Tobacco, Vaporizers, and Nicotine Products
Garner Magnet High School is a tobacco-free campus and as such prohibits the use or distribution of all tobacco products by employees, students, and visitors. Student health and wellness is of the highest priority. For this reason, no student shall violate the Board's "Use of tobacco and Nicotine products" policy. Students are specifically advised that this policy prohibits vaporizers and liquids used in vaporizers even if they do not contain tobacco or nicotine.
The possession of weapons, explosives of any kind, or objects, tools, or devices that may be used as weapons, is prohibited on campus and at any school-related activity, whether or not the activity is on campus.
Personal items can create a nuisance or an undue distraction. Items such as laser pointers, water pistols, skateboards, and rollerblades are not permitted at school. Students who have questions concerning what types of personal items are permitted on campus should ask for administrative clarification before bringing questionable items onto the campus. All personal items should be marked clearly with a student’s name.
Students should not bring excessive amounts of cash or valuable jewelry to school. Garner Magnet High School is not responsible for lost or stolen items.
