Information on e-cigarettes from PTSA Meeting

posted May 15, 2019, 12:54 PM by Web Admin

Last Year e-cigarette (i.e., JUUling /Vaping) rose by 48% in middle schools across the county.  Kids are using these products at NBMS and they need our help!  The PTSA hosted a well attended information session on 5/14/2019  to learn more about this growing practice and help protect our kids from a life time of addiction to tobacco.  The PTSA wants to make all the resources available to our community.  It take a village to address such a threat.  We need Parents, Teachers, Students and Administrators to work together on this. 
Below are a variety of resource documents we have been collecting.  Many were shared by presenters at the PTSA meeting. 

Feel free to reach out to Marla Hollander, VP Enrichment, PTSA with any questions.

Dear Parents and Guardians,


I am writing to inform you about two incidents that occurred today, May 8.


This morning, at approximately 11:30 a.m., a student was in distress and threatened to harm himself. School administration responded to the classroom, moved students to another classroom and contacted the Crisis Center to provide assistance to the student. We activated a Shelter-in-Place to restrict movement in the building so the Montgomery County Police and Crisis team could attend to the student.


Shortly after that incident as students dismissed from 7th grade lunch, a student was in the hallway and yelled out a sentence that included the word “gun”. A staff member heard this and promptly moved students into classrooms and notified administration. The school went into lockdown at approximately 12:15 out of an abundance of caution. MCPD and members of our security team were on site and quickly determined that the threat was non-credible. The lockdown was lifted.


I want to thank our partners in the Montgomery County Police Department for responding quickly to our school to ensure student safety. All students and staff are safe and we have resumed our normal instructional day. Please contact the school at 240-740-2100 if you have any questions or e-mail me directly at
