TMSS Alcohol/Drug Policy • TMSS considers the use of alcohol and/or illicit drugs to be a serious offense and will not tolerate students using nor being under the influence of such substances on school property or at school-sponsored activities. • Students who choose to use or are under the influence of alcohol at school or at a school sponsored activity can expect that there parents will be contacted and that the student will be sent home. The student can also expect the following: - A three-day out-of-school suspension. - A meeting with the school principal or vice-principal, the parent/guardians and the student. - The loss of an extra-curricular activity if the offending act took place during that activity. - The possible loss of all extra-curricular activity privileges. • As it pertains to Graduation day, if there is “sound reason” to believe that a Graduand is under the influence or in possession of alcohol and/or illicit drugs at the “school sponsored” Graduation Evening, the Graduand “will” immediately be prohibited from participating in any further Graduation activities and will be asked to leave the premises.
