Parents of Tarkington HS and MS Students,
Vaping has become an alarming trend within our district. It is not only harmful to our student’s health, but devices and components are also illegal for students to possess or use at school. The consequences at school include ISS, DAEP, required 12 hour awareness course, minor in possession ticket, and loss of driver’s license.
Please make sure your student makes the right choice for their health and their future.
Everyone at Tarkington ISD wants what is best for every student and will continue to be diligent in this matter through education and adherence to the TISD Code of Conduct.
Thank you for your support and assistance in this matter.
