Maintaining discipline and an orderly climate in our school is essential for teaching and learning to occur. We ask that parents support and assist us in this important area. We ask that proper behavior be taught at home to reduce the occurrence of misbehavior at school.

Each student has the right to learn as much as he/she can. We will not permit any student to prevent another student from learning. We will not permit any student to engage in behavior that is not in his/her best interest.

Class rules may vary among classrooms. However, all rules will be clearly stated and will be fairly and consistently enforced. Rules and consequences for each classroom are posted.

We believe that all students can behave. By the time we make the decision to contact parents, your child will have made several choices not to behave.

The following are general rules of conduct we expect all students to observe:

  • Keep hands, feet, and objects to yourself.

  • No running or pushing in the building.

  • No toys, including radios, tape players, etc. (Exception: Sharing time with permission of the teacher in primary grades.)

  • Do not bring gum, candy, or bottled/canned drinks to school.

  • No tobacco products are allowed.

  • Knives will not be permitted at school. If knives are found, they will be taken and returned only to the parent.

  • Profane language or fighting is expressly prohibited.

  • Respect the property of others.

  • Always show proper respect to staff members and visitors.
