Memorial Activities for Deceased Students or Staff

Recognizing that the loss of a member of the school community is deeply felt, schools will support staff, students and families who feel the loss and will assist with connections to appropriate community resources. However, school sites should not serve as a venue for the long-term memorializing of past or present students or staff.

Memorial activities must occur under the direct supervision of the building administration who has the discretion to make professional judgments, in consultation with district administration, to best meet the overall needs of students, staff, parents and the community as a whole. Memorial activities on school property may not occur while school is in session.
