									                         SCHOOL RULES – “CHEAT SHEET”



Below are “highlights” from your student handbook. These rules must be followed during
the entire school day in all classrooms and in between classes.

The school day begins at 7:30. If you are on campus before 7:30, you MUST stay in the
cafeteria. The school day ends at 2:40. If you are on campus after 2:40, you MUST be in
the classroom with a teacher or at the front office waiting for a ride home.

   1. Dress Code – Shirt tails must be tucked in if the shirt falls below the belt line.
      Absolutely no head gear (sunglasses, hats, do-rags) may be worn at all on campus
      during the regular school day. Skirts and shorts must be of an appropriate length
      (fall below your fingertips when your hands are by your sides). No tank tops or
      inappropriate logos on garments. Pajamas and bedroom shoes are not appropriate
      school attire. No sagging pants!

   2. Cell Phones/Other Electronics –Students will be allowed to use their cell phones
      during non-instructional times (during lunch and in between classes). STUDENTS
      WOULD ONLY BE ALLOWED TO USE THEIR CELL PHONES DURING
      THESE APPROVED TIMES! If a student breaks the policy, the student will follow
      the same plan of discipline set forth by the Lenoir Co. Board of Education. Do not
      bring any other electronic devices on campus unless instructed to do so by a teacher.
      If you are in violation of cell phone policy, your phone will be taken by the teacher
      and brought to the office.
      - 1st Offense: Student will sign log sheet for returned phone after 2:40
      - 2nd Offense: Parent must sign log sheet for returned phone after 2:40
      - 3rd Offense: Phone will be kept in the office until the end of the school year and
      parent/guardian will sign log sheet on last day of school.

      Phones will not be returned to the student or parent until AFTER the 2:40 bell rings
      (even if you leave early)!

   3. Food – Students CANNOT have food from an outside vendor—all food and drink
      must be consumed in the cafeteria—NOT in the classroom!
      - Student Meal Prices: Breakfast: $1.25 (reduced - $.30)
                             Lunch:    $2.00 (reduced - $.40)

   4. Tardy Policy –Students arriving to school late for the 1st time that day should sign in
      at the office. Tardy Procedures:
      - If you have a note from a doctor, dentist, or court, you will be allowed to go to
      class with a GREEN pass from the office. (Late less than 15 minutes is coded as a
      tardy, more than 15 minutes is coded as an absence.)

      - If you are late due to a late bus, you will be given a WHITE “Late Bus” pass when
      you sign in at the office and will report to class (tardy will NOT count against you).

      - Students who sign in without a doctor, dentist, or court note will be given a RED
      absence note and students will report to ISS until the end of the period and go to
      their next class. Absence will be coded “UNEXCUSED”.
   The Class Period Tardy Procedure will be followed for all tardies.

   NO STUDENTS WILL BE ALLOWED TO ENTER A CLASS LATE WITHOUT
   A NOTE FROM THE OFFICE!

5. Early Release: Notes to leave early must be brought to the office before or by 7:30
   a.m. for verification. In order for a student to leave in the middle of the class or at
   the end of a period, student must have a doctor, dentist, or court appointment card
   which will verify the appointment, or the doctor/dentist may FAX the school
   notification of the appointment. Students may leave school between classes with a
   note from the parent (which will be verified), and when the student returns, he/she
   should bring the note from the doctor/dentist and turn in to the office.

   Students will NOT be released early without verbal parental verification. All
   students leaving early MUST sign out through the main office.

6. Returning from an Absence – All absence notes should be brought to the office
   within FIVE days with the name of person, date of absence, reason for absence,
   telephone number for verification, and signature of parent or legal guardian.
   Absence will be coded EXCUSED or UNEXCUSED by office personnel. Teachers
   will receive an email from NCWISE coordinator listing names of students with
   EXCUSED absences and the date and/or block you were absent. Absences with NO
   notes and notes not received within the allotted five days will automatically be coded
   UNEXCUSED.
