CODE OF CONDUCT
All students must maintain an attitude of respect for all members of the Christ the King Community. As members of the community we expect all students to represent our school in a positive manner.
RESPECT FOR PROPERTY:
All property at Christ the King Regional High School, indoors and outdoors, command the full respect of all students. This applies especially to desks, walls, lockers, library books, and equipment. Students may not bring permanent ink markers, paints or other damaging materials to school. A student who vandalizes school property will make financial restitution and will be subject to administrative review and possible criminal charges.
Students should not bring electronic devices such as cellular phones, ipods, Smart watches or digital cameras to school. Christ the King will not be responsible for these items. A student found using any such items will have them taken away. Christ the King will not make restitution for lost or stolen items. Students are responsible for their own property at all times. Students who do not relinguish an electronic device, when asked to do so, will be immediately expelled from Christ the King.
THE SCHOOL WILL MAKE ALL FINAL JUDGMENTS IN TERMS OF THE APPROPRIATENESS OF A STUDENT'S ATTIRE AND APPEARANCE.
