JICH: DRUG AND ALCOHOL USE BY STUDENTS PROHIBITED

FILE: JICH
 
In view of the fact that the use of drugs and alcohol can endanger the health and safety of the user, and recognizing the deleterious effect the use of alcoholic beverages or drugs can have on the maintenance of general order and discipline, the School Committee prohibits the use or consumption of any drug or alcoholic beverage on school property or at any school function.
 
Additionally, any student, regardless of age, who is under the influence of drugs or alcoholic beverages prior to attendance at, or participation in, a school-sponsored activity, will be barred from that activity and subject to disciplinary action.
