Possession of firearms and weapons is prohibited on school premises at all times except for law
enforcement officials. Adults and students may possess weapons on school property for the
limited purpose of facilitating or participating in a school-sanctioned firearm-related event. The
building principal's written approval for the specific school-sanctioned event is required in
advance. As used in this policy, the phrase "school premises" includes all district buildings,
grounds, vehicles, and parking areas. This prohibition also extends to the sites of school activities
whether or not those activities are conducted on school district property.
Individuals found to be in violation of this policy will be dealt with severely. Students will be
disciplined up to and including expulsion as provided in policy JG-R. Law enforcement officials
will be notified and the individual violating the policy will be directed to leave school premises.
Non-students violating this policy will be barred from all school premises and school activities for
a period of one (1) year. Subsequent violations by the same individual will result in a permanent
bar from school premises and school activities.
