Please to take moment to read about the harmful effects of vaporizers and e-cigarettes. Many families and young adults are having conversations about whether or not these devises are legal, safe, or healthy. Please know that these devices are classified as smoking paraphernalia and/or drug paraphernalia and they are strictly prohibited on school grounds. Smoking and drug paraphernalia will be confiscated and disciplinary consequences will be imposed if students are in possession of vaporizers or e-cigarettes. As a school we remain committed to the long-term health, safety, and well-being of our students. We encourage every family to have a conversation about the dangers of vaping. 

Vaping is often touted as smoking without the negative effects: no bad breath, no cigarette burns, less risk of cancer and other smoking-related diseases. There are, however, other risks associated with vaping.

Methuen Public Schools would like to make you aware of the different Benzodiazepines (Benzodiazepine Drug Class) which affects all communities. Please read this article for more information.
