Download

Tobacco is the number one killer and is the leading cause of preventable death in Maine.  In order to reduce the high incidence of tobacco use, promote health and safety of all students and employees, and promote the cleanliness of all facilities, the Directors of M.S.A.D. No. 75 prohibit the use, distribution and sale of tobacco products in school buildings, on school grounds, on school buses and at school-sponsored functions at all times by all persons.  "Tobacco products" includes but is not limited to cigars, cigarettes, chewing tobacco and bidis.


In addition, students are further prohibited from possessing tobacco products in school buildings, on school grounds, on buses and at school-sponsored functions at all times.  Students will be discouraged from wearing and/or displaying any type of tobacco promotion materials.

Tobacco prevention education will be incorporated into the District's K-12 comprehensive health curriculum as part of the Maine Learning Results, so that all students will be aware of the consequences of use/non-use of tobacco products.
