CODE OF CONDUCT – FRESHMAN/SOPHOMORE TRIP At the end of the school year, the Gloucester County Institute of Technology will reward those students who meet or exceed our behavior expectation for the school year. Those students will have the opportunity to go to Six Flags Great Adventure for the day. The trip is fully approved by the Gloucester County Institute of Technology Board of Education and is therefore, subject to all school policies and regulations pertaining to school-sponsored trips and student behavior. It is expected that the freshmen/sophomores going to Six Flags Great Adventure will have a good time. On the other hand, for the welfare of everyone concerned and for the sake and reputation of the school, as well as that of the individual pupils and teachers, certain conduct must be insisted upon. Each student will be held responsible for his/her conduct and appearance. Everyone at all times and under all conditions, is expected to act as a lady or a gentleman.
A student will be determined to be eligible for the freshman/sophomore trip if he/she has been suspension free. A student will be determined to be ineligible for the freshman/sophomore trip if he/she has been:
a. Deemed as under the influence of alcohol or illegal drugs just before leaving
b. Caught with illegal substances before leaving for the trip.
THE FOLLOWING GENERAL PRINCIPLES WILL BE INSISTED UPON:
1. Complete cooperation with the chaperones. Chaperones are designated by the school and will
have full charge of the students. Every student must cooperate with the chaperones to the fullest extent.
2. The purchase, possession, and/or consumption of alcoholic beverages and non-prescription drugs is prohibited for all students, regardless of age. This rule specifically prohibits the possessing or transporting, consuming, and purchasing (even where state law would permit) of any alcoholic beverages and/or non-prescription drugs at any time during the trip (All prescription and over the counter drugs must be registered with the chaperones, as per the Medical Form.)
3. Smoking is not permitted at any time.
4. Students are to respect the property of other students, chaperones, the transportation company, and the public in general.
5. Dress for the school trip should be presentable. Dress in comfortable, casual clothes, per our school dress code.
6. It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to pick up their child upon return to the Gloucester County Institute of Technology.
7. FAILURE at any time, of any student, to follow the regulations for the trip or the authority of the chaperones will result in disciplinary action and parents will be notified.
8. Remember that you are a representative of Gloucester County Institute of Technology. Do not engage in any activity that will disgrace yourself, your family, the school or the community. Also, your behavior will be judged to help determine whether future Gloucester County Institute of Technology freshmen/sophomores will be permitted to go on their class trip.
Due to the need for certain students to carry and self-administer potentially life-saving medication in school and/or on a school-sponsored trip, the following district policy will govern this:
Written certification of the student’s illness, the name of the medication, dosage and time of administration and length of time medication to be taken must be provided to the school by the student’s physician. The physician will also certify, in writing, that the student is capable of and has been instructed in the proper administration of the required medication.
The parent/guardian must provide to the school written authorization for the administration of the medication. The parent/guardian will also sign a statement releasing the school from any responsibility for any injury or claim that may arise as a result of the student’s self-administration of medication.
PLEASE NOTE: Request forms are available in the School Nurse’s Office for the purpose of #1 and #2.
The Board of Education will inform the parent/guardian in writing that the district shall incur no liability as a result of any injury arising from the self-medication. This can be accomplished with a letter from the school explaining this policy.
On a school-sponsored trip, a student may carry on his/her person an inhaler for the treatment of asthma or an insect/bee sting kit for a life-threatening allergic reaction. Otherwise, the instructor/supervisor will hold the medication for the duration of the trip, but it will be the student’s responsibility to take the medication as directed by his/her physician.
Permission for medication self-administration will be effective for the school year for which it is granted and must be renewed annually.
This policy will also cover any over-the-counter medication that may need to be taken on an as needed basis on school-sponsored trips.
