North Rock Creek Public School (NRC) joins a family of tobacco-free campuses after adopting a 24/7 tobacco-free school policy Jan. 9, 2012. Effective the first day of the 2012-2013 school year, tobacco in any form will not be used by anyone, anywhere, anytime on school campus. The policy covers all school events after school hours, including outdoor events—24 hours a day, seven days a week. The NRC School Board recognizes the importance of adult role modeling to students and is dedicated to providing a healthy environment for staff, students and visitors. “I believe it is important to set a good example for our young, sometimes impressionable, students,” said North Rock Creek Superintendent Blake Moody.
