Employees will be disciplined consistent with employee discipline policies. Others will be subject to discipline according to this policy.

Law enforcement may be contacted for assistance.
The Superintendent shall send a notice to the individual advising the individual of the District's right to exclude the individual from District premises and school activities, the duration of the exclusion, and that the individual may be removed and/or prosecuted if he or she visits school premises or attends an activity during the period of exclusion.
