school rules

 Students that are assigned to the Opportunity Class will be expected to comply with the following list while attending class, going to or coming from class, or while going to or coming from a district-sponsored activity:
 
  • The parents are responsible for transporting their student, during the student's assigned time in the Opportunity Class.
  • The student shall attend school punctually and regularly.  School instructional hours are from 7:50 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
  • Student supervision starts at 7:20 a.m. and the student must be picked up no later than 12:15 p.m., unless staying after for detention.
  • The student shall not bring skates, skateboards, or scooters to school.
  • The student shall obey all class, school, and district regulations.
  • The student shall follow the district dress code.  Belts are required to prevent sagging pants.  Also, pajamas and slippers are not permitted.
  • Students should not dress or groom in any manner that distracts from the education process.  (ie:  unnatural hair color and facial piercings)
  • The student shall obey promptly all the directions of the teacher and others of authority.
  • The student shall be respectful to teachers, others in authority, and classmates at all times.
  • The student shall refrain from the use of vulgar and profane language.
  • The student shall make an effort to complete all assignments in a timely manner.  If assignments are not completed, it is the students responsibility to take and finish it at home.
  • Weekly progress reports must be signed by a parent or guardian and returned to school on the following Monday or upon the students return to school.
  • The student shall, after being dismissed from class, remain at home or with adult supervision from 12:01 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. on a regular school day.
  • The student shall not loiter around any other school during school hours, attend any school function without prior district permission, or must be under direct parent supervision during attendance.
  • The District is not responsible for personal items brought to school (ie:  cell phones, MP3 players, Gameboys, games, CD's, etc.).  Cell phones and games are to be turned off while at school.  

The Opportunity Class is not designed as a repository for resistant learners.  So students that fail to comply with the above list, face disciplinary actions, possible suspension, or removal from the Opportunity Class.
