HJUHSD is excited to be working in a Coalition to Address the Vaping Epidemic that our students face with the following partners: California Health Collaborative, Hanford Police Department, Kings County Office of Education (TUPE Program- Tobacco Use Prevention Education}, and the Kings County Health Department. A presentation has been planned for the District's Certificated Staff on January 31, 2020 during the Professional Development Day at Sierra Pacific High School. In addition, two Community Presentations are being tentatively scheduled for March 12, 2020 and March 19, 2020 in the Hanford Civic Auditorium. One of these Presentations will be conducted in Spanish. Furthermore, the Coalition Members will participate in the Eight Grade Orientation Meetings at the Bizarre for each Comprehensive site on March 3, 2020 at Sierra Pacific , March 4, 2020 at Hanford High , and March 5, 2020 at Hanford West. Please stay tuned for more details once final preparations have been made by the Coalition. Channel 30 is airing a story on vaping this weekend.
