Students, please keep in mind the following as we progress through homecoming week. Hazing activities of any type are inconsistent with the educational process and will be prohibited at all times. Hazing is defined as follows: Doing any act or coercing another, including the victim, to do any act of initiation into any student or other organization that causes or creates a substantial risk of causing mental or physical harm to any person. Permission, consent, or assumption of risk by any individual subjected to hazing does not lessen the prohibition contained in the policy. Appropriate disciplinary action will follow and may be reported to law enforcement (p 19 Student Handbook). Have a safe and enjoyable homecoming week. Treat each other well.
Congratulations to our Homecoming King and Queen – Chandler Larson and Alexis Hanten!
