Letter: Smoking at high schools

We are not children’s servants and in my opinion that is what it is portraying.

To the editor:

I want to write about smoke pits at our high schools.

We provide them with a space to smoke complete with seating and an ashtray. If we are stocking the vending machines only with healthy snacks, then why are we promoting smoking?

I also witnessed school staff picking up cigarette butts around them. What is this teaching the kids? We are not children’s servants and in my opinion that is what it is portraying.
