Cannabis Information

On Wednesday, October 17, 2018 marijuana legalization took place for adults over the age of 19. As a school district, we wanted to let you know what measures we are putting in place to build student and staff understanding.

In school districts, rules around cannabis will not change. Like alcohol, cannabis is a controlled substance and is illegal for anyone under 19. Cannabis will not be allowed in our schools or on school properties. It is prohibited to be intoxicated, impaired, consume alcohol or smoke any substance including vaping, tobacco or cannabis on school property.

Bottom line: all of our policies prohibiting intoxication or controlled substances in schools still apply, regardless of the legal change.
