TOBACCO-FREE SCHOOLS SIGNS ARE NOW AVAILABLE!
Indoor, outdoor and school bus signage indicating that the use of all tobacco products is prohibited on campus is now available at no cost to Kentucky school districts that have newly adopted 100% tobacco-free policies as a result of, and in compliance with the new tobacco-free schools law (KRS 438.34, enacted April 9, 2019). The signage is available to districts on a first-come, first-served basis, until the supply is depleted. In January 2020, if supplies remain, this offer will be extended to all school districts that, prior to the new law, had already adopted tobacco-free policies that meet the new standard. One order per district; signage only (no installation materials); orders will be shipped as soon as possible but no later than July 1, 2020.
This program is funded by the Foundation for a Healthy Kentucky, the Kentucky Medical Association and the Kentucky Foundation for Medical Care, and was created in consultation with the Kentucky School Boards Association.
