    printer friendly version

    Question: What's the maximum size of a knife that you can carry to school?

    Answer: All public schools have rules that prohibit students from possessing weapons at school. A knife is considered to be a weapon, but some schools have created an exception for a folding knife with a blade length of two and one-half inches or less. Other schools prohibit knives of any length.

    The disciplinary consequences of violating a school's weapon policy can be very severe, including mandatory expulsion from school. Therefore, a student who routinely carries a pocket knife should check the student handbook or the district policy on weapons before bringing a knife to school.

    i feel we should be able to bring a pocket knife to school for the simple reason that if you wanted to hurt someone you have pencils, pens, text books, book bags, and an assortment of other items that could be used as weapons that are more deadly than any pocket knife

    Hi, if it is any help, dont carry a knife to school. At my school, if you even get cuaght carrying even a small water pistol, you get charges files against you. Getting caught with even a small pen-knife may result in suspension. So, best advice i can give, either dont carry a knife, or dont get caught. Later, Jj
