Kimberly Middle School recognizes the power and duty to protect the morals, health, and safety of all pupils in the building.  These obligations and authority include providing all students an environment free of embarrassment or discomfort because of others displaying unacceptable public displays of affection.

All students are expected to refrain from unacceptable public displays of affection, whether in school, on school grounds, on busses, or at any district sponsored event, on campus, or elsewhere.

Unacceptable public displays of affection include, but are not limited to, any prolonged embracing and/or kissing, inappropriate touching, and touching of a sexual nature. Unacceptable public displays of affection at school are in poor taste, disruptive to the educational environment, and may violate sexual harassment laws.  Students who violate this policy may be subject to disciplinary action, counseling, and/or parental intervention.
