Permission is to be obtained from the Principal before animals are brought into the school by anyone. If students wish to bring in animals for educational purposes, they are to consult with their teachers who, in turn, will request permission from the Principal. Animals are not to be transported on a school bus.
Animals must be adequately housed and cared for in appropriate, contained habitats. Only the teacher or students designated by the teacher are to handle the animals.
If animals are to be kept in the classroom on days when classes are not in session, arrangements must be made for their care.
