The National Health Commission reported 145 new cases on Monday.last_img read more

JOHN, B.C. — School District 60 has sent their annual letter on healthy living and smoking regulations home to parents, in an effort to reduce the number of children who smoke in the district.Assistant Superintendent Stephen Petrucci says the letter has ultimately had that intended effect, as less students have been smoking since he started two or three years ago.“Ensuring the middle school students stay on campus at lunch has really helped with that as well,” he said.- Advertisement -Petrucci says the middle school years are a critical age when kids could start smoking, and extra care has been put in to prevent them from starting.According to the letter, the Ministry of Education’s Tobacco-Free Schools policy denotes that tobacco — not just cigarettes — on school grounds is against the law.In closing, the letter states the district promotes a healthy lifestyle for all students and that they appreciate the support of parents and guardians in doing that.Advertisementlast_img read more
