Pets on School Grounds


Safety Regulations and Procedures policy S50.30 outlines the procedures for the safe handling and care of animals for the protection of everyone in Spokane Public Schools.  These guidelines provide information on safety precautions to prevent personal injury or illness due to animals.  Students and staff members with allergies or sensitivities to animals must be accommodated.  Allowing any animal in the school building or the school grounds is at the principal’s discretion and requires a Visiting Animal Request Form in advance.  Finch school requests that families not bring any pet to the school grounds and discourages pets as class room visitors or show and tell activities.
