As a student of District 196, you should be aware of the School District Weapons Policy as follows:
- No student or nonstudent shall possess, use or distribute a weapon before, during, or after school hours in any school district location or during any school sponsored event.
- The school district will act to enforce this policy and to discipline or take appropriate action against any student, teacher, administrator, school employee, volunteer, or member of the public who violates this policy. (See your Student Rights and Responsibilities School handbook for additional information.)
As a member of the AVHS Trap Shooting Club, the District Weapons Policy still applies to you. For definition purposes, equipment is defined as a shotgun, gun case, and/or ammunition (full or empty boxes or shell casings).
Under no circumstances should a student athlete bring their equipment to school in their vehicle, or plan to leave directly from school to go to the range. This would be a strict violation of the District’s Weapons Policy, for which you should expect to be punished to the fullest extent.
In a situation where the student accidently leaves equipment in their vehicle, when realized, they must self-report and immediately inform School Administration and the appropriate steps will be taken.
As a member of the AVHS Trap Shooting Club, our position is not to debate policy; we must strictly adhere to this policy, as there are no exceptions nor are there any protections guaranteed. If you have any questions on this issue, please feel free to speak with one of the coaching staff and/or Board of Directors for Apple Valley High School Trap Shooting Club, Inc.
