Students may exercise their freedom of expression in mature and responsible ways, as long as they do not cause a material disruption of the school. The right to free expression does not include obscene or libelous material or fighting words. Student-produced material and material that is not produced by students, but is intended to be distributed, published or broadcast within the school or on school grounds must first be submitted to the principal for approval. Only after the in-school distribution of material that is libelous, obscene or causes material disruption, may the school discipline a student. Students planning to assemble during non-school time are advised to consult with the principal for an appropriate time and space. Students do not have a right to assemble while classes are in session, or while the students are supposed to be attending class.

All displays, bulletin boards, leaflets, and notices for the Daily Bulletin must be approved by the club advisor, a teacher or a school administrator. Notices for the Daily Bulletin should be submitted to the Main Office on the preceding day by 12:00 p.m. The Daily Bulletin is read during the first period of the day and posted in the building. Emergency announcements are read over the public address system only by approval of an administrator.
