Open / Closed Campus
Closed Campus: All Elementary & Schoenbar Middle School
The School Board establishes a "closed campus" at district elementary and middle schools. The requirement to keep students on campus is part of the Board's efforts to maintain a safe school climate and to reduce afternoon absenteeism. Once students arrive at school, they must remain on campus until the end of the school day unless they have brought written authorization from their parents/guardians and received permission from school authorities to leave for a specific purpose. Students who leave campus without such authorization shall be classified as truant and subject to disciplinary action.
Open Campus: Revilla and Ketchikan High School
The School Board establishes an "open campus" at district high schools. By allowing our students to leave campus during the lunch period and for snack break, the Board entrusts them with an opportunity to learn responsibility and demonstrate good citizenship. Students shall not leave the school grounds at any other time during the school day without written authorization of their parents/guardians and permission of school authorities. Students who leave school without such authorization shall be classified as truant and subject to disciplinary action.
