These may include, but are not limited to, razor blades, box cutters, common pocketknives, air soft guns, mace/pepper spray, chemicals, live ammunition/bullets, imitation/look-alike weapons or similar items.
Possession of a dangerous object or device will result in disciplinary action, which may include out-of-school suspension.
