Consumption of Energy Drinks Policy

It has been brought to our attention by teachers and students that energy drinks (Monster, Red Bull, etc.) are being consumed in excessive amounts by students during the day while they are at school. In reading the label on an empty can of an energy drink, the following warning was noted:

“Consume responsibly. Limit 3 cans per day. Not recommended for children, pregnant women or people sensitive to caffeine.”

After much thought, we feel it is best if these energy drinks (Monster, Red Bull, etc.) are no longer permitted at Vance Charter School. Aside from the education of our children, we must also be concerned for their general safety. We feel we are neglecting the students’ safety and well being if we allow this to continue.

Please help us by ensuring that these drinks are not coming to school with your child. Any such drinks found will be confiscated. Repeated possession of an energy drink will result in disciplinary action.

Thank you so much for your help and support with this matter.

Sincerely,

Sean Connolly, Principal
