Hazardous/Dangerous Items

DANGEROUS WEAPONS

The staff and student body will not tolerate the possession of any weapons or other dangerous objects on campus. Edmonds School District Board Policy #8220 (Section III, Exceptional Misconduct), RCW 9.41.250, RCW 9.41.280 prohibit the possession of weapons or other dangerous objects, including toy or facsimile weapons, on school property.

Weapons and dangerous objects include, but are not limited to:

Firearms, metal knuckles, air guns, weighted chains, firecrackers, baseball bats, nun-chu-ka sticks, toy weapons, facsimile weapons, water guns, paintball guns, stun guns, tasers, knives, box cutters, razors, lighters, clubs or pipes, sling shots and sand clubs.

"Possession" includes but it is not limited to having a weapon or dangerous object anywhere on school property or​ at any school sponsored event.

The item could be located: (a) in a space assigned to a student (such as a locker or desk); (b) on the student's person or property (such as on the student's body, in his/her clothing, purse, backpack, gym bag or vehicle); or (c) under the student's control or accessible or available (such as hidden by the student).

Students in possession of a weapon or dangerous object will be suspended or expelled. Students using an object in a threatening manner will be suspended or expelled. In these cases, a student also may be guilty of a gross misdemeanor.

Students who choose to remain in the area of illicit or criminal activities involving weapons may be charged with possession if they have had a reasonable opportunity to withdraw or report even if they are not participating.

Any student who is determined to have carried a firearm onto school property or to a school sponsored event shall be expelled for no less than a year in accordance with RCW 28A.600.420. June 30, 2018
