For Their Good:
Urge my child to NEVER ride with any driver who has been drinking or using drugs Be available if my child needs a ride home if they call about drinking or drugs at a social event Notify parents of minors who arrive at your home drunk or appear under the influence: "Come and pick up your child." Warn your child not to drink from an unopened container Allow your child to use you as an excuse when offered alcohol or drugs: "My Mom said that I have to leave now"; My Dad said that I can't go - bummer"
It's the Law
It's important to know the laws concerning safety and legality
RE: It's the Law
Durham Public Schools - Suspension Policy - Full polices are at 4300
The Student Code of Conduct rules are leveled, indicating the severity of each violation and the type of intervention and/or consequence. Students may also receive in-school interventions and/or in-school disciplinary consequences for violation of any school-specific rules, provided students and parents are provided prior written notice of such rules (and the consequences for violating them), the rules are published on the school website and/or available for inspection at the school’s main office, and the rules are not in conflict with this or any other Board policy or state or federal law.
