Policies & Procedures

ARRIVAL AT SCHOOL

Students are to arrive no earlier than 0750. Students are not permitted in any school building before school hours unless they are under direct supervision for a special activity. Supervision of students does not begin until 0745. Parents will be notified if their child continues to arrive at school too early. Should the problem persist, the chain of command will be notified. Your cooperation in this matter will greatly enhance the safety and security of our students.

Dismissal

We need to know where your child should be at the end of each day. If you need to make a change please send a note with the date on it to your child's teacher. You may also come in and write a note at the office. In the event of an emergency and you need to call the school to change your child's destination after school, please contact the main office prior to 1415 if possible.  This will help to insure the message is given to your child's teacher in a timely manner.

Bus Riders - Children riding the bus must have passes visible for the drivers. If you wish your child to take another bus home with a friend, or to a babysitter, you MUST make arrangements with the School Bus Office (SBO) ahead of time. Please contact at 09645-917-9229 Ext.5040.

Walkers and Parent Pick-up - Parents should make clear to their children and to their children's teacher which door they will routinely leave from. If the routine changes, parents need to notify the teacher in writing ahead of time. Children need to know ahead of time exactly where to meet each other and/or parents to walk home. Siblings, friends and/or parents that walk home together from the back, will need to meet at the back of the school. From there they should use the sidewalk through the playground. Children that are monitored by parent(s)/caregiver(s) may use the playground after school. If children are not monitored, they need to go home immediately after school ends. If children are to be picked up by parents (in a vehicle) they should meet at the drop off point in front of the school. You may greet your children on the sidewalk in front of the tree, which is directly in front of the main school doors. Waiting in front of the main doors when school is released is a safety hazard to you and our students. Please remain behind the painted hands line. Thanks for your assistance in getting our children home safely.

Students are not permitted in any school building after school hours unless they are under direct supervision for a special activity.

DISMISSALBEHAVIOR AND DISCIPLINE
School-Wide Discipline Plan

Our goal is that each of our students will develop and maintain positive self-discipline, which is marked by self-control and an understanding of appropriate standards of conduct. As children mature, they become increasingly capable of judging accurately which conduct is appropriate in any given situation. The guidance of parents and teachers helps students develop the self-discipline and understanding required for students to conduct themselves in a manner that will bring credit to themselves, their parents, school, and community. We very strongly believe in the rights of the other students to be able to learn in an environment that is free of distractions from their peers.

Discipline will be maintained at an appropriate level that will result in:
1. a safe and secure environment for all
2. growth of the student in self control
3. high regard and respect for all
4. pride in the school and community

We expect all students of Netzaberg Elementary School to abide by the rules and regulations as established by the administration, faculty and Student Council. School rules apply at all school functions. Please see the entire discipline plan in the full version of our Parent/Student Handbook.

DRESS CODE

Students are expected to report to school dressed in clothing that is appropriate for the activities in which they will be participating in on any given day. Revealing clothing like tank tops, short shorts, spandex shorts, halter tops, strapless dresses, bare midriff tops, short skirts, low rise pants, or any other garment that reveals undergarments are not appropriate wear for school. Shorts and skirts should be no shorter than fingertip length. Baggy pants, worn without a belt, are not permitted because the student cannot walk or run freely while maintaining good balance. Shower shoes, flip-flops, spiked heels, skate shoes (such as Heelys), and any other shoes that could be considered unsafe when worn in the school environment (i.e. P.E., recess, stairs) are also considered inappropriate. Clothing and jewelry that contain inappropriate pictures, logos, or make reference to sexual harassment, drugs, alcohol, tobacco, or weapons are inappropriate for school and will not be worn. Hats or head coverings are not authorized in classrooms or assembly areas.
