STANDARD RULES & REGULATIONS
School ID Badges
For safety and security reasons, the school ID is mandatory and must be worn and must be visible at all times when on campus. The ID must be clipped on the upper half of the uniform shirt. ID’s may not be clipped on the bottom hem of the shirt where it is difficult to see. Wearing the ID on a lanyard around the neck is convenient and effective. One ID is provided at no charge during the first week of school. Students are not allowed to deface their school ID. Replacement ID’s may be purchased for $5.00. Replacement clips are $0.25. Failure to have your ID or failure to have your ID visible, will result in Chapter 19 violation and consequences will be issued.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Students are required to have their ID for scanning of the bar code for the Meal Tracker lunch system. If they do not have their barcode, which is located on their IDs they will NOT be able to purchase meals. Please make sure your child brings their IDs daily.
Business Office & Use of Telephone
Students are reminded that the school office and telephone are for business purposes. Students should not loiter in or around the office. The office will give permission for students to call parents only in emergency situations.
Change of Address or Telephone
In the event of a change in a student’s address or telephone number or any other demographic information, parents are required to notify the school, as soon as possible and update your child's record.

Gum and Food
Absolutely no gum chewing on campus. Eating is not allowed in classrooms and the library unless special arrangements have been made with appropriate adults. Students who eat snacks on campus must dispose of all litter in the trash receptacles provided.
Lost and Found
The lost and found department, located in the school security office, is for the convenience of persons who have lost or found items on the school campus. Losses due to theft should be reported to the administration immediately.
No public school student shall be excluded from participation in, denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination on account of the student’s race, color, national origin, sex, religion, or handicap condition under any program or activity of the Department of Education. If a student feels he/she has been discriminated against in one of the department’s educational programs or activities, he/she is encouraged to bring the matter to the attention of the school principal for discussion and resolution. If the matter cannot be resolved at this level he/she is encouraged to make full use of the Department of Education’s Civil Rights Complaint Procedure for Students and file a written complaint with the district superintendent’s office. Upon receiving the discrimination complaint, a District Complaint Board will hear and decide on the merits of the complaint in a prompt and fair manner. Students may request a copy of the Civil Rights Complaint Procedure for Students from the principal.
Off-Limits/No Loitering Areas
The off-limits areas are: parking lots, county park (except for the basketball court and playing field next to the K-building), pavilion, anywhere outside the fence line, F-building lanai and stairway, behind all portables, F-building, and remote trees, and all second floor lanais. These areas are designated off-limits for student safety as we want students to be visible on campus. Students are not to loiter in the restrooms, the administration building, or any area painted with diagonal lines. The administration reserves the right to declare any area off-limits during the school year. During the lunch period, students may be in the cafeteria or library or in the designated play areas, including the courts and large grassy areas. They may not loiter or hang out by the classrooms when other students are in Advisory classes. Fire laws forbid students from sitting or blocking stairwells and walkways. The administration reserves the right to declare any area a "no loitering" area during the school year.
Before a student can participate in or attend special events and co-curricular/extra-curricular activities sponsored in full or in part by the school, all outstanding obligations (student government dues, detentions, classroom textbooks, overdue library books or fines, outstanding uniforms on-loan, fund-raising money, etc.) must be cleared.
Personal belongings, such as band instruments, handbags, valuables, eReaders, etc., are the responsibility of the individual student. Do not leave personal items unattended as the school is not responsible for loss or theft.
Planner Pass and Call Slips
All students leaving the classroom during class time must be holding an official pass. The official pass is the student planner with the hall pass section fully completed and signed by a teacher. If a student is called out of class, he/she must have an authorized Call Slip. Students who are out of class without passes or call slips will receive disciplinary consequences. Students must attend to the specific business and report directly back to class. Students who need to move from one location to another while classes are in session must do so without disturbance so that learning is not interrupted for others. Students who are out of class without passes or call slips may receive school level consequences.
Public Displays of Affection (PDA)
Some middle school students have matured to the point of having girlfriends and boyfriends. This is a natural process on the way to adulthood. However, the school prohibits open and public displays of affection. Students who are displaying their affections will be counseled, and appropriate consequences will be determined by an administrator. Behaviors may include but are not limited to: holding hands, hugging and kissing.
Fire laws forbid students from sitting or blocking the stairwells and walkways. Running is only permitted on the grassy or play areas.
The school is a public institution and no one may damage, destroy, or deface its equipment, furniture, grounds, and buildings. If anyone damages, destroys or deface any school property, they will be prosecuted. Graffiti is considered vandalism and violators will be prosecuted. Damaged, lost, or stolen school books (including the student planner) and supplies must be paid for by the student to whom the items were issued.
Transferring to Another School
As soon as it is evident that a transfer to another school is necessary, students must bring a written notice from home. The school clerical staff will prepare the Request for Transfer form. The student will then circulate this form to all teachers. Upon completion, the student will receive a release if all school obligations have been met.
Parents are encouraged to visit our campus and classrooms. Please coordinate visits with our PCNC, Mrs. LeeAnn LaFortune, at (808)305-1289. Students from other schools are not permitted to visit the school apart from an organized visitation. All visitors are asked to follow our Standard Dress Code and always report to the office first. This helps to ensure the safety of our students.
