Clinton schools will become ‘tobacco free’ Friday

Posted June 29, 2016 at 1:56 pm

Beginning Friday of this week, the bottom sign on the larger Tobacco Free School signs posted at each school in the district will come down, but the main signs will remain up and “go into effect” as Friday, July 1 is the start date in which all campuses, property and facilities owned by the Clinton County School District will ban tobacco products and their use.

About a year ago, through the urging of the Lake Cumberland District Health Department, Clinton County opted to join several other school districts in the state and a few others in the region to become tobacco free districts.

This new measure not only pertains to school hours, or direct school activities, but sporting and all other extracurricular activities that take place in school facilities and/or on school property.
