SHEPHERDSVILLE -- It was probably a rule that most thought had been in effect for years.
However, it wasn’t until recently that the Bullitt County Public School Board ruled that it was illegal to smoke on its properties — including during extra-curricular activities.
For Sarah Smith, the district’s safe and drug free schools coordinator, the new smoke-free policy is long overdue.
“Many people assumed that these policies mean that smoking was prohibited at all times,” said Smith. “This was not the case.”
