The classes are separated by rank (beginners and ad- vanced) and students meet twice a week. Class meets Tuesdays and Thursdays, in the Oviatt gym or multi- purpose room. Beginners meet from 6-6:30 p.m. and ad- vanced students meet from 6:30-7:30 p.m. (Times can vary.) We also offer a Little Dragon program designed for children ages five to seven. Little Dragons meet twice a week. This program is run concurrently with the begin- ning class. All programs consist of hand and foot tech- niques, forms, self-defense, lessons and instructions on topics such as respect, self-discipline and perseverance. Competition is also available for those students who are interested. Competition teaches sportsmanship, gives confidence and allows the students to use the skills they have learned in class. Families are strongly encouraged to join and train Concluded p. 10 SCHOOL SUPERINTENDENT WULF Concluded from p. 1 to bring the weapon onto school grounds, such as for purposes of conducting an instructional program re- garding firearms. Moreover, Iowa Code section 724.7, as amended, spe- cifically states that a permit is not valid where pos- sessing or carrying a firearm is prohibited by state or federal law. Under federal law, it is generally unlawful to possess a firearm in a "school zone," subject to ex- ceptions similar to those in the Iowa Code described above. 18 U.S.C. 922(q)(2). "School zone" includes the grounds of any public or private elementary or sec- ondary school, as well as all public property within 1,000 feet of such a school. 18 U.S.C. 921(a)(25).[1] In summary, the new "concealed carry" law in Iowa does not change anything for K-12 schools. It was gen- erally unlawful to bring a gun on school grounds be- fore, and it still is today--whether or t tde person has a permit. -Ahlers Law Firm As we understand more from Newtown, we will change our protocols in response.
