Birthdays

We do not encourage birthday parties for individual pupils. As an alternative, for your child's birthday you may wish to consider presenting a book to the school or classroom library in your child's name. Our librarian can suggest titles that are suitable for your child's grade level or reading level.


Cellular Phones and Other Electronic Devices

Any pupil may have a cell phone at school but the device is to be turned off at all times except before and after school. If the device disrupts instruction or an assembly, it shall be confiscated (returned to child or parent after school). Use of the device is not an excuse for tardy arrival. This rules applies to cell phones, smart watches or any other electronic devices.

Dress Code

The way students dress has a direct impact upon their attitude and performance and the attitude and performance of others. In order to maintain a respectful, positive, and productive

educational environment, Round Meadow Elementary School enforces the following dress

code:

(35183.6) and the LVUSD Parent, Student, and Staff Legal Notification Handbook.

"Clothing or appearance that can create a class/school disturbance or distraction that interferes

with the learning environment, or represents a danger to student health or welfare is not

permitted." (p. 22)

  • Students should wear comfortable clothing that allows them to move safely and participate

  • easily in a variety of activities such as art projects, sitting on the floor, and/or strenuous physical activities.
