THE EAGLE CODE OF CONDUCT
Freedom students are expected to conduct themselves appropriately at all times. Treat others as you want to be treated. Know that everything you do at school and away from school, reflects on every one of us. If you represent our school as a participant or spectator, you are accountable for your actions. In addition, you are held accountable to the school for your actions from the time you leave home until you return home (including bus stops). Under Virginia law, certain illegal behaviors in the community, particularly if they result in criminal charges, can affect your status as a student at Freedom.
