Bringing Items to School
According to the Education Code, students may bring cell phones on campus. However, cell phones must remain OFF during school hours. Students may use cell phones before or after school hours only. The first time a student uses a cell phone during school hours, the phone will be confiscated by the teacher and returned at the end of the day. The second time a student is caught using a cell phone during school hours, the phone will be confiscated by the principal and the student’s parents will need to come to school to pick up the phone.
With the adoption of the district and school Wellness Policies, all food items served at classroom parties must receive prior approval from the classroom teacher. The teacher will use the guidelines set forth in the policy and state nutrition laws to determine if a food item is acceptable for classroom consumption. A copy of the guidelines is available in the office.
In accordance with District Policy, homemade or home-baked goods may not be served to students in the classroom. This is also in accordance with the new District & School Wellness Policy.
Money & Valuables
Children should bring money to school to meet lunch needs or for other school approved purposes. Students should not bring valuable articles. Please make sure that the student’s name is permanently marked on backpacks, jackets, hats, lunch boxes and any other items brought to school.
Party invitations may not be distributed at school as it creates low selfesteem for those who are excluded.
These shall not be brought to school except with the teacher’s permission to “share”. They shall remain in the classroom unless specific approval is obtained from the principal. Trading cards of any kind, hard balls, marbles, water pistols, slingshots and other dangerous or nuisance toys will not be allowed. No radios, CD/cassette players, game boys or other electronics are to be brought to school at anytime, unless a specific day has been designated for them.
