The no smoking sign switched on

-A A +A
By Kirsten Laskey

The no smoking sign has been permanently lit at Los Alamos Public Schools. During the school board meeting Tuesday night, the Tobacco Policy 5128 and Regulation 5128R were approved and as result, tobacco use has been extinguished from the school district.


The policy states that no tobacco will be used on school property or at school functions.


Additionally, there will be an ongoing campaign to keep students from initiating tobacco use, help students quit tobacco use and prevent students who continue to use tobacco from using it on school grounds and at school events.


To bolster the district’s ban on tobacco, adults, school personnel, volunteers and others are also prohibited from smoking, holding a pipe, cigar, cigarette or using tobacco in any form at the schools’ campuses, sponsored activities, buildings and vehicles. They are also banned from smoking in personnel vehicles while they transport students to and from school events.


Further, students cannot wear or possess anything that promotes tobacco products or companies while on the schools’ campuses, buildings, property, vehicles and events.


Counseling services will ensure that the necessary counseling and referrals are available to stop tobacco use and addiction to nicotine.
