The Uinta County School District Number One Board of Trustees recognizes that the use of tobacco and tobacco products represents a health and safety hazard, which can have serious consequences for the tobacco user and nonuser and the safety of the District. Because the use of tobacco in the school and work environment is not conductive to good health and that as an educational organization, the District provides both effective educational programs and a positive example to students concerning the use of tobacco, the Board desires to establish a tobacco free environment within School District buildings, on school district property, and at all school functions and events.
Recognizing the negative impact of tobacco on users and nonusers alike and safety hazards caused by the use of tobacco and tobacco products, the Board declares all District buildings, District Property, and District vehicles operated by the Board and all spaces within them, to be officially designated tobacco free environments. Staff, students, parents, and members of the public are expected to observe this restriction at all times.
