Beauregard schools seeking to curb e-cigarette usage

April 15th, 2021

The Beauregard Parish School Board is considering introducing a new program this fall that would discourage the use of electronic cigarettes, or vapes, by educating students on the health risks, according to school officials.

At the panel’s regular session Thursday night, board members were presented with an overview of the CATCH (Coordinated Approach To Child Health) My Breath campaign that focuses on spreading information on the health and safety risks associated with the use of e-cigarettes, along with promoting healthy diet and lifestyle practices.
