Public Displays of Affection Public displays of affection are not appropriate at the Williamsport Area High School. A simple show of affection such as holding hands is acceptable; however kissing and close physical contact in a public school is not acceptable behavior. The expression of feelings of affection toward others is a personal concern between two individuals and not of others surrounding them. Therefore, good taste and respect for others is the guideline for appropriate behavior. Students who do not follow these guidelines after receiving a warning will be subject to disciplinary action.
