E-Cigarettes Banned From Millard Schools

The Millard School district officially banned e-cigarettes from school grounds Monday.

A Millard spokesperson told WOWT 6 News the policies passed unanimously without further discussions by the school board.

The school district already banned all tobacco products from being used by students, employees and even contractors on school grounds. They decided to add e-cigarettes after some parents and students were seen puffing the vapor into the air of indoor school events.

Some users say e-cigarettes are harmless because of no second-hand smoke, but others say it is still disrespectful to use indoors.

"It doesn't hurt them but I can understand it's out of respect," said Brian Myers, who claims e-cigarettes helped him with his nicotine addiction.

A ban is also being considered by the Papillion-La Vista School District.
