A Message from Mr. Freiberg

     BP 5131.6 Students Alcohol and Other Drugs

     The Board of Trustees believes that the use of alcohol or other drugs adversely affects a student’s ability to achieve academic success, is physically and emotionally harmful, and has serious social and legal consequences.  The Board desires to keep district schools free of alcohol and other drugs in order to help prevent violence, promote school safety and create a well-disciplined environment conducive to learning. 

     Students possessing, using or selling alcohol or other drugs or related paraphernalia shall be subject to disciplinary procedures including suspension or expulsion and/or referral to law enforcement in accordance with law, Board policy and administrative regulations.  In addition, such students may be referred to an appropriate counseling program, transferred to an alternative placement, and/or be restricted from school-sponsored activities or extracurricular activities, including athletics, graduation, and dances.


  • · 1st Offense:  5 day suspension or  1 day suspension with alternative to suspension drug and alcohol counseling program;  and  student contract/formal reprimand/ recommendation for expulsion
  • · 2nd Offense:  5 day suspension and formal reprimand/recommendation for expulsion.

Students must respond to the authority of all school personnel and follow their directions.  Students are expected to conduct themselves and behave properly and appropriately before, during, and after school, and at school sponsored events and activities held on or off campus.  Student who disrupt the orderly educational procedures of the school or refuse to comply with reasonable requests or directions of school staff will result in a referral to the Dean of Students.
