For purposes of this policy, “school property” means any buildings, vehicles, property, land, or facilities
used for school purposes or school-sponsored events, whether public or private.
The School District expects mutual respect, civility, and orderly conduct among all individuals on school
property or at a school event. No person on school property or at a school event shall:

1. Injure, threaten, harass, or intimidate a staff member, a School Board member, sports official
or coach, or any other person;
2. Damage or threaten to damage another’s property;
3. Damage or deface School District property;
4. Violate any New Hampshire law, or town or county ordinance;
5. Smoke or otherwise use tobacco products;
6. Consume, possess, distribute, or be under the influence of alcoholic beverages or illegal
drugs, or possess dangerous devices or weapons;
7. Impede, delay, disrupt, or otherwise interfere with any school activity or function (including
using cellular phones in a disruptive manner);
8. Enter upon any portion of school premises at any time for purposes other than those that are
lawful and authorized by the School Board;
9. Operate a motor vehicle in violation of an authorized District employee’s directive or posted
road signs.
10. Violate other District policies or regulations, or an authorized District employee’s directive.
11. Use, or attempt to use, or threaten to use any device, instrument, material, or substance
(prohibited object) with the purpose to injure, threaten, intimidate, or coerce another person;
for the purposes of this section, any reckless use of any prohibited object which places or may
place another in danger of serious bodily injury is also prohibited.
12. Operate (either upon or over school property) a drone or other unmanned aircraft.

Any person who violates this policy or any other acceptable standard of behavior may be ordered to leave
school grounds. Law enforcement officials may be contacted at the discretion of the supervising district
employee if such employee believes it necessary.
Additionally, the District reserves the right to issue “no trespass” letters to any person whose conduct
violates this policy, acceptable standards of conduct, or creates a disruption to the school district’s
educational purpose.
