Safety & Security
No skateboarding, roller skating, or roller blading is permitted on State roads, the tennis courts or in any of the Academy buildings.
In the spirit of safety and in compliance with the Maine State Helmet Law, students are expected to wear a helmet anytime they are using a bicycle, a skateboard, a scooter or roller blades on campus. Helmets are also required for alpine skiing or snowboarding. Failure to do so may result in confiscation of the means of transportation.
Students are not permitted on any of the Academy building roofs.
No objects are to be thrown or dropped out of windows or down stairwells.
No signs, flags or decor may be placed in dormitory windows.
Fire drills, held periodically, are important and necessary.
All students and faculty will be expected to treat them with the utmost seriousness. The school will receive fire drill orientation early
in the fall trimester. Any tampering with fire extinguishers, sprinklers, heat sensors, smoke detectors or any fire preventive equipment
is a serious offense and will be referred to the Dean of Students for disciplinary action.
Environmental Protection Agency 40 CFR, Part 763
- On 30 October 1987 the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) promulgated the Final Rule and Notice for Asbestos Containing Materials in Schools. It requires that all schools, public and private, undergo an extremely thorough inspection by accredited inspectors, submit a written Management Plan for control of those materials to the State of Maine by 12 October 1988, and commence implementation of the Plan by 9 July 1989.
- Hebron Academy has complied with this requirement to the letter and spirit of the law. One of its many requirements is the notification of building occupants, employees and outside workers engaged by the school, that asbestos was found in various areas of our buildings. This section fulfills that requirement.
- This plan is available for inspection at the Business Office of the School Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Copies may be obtained by written request at a cost of 25 cents per page.
Because pesticides pose risks, the school uses an alternative approach to merely applying pesticides. Control of insects, rodents and weeds at our school focuses on making the school buildings and grounds an unfavorable place for pests to live and breed. Through maintenance and cleaning, we will reduce or eliminate available food and water sources and hiding places for the pests. We will also routinely monitor the school area to detect pest problems and prevent the pests from becoming established. Some techniques we will use include pest monitoring, sanitation, pest exclusion, proper food storage, pest removal and, as a last resort, pesticides. This holistic approach is often called integrated pest management (IPM).
Parents, legal guardians, and school staff will be notified on specific pesticide applications made at the school. Notification will be given at least five days before planned pesticide applications. Pesticide application notices will also be posted in school and on school grounds. Notification need not be given for pesticide applications recognized by law to pose little or no risk of exposure to children and staff.
The school also keeps records of prior pesticide applications and information about the pesticides used. You may review these records, a copy of the school’s integrated pest management policy and the Pesticides in Schools regulation (CMR 01-206 Chapter 27) by contacting our IPM coordinator, Tim Scammon, at 207-966-2100, ext. 256.
