Telephone Usage/Cell Phones

GESD permits possession of cell phones (electronic signaling devices) on a school campus but requires that they be turned off and put away during the instructional day.  It does not encourage students to bring them to campus, but understands the wishes of parents to communicate electronically with their children, particularly in an emergency. Students may use the office phones with office staff permission or come to the office and use their cell phone during break or lunch.   If a student uses a cell phone on campus, school officials have the authority to confiscate the device.  The use of camera functions on electronic devices is prohibited on campus.

PUPIL RECORDS

Parents have the right to inspect their child's records.  The principal should be contacted to arrange a convenient time to inspect the records.

ALCOHOL AND OTHER DRUGS POLICY STATEMENT

Because the use of alcohol and other drugs adversely affects a student's ability to achieve academically, is physically and emotionally harmful, and has serious and legal consequences, the Grenada Elementary School District Governing Board intends to keep the school alcohol and drug free. Every effort will be made to reduce the chances that our students will begin or continue using alcohol and other drugs. A prevention program that includes instruction, intervention, recovering student support, and enforcement/discipline will be implemented. The Governing Board recognizes that effectively keeping schools alcohol and drug free is a cooperative effort between school, home, and the community.

The Superintendent or designee shall take appropriate action to eliminate possession, use, or sale of alcohol and other drugs and related paraphernalia on school grounds, at school events, or in any situation in which the school is responsible for the conduct and well-being of the students. Students possessing, selling, and/or using alcohol or other related paraphernalia shall be subject to disciplinary procedures which may result in suspension or expulsion.

School authorities may search student and school properties for the possession of alcohol and other drugs as long as such searches are conducted in accordance with law, Board Policy, and administrative regulations.

By State Law, student possession of, or smoking of tobacco, drinking of, or possession of alcoholic products is prohibited. A student found violating this law may be immediately suspended pending disciplinary action.

TOBACCO-FREE SCHOOLS

Ample research has demonstrated that health hazards are associated with the use of tobacco products, including smoking and the breathing of second-hand smoke. therefore, the Governing Board believes it is in the best interest of students, employees, and the general public to prohibit the use of tobacco products anywhere and any time on district property and in district vehicles. The use of tobacco products shall be prohibited on the campus at all times.

By State Law, student possession of, or smoking of tobacco, drinking of, or possession of alcoholic products is prohibited. A student found violating this law may be immediately suspended pending disciplinary action.
