Both the state of Washington and the Central Kitsap School District have taken strong action to assure safe schools for all students and staff. In keeping with State Law, our school board has adapted a policy, which carries severe consequences for any student who brings a weapon to school-regardless of the reason or the age of the student.
Any student that brings a firearm to school, or who has one in their possession while on school grounds or at a school sponsored event, will be expelled. State law says that students expelled for bringing a gun to school may not be admitted to any other public school in the state, during the time of expulsion.
Weapons are defined as any object, in addition to a knife or gun, brought to school with the intent to harm another person. In fact, our schools are not allowing replicas of weapons including air guns, toy guns, water pistols, etc.
