Although the Board welcomes the use of its facilities for public events, and public visitations to the schools, the Board expects all visitors to abide by acceptable rules of conduct. To maintain public order on school property, the Board prohibits the following conduct or acts on school property by students, teachers, staff members, licensees or invitees:
The willful physical injury of any person or the threat to use force which would result in such injury;
The harassment or coercion of any person;
The willful damage to, or destruction of, property;
The willful disruption of the orderly conduct of classes or of any other school program or activity;
The entry of any school building or upon any portion of the school premises unless such entry is made in connection with official business with the district or to attend an activity or function authorized thereby;
The willful interference with the lawful and authorized activities of others;
The possession, consumption, or exchange of alcoholic beverages, unauthorized drugs, or narcotics on school property;
The possession or use of a knife, razor, ice pick, explosives, loaded cane, sword cane, machete, pistol, rifle, shot gun, pellet gun, air gun, or any other object that reasonably can be considered a weapon, on property of the school district;
The violation of any federal or state statute, local ordinance, or Board policy;
The refusal or failure of any person to comply with a lawful order or direction of an official of the school district in the performance of his or her duties;
The distribution or posting of any written material, pamphlets, or posters without the prior written approval of the Superintendent.
Enforcement and Penalties
Any violation of the above shall be reported immediately to the building principal. The principal will investigate the case thoroughly and make a written report to the Superintendent.
Penalties that may be imposed by the principal and/or the Superintendent include:
An order by violators to leave school property immediately;

The penalties mentioned above are not considered to be inclusive or to preclude in any way the prosecution and conviction of any person for the violation of any federal or state law or local ordinance and the imposition of a fine or penalty provided for therein.
