Students may exercise their freedom of expression in mature and
responsible ways, as long as they do not cause a material disruption of
the school. The right to free expression does not include obscene or
libelous material or fighting words. Student-produced material and
material that is not produced by students, but is intended to be
distributed, published or broadcast within the school or on school
grounds must first be submitted to the principal for approval. Only
after the in-school distribution of material that is libelous, obscene
or causes material disruption, may the school discipline a student.
Students planning to assemble during non-school time are advised to
consult with the principal for an appropriate time and space. Students
do not have a right to assemble while classes are in session, or while
the students are supposed to be attending class.
All displays, bulletin boards, leaflets, and notices for the Daily
Bulletin must be approved by the club advisor, a teacher or a school
administrator. Notices for the Daily Bulletin should be submitted to the
Main Office on the preceding day by 12:00 p.m. The Daily Bulletin is
read during the first period of the day and posted in the building.
Emergency announcements are read over the public address system only by
approval of an administrator.
