco, marijuana (THC) and other chemicals and will be treated as drug paraphernalia if a student is caught with these devices on school property.  This message is to inform you of the school policies related to the use or possession of vaporizers and e-cigarettes in school.  (more…)
