    1. All school property can be used for any school extra-curricular activity.

    3. Any use of the school buildings for pay entertain­ments must be limited to organizations only such as church, fraternal orders, Red Cross, Cancer drives, March of Dimes, and the like.

    4. Any permission to use the school building, other than for school purposes, must be obtained from the principal and Superintendent and they shall decide if the proposed use conforms to the intent and purpose of Board policy.  All requests must be made in writing.
