After students learned from home for over a year, schools are preparing for the effects of that when students return to learning for 5 days a week in a classroom.
One of the things Central Square Central School District Superintendent, Tom Colabufo, is keeping in mind is that students may not have been under the same amount of supervision at home that they are while in school, which may have resulted in bad habits being reinforced, like vaping.
Before the pandemic when students faced suspension for things like vaping, they would opt to attend sessions with the school based prevention program for a lesser penalty.
As school nears, the school is bringing on additional drug and alcohol counselors with money from the American Rescue Plan.
