Tobacco and Weapons-Free Campus
It is a violation of district policy and state law for any person to carry a firearm or dangerous weapon on school premises, school-provided transportation or areas of other facilities being used exclusively for school activities.
The Superintendent is directed to see that all school facilities post “Gun-Free Zone” signs, and that all violations of this policy and RCW 9.41.280 are reported annually to the Superintendent of Public Instruction.
In addition, in accordance with district Policy 4215, The Board of Directors recognizes that to protect students from exposure to the addictive substance of nicotine, employees and officers of the school district, and all members of the community, have an obligation as role models to refrain from use of tobacco products and delivery devices on school property at all times.

Any use of such products and delivery devices by staff, students, visitors and community members shall be prohibited on school district property. Possession by, or distribution of tobacco products to minors is prohibited. This shall include all district buildings, grounds and district-owned vehicles.
