Important Information regarding new School Board Policy and Deadly Weapons

Dear Parents, Friends and Families,
 
Please be aware that the School Board's firearms, deadly weapons, and weapons policies have been updated to meet Alaska Department of Education reporting requirements.
 
Among the changes are that all knives, regardless of blade length, are categorized as deadly weapons. State law dictates a 30-day minimum suspension from school for deadly weapon possession. For more information, visit k12northstar.org/weaponpolicy.
 
Please don't hesitate to let me know if you have any questions regarding the new policies.
Shawna Henderson, Principal
