I have been teaching for years and a long time band director at my current school district. I have come to know the kids and community and hold them close to my heart. Having said that, this week has been a difficult stretch. There is a problem with vape/drug use in our school district among younger students. I have three students that have gotten suspended for such behavior. Have you ever addressed things like this with your band? If so...what was the result? Is it worth it? Our band almost had one of our kids die because of the effects of vaping. Its so overwhelming and I know when I was young I made some stupid decisions however, the severity of their poor decisions is so alarming!
P.S. Many of the parents see no problem with what they are doing.
