Newport-Mesa Unified School District (NMUSD) is collaborating with the Orange County Department of Education to provide the Tobacco-Use Prevention Education (TUPE) program to students and community members. 

Part of this program is an intervention plan for students, a required element of the district’s anti-tobacco policy. With parent consent, students who have used tobacco products, electronic cigarettes, or vape materials may participate in an educational program, YVAPE. Students may also meet with school counseling staff to discuss ways to help them make healthier decisions related to tobacco/nicotine and to quit use completely. The school has additional education and cessation resources available. 

The following resources through the Orange County Health Care Agency are also available to help students quit tobacco:

The district is committed to the health and wellness of its students and appreciates the partnership it has with families in supporting healthy choices now and for the future.
