The committee invites residents and organizations to take out an ad in the journal. All contributions are 100 percent tax-deductible. Ad costs are $500 for a full page, $250 for a half page, $125 for a quarter page, and $50 for business card-sized ad. Ads and checks, made payable to MPFD, may be mailed to the Midland Park Fire Department at P.O. Box 51, Midland Park, NJ 07432. Conduct policy (continued from page 4) in a prohibition for 180 days. Additional consequences may be warranted, according to the regulation, based on factors presented by the student’s coach and/or activity advisor and any consequences imposed under this regulation would run concurrently with separately imposed disciplinary consequences resulting from the student’s conduct, such as out-of-school suspensions. The regulation explains that the student would receive educational intervention during any suspension from extracurricular activities and that there would be a re-entry conference between the student and his or her parents or guardians, the specific school building administrator, and the student assistance counselor. Violations of this policy and regulation during periods in the school year when the student is not involved in extracurricular activities would result in a formal assessment of the problem and the completion of a treatment program as deemed necessary by the district administrator before the student would be permitted to participate in any subsequent extracurricular activity that school year. The policy and regulation for student conduct away from school grounds, especially concerning the use of drugs and alcohol, has been a controversial issue in the district since 2007 when the original regulation was proposed. Since then, the board has revised it several times, seeking a way to address the objections of parents who voiced concerns about the legality of the school district disciplining their children while away from school and even on weekends. The objecting parents have voiced the specific concern that the alleged violations could occur while the student is in the custody of his or her parents and under their supervision, on weekends, during school vacations, during the summer, at home, or while away from the school. They also have objected to the fact that the school district’s action would be taken prior to a determination of the student’s guilt or innocence in a court of law. 1ST ANNUAL SPRING GALA PERFORMANCE Saturday May 30th, 1:00 PM & 7:00 PM At Berrie Center for the Arts, Ramapo College. ����������������������������������������������������������������������� ������������������������������������������������������������������������ ���������������������������������������������������������������������������� ���������������������������������������������������������������� ����������������������������������������������������������������������� ����������������������������������������������������������������������
