Weight room policies change

Trustee Mike Buda and chair of the policy committee updated the board of education on the revisions made to the weight room policy as requested by some parents during the meeting March 24.

Buda said from 3 to 5 p.m. the room is open to athletic teams and students 13 and older with supervision.

From 5 to 9 p.m. the weight room is open to the community and students enrolled in a seventh through 12th grade program. Anyone younger than 18 years old must be accompanied by someone at least 21 years old with signed parental permission.

Everyone must sign in to the weight room.

The room is not open to the pubic during the summer or when school is not in session.

The district will take action for anyone who abuses the weight room. Offenders can lose privileges for 30 days or indefinitely.

The board approved the final reading. To view district policies visit canastotacsd.org.
