Rye City Schools Tackle Vaping/E-Cig Use

Shout Out to Superintendent, Dr. Eric Byrne, and our sector partners at the Rye City School District for taking aim at the emerging trend of Vaping & e-Cig Use.  Dr. Byrne partnered with RyeACT to create a flyer highlighting research and statistics about the risks associated with e-Cig use and Vaping, along with reminders about NY State laws and School District policies around use.  The flyer was distributed with a letter from Dr. Byrne to all faculty and staff, as well as parents in the district K-12.  Copies of the flyer are also being made available through the Rye High School Guidance Office.
