Dress Code Policy
Although we are no longer a uniform school, uniform dress may still be required for any group trips out of the building for means of safety and representation, and of course students are encouraged to continue wearing any uniform apparel they have previously acquired to show pride in their school community. Furthermore, students will still be required to comply with the Dress Code Policy below:
Cell Phone Policy
Students are permitted to bring cell phones into the school building and have them on their person, however, cell phones should never be visible in class.
Designated storage and charging stations will be provided in each classroom. Students have the option to either keep their phones away on their person or in the designated area in the classroom. PLEASE NOTE: The school is not responsible for a student’s cell phone in the designated area or otherwise. Students are still encouraged to store cell phones and other valuables in their lockers throughout the day.
If a student is seen displaying a cell phone in class for any reason (regardless of intent), that will be recorded by the relevant staff member as a violation of the cell phone policy
Three violations of the school cell phone policy by a student will result in the student's cell phone being collected upon their arrival into the building, stored for the duration of the instructional day and given back to the student at the end of the day, for a total of three consecutive school days.
Upon the fourth violation of the cell phone policy, a student’s phone will be confiscated until a parent meeting is held to address the ongoing issue.
If a student continues to violate the cell phone policy, additional disciplinary and/or restorative measures may be taken as per the Citywide Behavioral Expectations.
In the interest of ensuring student safety, we have instituted a new policy regarding the issuance of Early Excuse Passes during the school day. Any student who is leaving school during school hours (from 8:15 – 2:35 Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays; from 8:15 – 3:15 on Wednesdays) must be picked up by a guardian listed on their blue Emergency Contact Card. We ask that, whenever possible, appointments be scheduled for the morning, so that students do not have to leave school in the middle of the day. Please have the office where the appointment was held send your child to school with a note excusing their lateness.
