La Porte Community School Corporation Board of School Trustees adopted policies at their March 19, 2013 regular monthly meeting which eliminates the use of tobacco products on Corporation property and in all Corporation owned vehicles.

Policy 7434 states, "In order to protect students and staff from the adverse impact of tobacco smoke on indoor air quality and encourage students to not use tobacco in any form, the Board prohibits the use of tobacco in school buildings, on school grounds, at school activities, and on school buses at all times."

Adults who would like to quit smoking in this challenging economy can call Indiana’s free tobacco Quitline at 1-800-QUITNOW. In addition to valuable support from trained counselors, callers also receive a great financial boost with two free boxes of nicotine patches or gum. 

La Porte Community School Corporation staff or parents who would like to improve their health – and that of their families - are encouraged to call the Quitline at 1-800-784-8669.
