Parents and guardians,
It has come to my attention that we have had a couple of occasions when students have been able to purchase disposable e-cigarettes from Amazon online. They are called "Imperial Disposable Hookah." They look like a fancy decorative pen and apparently it is easy to get them online. There is a restriction that you need to be 18 years old to purchase these disposable cigarettes as they contain nicotine. However, there appears to be no other stopgap other than a dialog box popping up and asking the buyer if he or she is 18 years old. All students need is an Amazon gift card which they can easily get at Safeway and away they go with getting whatever they want online. This is just another reminder to us that it is prudent to monitor what your son or daughter might be doing online.
