Policies & Procedures


Student Conduct and Expectations

"Do the right thing, even when nobody is watching."

Appearance/Dress Code

Parents and students are responsible for ensuring that student dress and appearance conform to dress code standards. Students who are not in compliance with the Patch MS Dress Code will not be allowed to attend classes.

Final determination of acceptable dress and grooming rests with the administration. Please review the full Dress code policy outlined in the handbook with your student to ensure compliance.


It is DoDDS's policy that discipline be maintained consistently and appropriately. We encourage
students to grow in self-control, develop a sense of regard for fellow students, and have pride in their school community. Students have the responsibility for conducting themselves in a manner that does not violate the rights of other people. Along with staff, students share the responsibility of
developing a caring climate within the school that is conducive to productive learning.

Additional information about student rights and responsibilities
in DoDEA can be found on the
DoDEA homepage .

Arrival at School

School hours are 0800 - 1435.  Students should not arrive earlier than 7:50 AM . Your cooperation in this matter will greatly enhance the safety and security of our students. Students arriving late will need to stop by the Main Office to get a tardy slip.

Visitor Guidelines

As a security precaution and to minimize class disruptions, we ask visitors to ALWAYS report first to reception when visiting the school. All visitors must stop by the Main Office prior to visiting a classroom.

Parents are always welcome and encouraged to visit classrooms and teachers. We do, however, request that parents notify the teacher a day or so in advance of any planned visit.
