Weapons and Dangerous Instruments
Except as hereinafter noted, no weapons or dangerous instruments shall be permitted on any school premises, in, about or on school buses, nor at any school-sponsored activity, on or off school premises, except that police officers may carry weapons in performance of their duty. Further, weapons or dangerous instruments may be brought to school by persons licensed to carry such only when authorized by the principal when it pertains to an educational activity scheduled by the administration. In these instances the weapons must be cased, and the Superintendent's office must be informed prior to the event.
