Navarro ISD believes in supporting parents and guardians to be more aware of the dangers of vaping. This site is a resource to help educate our community about the harmful effects of these devices and the legal ramifications of minors possessing them. We encourage you to review the information and even encourage your student to look at it with you to increase awareness and foster dialogue.
A minor charged for possession, purchase, consumption, or receipt of tobacco products (including e-cigarettes) can be punished with a fine up to $100. The court may also order the minor to attend an e-cigarette and tobacco awareness program.
