Rules/Policies

Behavior/Consequences: Our classroom and school policy will be discussed at Back-to-School Night.

Uniform: For kindergarten only, students are to wear athletic shoes with Velcro, slip-on style, or laces that can be secured. Mary Jane shoes are allowed on days without P.E. We find that shoelaces are a safety hazard for this age level. If you have not already purchased your child's shoes, please follow the rules for kindergarten footwear when you purchase the next pair of shoes.

School iPad: The iPad contract must be signed by a parent before an iPad can be issued to a student.
