Attendance Policy

Regular attendance is essential for student learning and progress.  Students lose out on critical instruction and interactions when they are absent or are not in school for the entire day.

  • Late arrivals and early dismissals are highly discouraged.  
  • Please coordinate your family vacations when school is not in session.    
  • We request that medical and dental appointments be scheduled after school hours, if at all possible.  
  • If students are ill and unable to attend school, please notify our office the morning of the absence.

Dress Code

Children should arrive at school appropriately dressed for the weather of the day. All healthy children are expected to go outside for recess and before eating lunch except when weather conditions are extreme. If you desire that your child be allowed to stay inside at lunch due to illness, please inform the teacher of your request in a note.

  1. All children should dress modestly, and appropriate for the weather.
  2. No short-shorts or biker shorts. Knee shorts are O.K.
  3. “Grubby” clothing or clothing containing vulgarities, profanities, obscenities, or advertisements for alcohol, tobacco, or drugs are never acceptable. Clothing which is ragged, tattered, or deliberately distracting in appearance must be avoided.
  4. Hats or other headgear should not be worn indoors.
  5. Tank tops or bare midriff shirts or blouses are unacceptable.
  6. Flip-flops are not permitted.

 

RESPECT ADULTS–this means swearing or talking back.  Miss 3 recesses–LRR.

 

NO HATS/NO HOODS in the building of any kind–this means anytime time in the school except on “theme” days or Halloween.  Hats must be removed and put in backpack.  They will be taken away if they are in the halls or lunchroom.

 

NO PHONES OR SKATEBOARDS–these should be taken away and parents have to come get them from the front office

 

NO RUNNING IN THE HALLS–ask any student who is running to go back and walk

 

TALKING IN HALLS

 

NO FIGHTING, SNOWBALLS OR TACKLE FOOTBALL–students need to be sent to Mr. Brooks

 

NO SHORT-SHORTS or REVEALING TOPS–NO HEELIES—NO FLIP FLOPS—students need to wear a Bonneville shirt from Dorothy or call home for change of clothes. (Classroom teachers are in charge of enforcing this.)
NO UNNATURAL HAIR COLOR (use your discretion – only address if it becomes a distraction)

Safe School Policy

Student safety is a high priority at our school.

Parking Lot Procedures

To further ensure safety, the driveway on the south side has been divided into two lanes.  The lane closest to the school will be used for a student pick up and drop off lane all the way down the parking lot.  Please pull all the way forward in this lane before stopping to drop off or pick up your child.  By pulling forward, you help the flow of traffic and allow other parents from the street to be able to pull in for the picking up or dropping off of students.

To help alleviate traffic congestion in front of the school and in the south parking lot, you may opt to pick your student up behind the school in the church parking lot.

Kindergarten teachers have been instructed to walk their class down the sidewalk to help children to get into their cars from the sidewalk.  This will allow for parents in the long pick up lane to wait in their cars for their children, and it will be much safer than having students enter the parking lot where it can be unsafe.

The lane closest to 800 West and between the parking stalls and drop off/pick up lane will be a “drive through” lane only.  You can drive through the parking lot in this lane to locate a parking stall or to travel to the church parking lot to park, should parking not be available in the school’s parking lot.  This is also the lane used to pull out of the drop off/pick up lane when you are ready to exit.

Please avoid leaving your car parked and unattended in either lane to help keep traffic flowing smoothly and alleviating the possibility of student becoming hurt or injured.  If you need to speak with a teacher or have other school business, please park in the parking stalls and come into the school.

**Please drive slowly and proceed with caution through the school parking lot at all times.  Thank you.**
