POLICY

I. No person who is not a student in good standing, teacher, or employee of the School Board or any person who is not required by his/her employment to be on a school campus or school grounds shall enter upon said school campus or school grounds without first registering at the principal’s office and obtaining a visitor’s pass or otherwise receive permission for access to school grounds.

II. A student who is suspended or expelled is not in good standing and is not permitted on any school campus, on any school grounds, or at any school sponsored activity.

III. This policy shall apply not only during school hours, but at any time students in good standing, teachers, employees and other such persons are on the school campus or school grounds, and shall also apply for all school activities which are held after school hours.

IV. Any person on a school campus or school grounds not in accordance with this policy is hereby declared to be a trespasser and shall be asked to leave immediately by any staff member.
