ID CARDS
Students are issued picture ID Cards. These cards are the official form of identification at school and must be in your possession at all times. You will not be able to use the school library or go on school trips without them. They must be presented when you enter the building and to staff members upon request. Lost or misplaced ID cards must be replaced immediately

 

DISCIPLINE
Every student will receive a copy of the Citywide Standards of Conduct and Uniform Disciplinary Measures (the Chancellor\'s Discipline Code) at the beginning of the school year. The teacher, the student and the principal can handle most school problems. Occasionally, parents will be involved. As part of the school program, students will learn how to handle conflict without violence.

ATTENDANCE
Regular attendance is necessary for academic success. The only legal reasons for absences are: personal or family illness, death in the family, religious observance, required court appearances and school approved supervised trips. Students who are absent for any reason must bring an absence note upon returning to school. If the absence was caused by illness, the note should be written and signed by the attending physician.

LATENESS
One of the most frequent reasons for lack of success in courses is the student\'s own failure to get to the class on time. Punctuality is extremely important to every youngster\'s progress. Unexcused absences take away from valuable learning time and are serious offences. Repeated lateness to school or to a subject class will require a parent conference and may result in detention or other disciplinary action.

ILLNESS
Students who become ill during the school day may not go home except with a parent or guardian. Every student must have an \"EMERGENCY CONTACT CARD,\" with a parent\'s home and work telephone numbers on file in the office. The name, address and telephone number of a neighbor should also be included on the EMERGENCY CONTACT CARD. The school must be informed of the parent\'s wishes; for example, in serious cases, should we bring the student to the nearest hospital? [Parents must wait for the students and pick him/her up at the hospital.]

MEDICAL EXCUSE FROM PHYSICAL EDUCATION
Regular attendance and participation in physical education classes is required of all students. A student may be excused from participating in activities which could endanger his/her health under written recommendation of his/her physician. If the restrictions of activities is to be for a prolonged period, the physician must specify the exact duration of the restriction, the medical reasons for the restrictions, and the types of activities that would be restricted or eliminated. Alternate work or assignment will be given to the student during that period.

THE LIBRARY
Students are encouraged to use the library room  for research and quiet reading. There are special rules for borrowing books, reference materials, magazines and reserved books. Learning the use of the library and observing its rules helps develop good citizenship.

DISCIPLINE AND SECURITY
