Student Health and Safety


Vaping is becoming increasingly common amongst teenagers and, unfortunately, Romeo students are no exception. One of the biggest concerns with this, besides the evident health risks, is that most students don't seem to believe there is anything wrong with vaping. This is not the case. Below are some links to articles provided to us from Macomb Family Services that will help you, as a parent, inform yourself and your child(ren) of the harmful effects of vaping. To be clear, it is the policy of RHS/RETC that vaping, e-cigarettes, and other similar devices are not allowed on school grounds and discipline for first offenses will be nine days of suspension.
