Clearing the Air - Vape Prevention Workshop
Kids are wired to try new things. Whether it’s nicotine, THC (cannabis), or “just” flavoring, the current trend, both nationally and locally, is vaping. Along with other risky behaviors, this is something we need to have a conversation about, as parents and as a community that cares. We’ll talk about:

  • Ways we can help kids to break away from cultural pressures.
  • The teenage brain is built to take risks. How can we encourage smart choices?
  • Vaping can involve flavored liquids, nicotine, or THC (cannabis).
  • We’ll learn about the implications of each.
  • What are the implications of medical marijuana, and the potential for legalized adult use?

Message from MCOPH
The Montgomery County Office of Public Health (MCOPH) has seen an uptick in pertussis, also known as whooping cough, throughout the county. Pertussis, also known as whooping cough, is a very contagious disease. It can spread when a person with pertussis coughs or sneezes. A person with pertussis can spread the disease for several weeks unless treated. To protect yourself and others from getting sick, take action to help prevent the spread of respiratory illnesses, like pertussis:

  • Avoid close contact with sick people: Avoid close contact with people who are sick. When you are sick, keep your distance from others to protect them from getting sick too.
  • Stay home when you are sick:  It is important to stay home when sick for at least 24 hours after you no longer have a fever or signs of a fever without the use of fever-reducing medicines.
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes: Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing.  It may prevent those around you from getting sick.
  • Wash your hands often:  Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use at least a 60% alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth: Germs can be spread when a person touches something that is contaminated with germs and then touches his or her eyes, nose, or mouth.
  • Clean and disinfect: Clean surfaces and objects that are touched frequently, including desks, doorknobs, railings, computer keyboards, phones, and toys.
  • Staying up to date with your vaccinations: Vaccines help your body create protective antibodies that help it fight off infections. By getting vaccinated, you can protect yourself and avoid spreading preventable diseases to other people in your community.

If you think that your child has been exposed to pertussis or develops cold symptoms that include cough, contact their healthcare provider.

McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act
In 1987, Congress passed the Stewart B. McKinney Homeless Assistance Act, (subsequently renamed the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act) to aid homeless persons. The Act defines the term "homeless children and youths" as individuals who lack a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence. The Act explicitly includes within the definition of "homeless children and youths" those who are "awaiting foster care placement." On December 10, 2015, the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) was enacted amending McKinney-Vento. This Basic Education Circular (BEC) explains the categories of children who are "homeless" and entitled to the protections of the federal law. Click here to learn more.
