Our School is committed to the growth of a secure, caring, learning community that fosters mutual respect , individual development, citizenship and the capacity for progressive life-long learning for all.

Respect

One of the most important aspects of education is discipline which should eventually be internalized.  Discipline is the training that develops self-control, orderliness, efficiency and character.

Basic to all discipline is the principal of respect - respect for one's self, for others and for one's own property and that of others.

ROLE OF THE PARENTS:
The primary right and duty to educate rest with parents.  In the home, more than any other place, parents teach by their example, reverence and respect for the dignity of others.  They are also tremendously influential in cultivating among their children the virtues of love of neighbor, justice, generosity, loyalty, industry and honesty.


LATENESS:

Children arriving after the normal time must be signed in by parents and will receive a late pass to hand to their respective class teacher.

 

ATTENDANCE:
Regularity of attendance and punctuality are important in the academic progress of the child. Any assignments missed are the sole responsibility of the student, who is expected to either ask a homework buddy or make time to ask the individual teacher's during an arranged time that is convenient to both student and teacher, for missed work. Students are not to interrupt a class to inquire about work they missed.


In all cases, the school office should be notified by the parent before 9:00 AM if a student is to be absent that day.   Student absent without notifying will be considered truant.


A written excuse from the parent of an absent student must be presented to the teacher when the student returns to school.  These become part of the attendance file.


No student may leave school during the school day unless accompanied by a parent or guardian who must report to the school office.  In the case of a student's illness while in school, the school will call the telephone number listed on the "Emergency Contact Card".  If the nature of the emergency requires immediate medical attention, the principal or the teacher will call the Emergency Medical Service.  If there are any changes on the "Emergency Contact Card" , the parent or guardian is responsible to notify the school in writing immediately.

The parent or guardian must sign the student out before the student leaves the building.  This record will be kept on file and is considered a legal document.
