ELEMENTARY SCHOOL CODE OF CONDUCT
Students at the Elementary School pride themselves on treating each other fairly and respectfully!
1. I will respect others, their possessions and school property. Treating others the way you wish to be treated builds character and self-respect.
2. I will follow adult directions and obey school practices and procedures. The Elementary School Staff is here to assist you in every way possible. Cooperating with all adults in our school shows respect and a willingness to help create a positive school environment.
3. I will keep my hands, feet and objects to myself. Resolving conflict through dialog and mediation is the best way to solve a problem. Pushing and shoving shows frustration and a lack of maturity.
4. I will act appropriately so teachers can teach and students can learn!
The students of the Elementary School regularly exhibit positive and respectful behavior and are a joy to work with! We emphasize both the concept and the practice of positive reinforcement for good behavior. However, when infractions do occur, it becomes necessary for students to realize that there are consequences for inappropriate behavior. Consequences for inappropriate behaviors shall be progressive with escalating consequences for repeat offenses.
Major infractions are misbehaviors of a severe nature and necessitate strong measures to address the situation. These infractions include, but are not limited to: fighting, disrespect to adults, stealing and bullying. Principal intervention is warranted in such instances. The following consequences will be considered in response to major infractions:
• Parent/guardian notified and student removed from the classroom setting.
• Excluding student from school until parent/guardian conference is held.
• In-school suspension.
• Out-of-school suspension. A school conference will be required before a child is re-admitted to school for Out-of-School Suspensions.
Detentions: Lunch/Teacher - Students may lose playground privileges and may be assigned, by a teacher or the principal, to a classroom or office to eat lunch. The principal reserves the right to modify, add or delete from the Code of Conduct and its consequences in the best interest of the students.
