Delaney Elementary Cafeteria Policy
James F. Delaney Elementary School has a closed lunchroom policy for visitors.

and take their student out to lunch by checking them out through the office or they may
bring lunch and have a picnic on the tables provided on the playground.
All students are expected to eat lunch. If for some reason a student is not to
eat lunch, please notify the student’s teacher in writing.
Kennedale ISD participates in the Federal Lunch Program. If you feel that your
child may qualify, please call for a lunch form to be completed and returned to the
All students will receive a lunch card. Advance payment decreases the chance that
your child will lose his/her lunch money. Kennedale’s Web Store, RevTrak may be
used to check your child’s account, or to add funds by debit or credit card. Please
allow 24 hours for money to post to the account. The website is
kennedaleisd.revtrak.net. Students are not allowed to call home for lunches or
money. We expect all students to eat lunch. If you do not require your child to eat
lunch, you must send written notice to the office. Free and reduced price lunches
are available. Applications for the lunch program are available in the school office.

6. The teacher should not share any information about students with parents.
7. Parents should sit in an area designated by the teacher so that the parent can
observe the class and not attract the attention of the students.
8. Classroom observations are not appropriate times to have a conference. If
specific information is needed from the teacher parents should schedule a
conference with the teacher.
9. Instructional time is valuable and parent/teacher discussions should not take
place during observations.
It is very important that the office be notified when you have any changes in your child’s
registration information. This information includes changes in: phone numbers,
addresses, emergency contact persons, and persons listed on the temporary release
section of the registration information. Your child will only be released to persons listed
on his/her registration card.
If it becomes necessary to withdraw your child from school, please give us at least a one
day notice. Only a parent or legal guardian may withdraw a student from
school. A certain amount of paperwork is involved and in order to check your child out
properly, it does take time. A parent must come to the office to sign a withdrawal form,
check to see if the student is clear of outstanding fees, and that all books are returned.
Students have full responsibility for textbooks issued to them. Textbooks which are lost
or damaged must be paid for before any school records can be released to students,
parents, or other schools. Students are required to keep textbooks covered at all times.
When it is necessary to send money to school, please enclose it in a marked envelope.
If possible, please send a check or correct change. Teachers will not be responsible for
keeping up with the student’s money.

Texas public schools do not carry accident and/or liability insurance on students enrolled
in public schools. This is in accordance with Texas Education Code
21.906. Student insurance is ordered by a private, licensed agent who represents a
reputable company and who has received school board approval. Various options and
prices are available. This is an optional program for the student and the
parent/guardian. The cost of the insurance is the responsibility of the parent/guardian.
Complete information on the insurance will be sent home during the first few weeks of
Lost and Found Lockers

found will be placed in the Lost and Found Lockers. If your child has an item missing,
please have them check in their classroom and then in the Lost and Found Lockers.
Unclaimed items will be donated to charity.
When field trips are taken they will be a part of the instructional program. Field trips will
be well planned and only those trips which are an extension of classroom activities will
be taken. No child is permitted to go on a field trip away from the school campus
without the written permission from the child’s parents or legal guardian. Chaperones
must have a background check before attending field trip. Background check forms are
available online on the Delaney Website under the registration tab.
Bad Weather Information
For altered schedules or possible closing of school during inclement weather, please
listen to the following stations:
WBAP, WFAA, KERA, KPLX, or KXAS Channel 5
In order to ensure the safety of the children during an emergency, we participate in several
types of emergency drills. These are to prepare our students for fires, inclement weather, and
other situations where safety is a concern. These drills are practiced randomly throughout the
year. We take great care to keep a calm atmosphere at all times during these drills. If your
child should ask you questions at home, please assure them that school is a very safe place and
remind your child to always follow directions quickly during these drills.
The bus driver has the same authority over the child while on the bus as the classroom teacher
has while the child is at school. The bus driver is in complete charge of his/her bus and its
passengers and is charged with the responsibility of maintaining discipline.

Transportation of Students/Leaving Campus
If your student needs to go home any other way than the way he/she normally goes
home, they will need a note signed by that parent each time explaining the change.
Example: If the student rides the bus normally – he/she will always be put on the bus
unless a signed note is sent noting the change. Please make sure your child knows how
he/she is to go home each day before he/she comes to school.
Parents must be present in the office before a child is called to leave the classroom.
Students will not be called to the office to wait, due to the loss of instructional time.
Early Dismissal of Students
Students may not be picked up in the front office after 2:30 p.m. for any
reason. If your child has an appointment, you will need to make sure that you sign
them out at the office no later than 2:30 p.m. We will not dismiss students from the
front office for any reason after 2:30. Students will be dismissed to be a bus/daycare
rider, car rider, or as a walker.
The following regulations were established by the 74th Legislature in the summer
A. S.B.25. 092-a A student may not be given credit for a class unless the student
in attendance for at least 90% of the days the class is offered.
B. S.B. 25.092-b An attendance committee shall be established on each
order to hear petitions for class credit by students who are in attendance
fewer than the number of days required in S.B. 1
C. S.B. 25.092-d If a student is denied credit by the attendance committee,
guardian may appeal the decision to the Board of Trustees
D. S.B. 25.087-b A school district shall excuse a child from attending school for
purpose of observing religious holy days, including traveling for that
before the absence if the parent/guardian submits a written request prior to
E. S.B. 25.087-b-2 A school district shall excuse a student for a temporary
resulting from health care professional appointments if he/she begins
classes or returns to school on the day of the appointment. Verification of
the doctor’s visit must be submitted to the office the day of the appointment
or the following day.
Documentation of Absences
A. S.B. 25.0087.1 Excused medical absences if the student commences or ends
the day at school and brings a medical note to school upon return. A medical
excuse must be on file in the office for a student to be excused from
PE/recess for more than 1 day.
B. When returning to school after an absence, a student must bring a note
signed by the parent, which describes the reason for the absence. If a note
is not provided to the school the day the student returns, the absence will be
recorded as unexcused. If the reason given for any absence is suspect,
medical verification may be required. If medical verification of the absence
is not provided, the absence will be recorded as unexcused. When a
student’s absence for personal illness exceeds 4 consecutive days, the
student or parent shall present a statement from a physician or health clinic
verifying the illness or other condition requiring the student’s extended
absence from school (FEC Local). For additional information refer to the
KISD Conduct Handbook.
C. S.B. 25.087.1 Considers absences for illness, family death or emergency, or
natural disaster as excused, and the bill further reads, “a written note from
the legal guardian must accompany the student upon his/her return.” If a
note is not received upon the student’s return to school, the student’s
absence will be considered unexcused. Students shall be given a reasonable
time to make up work missed due to an absence. For the purpose of this
subsection we shall define “reasonable time” as - the number of days absent
is equal to the number of days the student has to make up the work for
100% credit (i.e. 2 days absent=2 days to make up work).
D. Parents are asked to call the school office by 9:00 a.m. the day of the
student’s absence. If a parent/guardian does not call the office to inform
them of the student’s absence, the attendance clerk will call your home or
business to verify the absence. This morning call does not replace the need
for a parent and/or doctor’s note upon the student’s return to school.
E. If a child is absent from school for two consecutive days, a parent may
request the child’s assignments. Please contact the teacher by 9:00 a.m.
and the assignments will be ready for pick-up at 3:15 p.m. the same day.
Students arriving late or leaving early will be counted tardy for the day. Consistent with
District Policy, 5 tardies will equal 1 absence. If your child has an appointment and has
to arrive late or leave early, then please send a medical note to the attendance office so
that the tardy can be removed from their attendance record.
Students will not be eligible for perfect attendance if they have a significant number of
tardies that would equal an absence.
Delaney will have Tardy Parties at the end of each six weeks to celebrate those students
who have no tardies. Arriving late or leaving early will equate to a tardy. There will be
no exceptions for any tardy unless it has been excused due to the parent or guardian
providing a medical note to explain the tardy. No handwritten note will excuse a
Report cards with each student’s grades or performance and absences in each class or subject
are issued to parents at least once every 6 weeks.
At the end of the first three weeks of a grading period parents will be given a written
unsatisfactory progress report if their child’s performance in any course (in English language
arts, mathematics, science, or social studies) is near or below 70, or is below the expected level
Questions about grade calculation should first be discussed with the teacher; if the question is
not resolved, the student or parent may request a conference with the principal in accordance
The report card or unsatisfactory progress report will state whether tutorials are required for a
student who receives a grade lower than 70 in a class or subject.
Report cards and unsatisfactory progress reports must be signed by the parent and should be
returned to the school within 3 days.
Specials grades (Art, Music, PE) and Conduct
These subjects will be graded on an E, S, N, or U scale. A student who receives an E or S in
these subjects will be eligible for A or B Honor roll depending on their grades in their academic
courses. A grade of N or U in these subjects will mean that the student will not be
eligible for A or B Honor roll.
A Honor Roll= students working on grade level and making no grade below a 90
B Honor Roll= students working on grade level and making no grade level below an 80
Academic Achievement Card- Students working below grade level with no grades below
90- A or 80-B
Please see teacher for the grade level grading policy.
Teacher will assign homework to students in the Delaney Elementary School to reinforce skills
and information already learned in class, not to exceed 45 minutes total from all subjects. The
homework is to prepare students for upcoming classes and to teach independence, self-discipline
The parents are to be informed of the days to expect homework by the classroom teacher. We
ask that parents establish homework as top priority for our children. Parents need to provide a
quiet environment to work, establish a daily homework time, and provide positive support when
homework is completed.
SPECIAL STUDENT POPULATIONS
A. STUDENTS WITH SPECIAL NEEDS
J. F. Delaney will service students using the Inclusive School Model. An
inclusive school is one where EVERYONE belongs, where the needs of all
members are met, and where people care about and support each other.
There are several important components to an inclusive school. Special
education in an inclusive school is a SERVICE, not a location. Students must
meet placement criteria in order to receive special education services.
1. Learning Disabilities
Inclusion at Delaney Elementary School means that students with learning
disabilities will receive the support they need to be successful WITHIN the
general education classroom as often as possible. This support might come
from special and general educators, instructional assistants, the counselor,
and peer assistants. The teachers will make sure the student’s curriculum
and environment is appropriately modified.
2. Speech Therapy
A speech therapist is available for students assessed with articulation/oral
J. F. Delaney has the services of a certified school counselor who is
available to aid or assist in any kind of situation that interferes with a
student’s academic success. This service includes: referral services to
community agencies, individual and group counseling for students having
academic, behavior, and/or attendance problems. Students who are being
treated by other mental health professionals outside of school will not
qualify for on-campus counseling. Our school counselor is not equipped to
handle intensive individual counseling in the school setting. If your child is
in need of intensive therapy, you will be advised to seek this support from
an outside source.
4. Gifted and Talented Education / Challenge Lab
Delaney has a full-time G/T instructor to serve the educational needs of the
academically gifted students. Qualifying students leave their homeroom
classroom and meet with the G/T teacher for a designated time each week.
The Challenge Lab is available to all students who may need enrichment or
higher level thinking activities and have shown mastery of classroom
5. Dual Language Program
Delaney has a Dual Language Program in grades K-3rd. Students who meet
the criteria will be provided services through this program. All grade levels
have ESL teachers qualified to service ESL students in their classrooms.
6. Section 504 Program
Delaney will provide support and accommodations to students who meet the
criteria of having a handicap or medical diagnosis that substantially limits
one or more life activities. The school counselor is the 504 coordinator at
In accordance with Senate Bill 474 which states, “Elementary schools may not serve or provide
access for students to Foods of Minimal Nutritional Value(FMNV) at any time anywhere on school
premises during the school day.” Also, a school day is defined as running from the start of
breakfast until the last bell of the day; therefore, that means that FMNV will be permitted during
after school activities only. With this piece of legislation, we will no longer be allowed to
serve any kind of food item for birthday celebrations. What we suggest is that if you
would like to provide something to celebrate your child’s birthday that you put together goodie
bags with pencils, stickers, erasers, etc… Please send a bag for each student in the class, and
the teachers can pass those out to students at the end of the day.
PTA parties are the only events that allow us to serve food items to students. We are only
allowed 3 parties per year, and they must be held at the end of the school day. Items sent for
the parties must be store-bought items only. No homemade cakes, cookies, etc… Delaney PTA
will have a Fall Party on October 28th, a Winter Party on December 15th, and the End of Year
Party on May 30th. Parties begin at 1:45 p.m.
If you would like for teachers to hand out birthday invitations, please send enough to give one to
each student within the classroom. If you would only like to invite certain children, then we ask
that you and your child distribute those outside of the school day and not on school premises.
If you need to discuss your child’s work with a teacher, please plan to do so at a time other than
during the student’s workday. The teachers’ conference period are scheduled during the day. If
there is a need for a conference, please send a note by your child to his teacher or call the
school secretary to leave a message for the teacher to call to make an appointment.
All volunteers and field trip chaperones must have approved background checks on file.
Forms will be sent home at the beginning of each year. No background checks will be
accepted after September 30, 2011 for the first semester and February 3, 2011. If
you think there is any possibility that you or someone in your family might want to
attend an event as a chaperone, please turn in your application for background check by
the above dates.
No toys of any type are allowed at school. If students bring toys to school, they will be
taken up by the teacher and will only be returned to the parent.
Please obey the individuals directing traffic in the morning and afternoons. They are
doing so for safety of the students. We want everyone to be safe on arrival and
dismissal for school.
You may check on your child/s grades through the Parent Portal and keep track of lunch
money through Nutrikids.
Students will be allowed to wear jeans on Fridays with spirit shirts. If they
have not had any of the following:
Tardy any day of the week- this should be marked on calendar
Cafeteria issues of misbehavior marked on calendar
Check your child’s calendar for information! If a student wears jeans on a day
that they are not qualified to wear denim, you will be called and they will have
lost their option to wear denim the next Friday.
We understand that not everyone is able to purchase a spirit shirt
or wants to purchase one. Therefore, if your child is going to wear
jeans on Fridays, then he or she must have on a spirit shirt, or a
green, black, or white polo shirt. No other t-shirt is permitted
except for a spirit shirt. The spirit shirt can be from other
Kennedale schools, but needs to be a Wildcat shirt of some kind.
Also, there is to be no cheerleading uniforms or football
jerseys worn on Fridays. Fridays are not free dress days.
Please adhere to our request, so we do not have to call you in
regards to your child’s attire.

James F. Delaney Elementary Parent Involvement Policy and Program
Delaney Elementary has developed a parent involvement policy centered around five critical parent
involvement strategies which are to provide a variety of activities that encourage parents to participate at
school, to support and engage in learning activities with children at school and at home, to provide
training to staff to strengthen the home/school partnerships, to communicate frequently with parents, and
to provide life-long learning opportunities for parents.
The Delaney Elementary School will involve parents in the joint development of the Title I plan and the
process of school review and improvement.
An adequate number of parents will work collaboratively with the Delaney Site-Based School committee in
an organized, ongoing, and timely way, in the planning, review, and improvement of the Title I program.
Annually the school will convene a meeting to which all parents of participating students are invited to
inform the parents of the school’s participation in the Title I program and of the parents’ right to be
involved. Delaney will do this through Meet the Teacher Night, parent/child activities, PTA meetings and
events and Open House Night.
Delaney Elementary parents will work with faculty and staff as a team to improve student achievement
and will be provided timely information about available programs through regular communication on our
school website, monthly newsletters, PTA website and meetings, and the school marquee.
Parents will be provided with the school performance profiles and assistance with interpreting their child’s
individual assessment results through parent/teacher conferences and information sent home with
summary of assessment data.
Teachers will be given the opportunity to be involved in staff development to provide parents with a
description and explanation of the curriculum in use at the school, the forms of assessment used to
measure student progress, and the proficient levels students are expected to meet. This data will be
shared in parent conferences and school-distributed information. Teachers will also participate in diversity
and differentiation training through workshops or book studies in order to get a better understand of
parents and students and their experiences that they bring to the classroom and learn the best way to
meet the child’s individual learning style.
Parents will be provided with opportunities for regular meetings to formulate suggestions, share
experiences with other parents, and to participate in decisions relating to the education of their children
through the Site-Based Committee meetings or PTA general meetings.
Parents will receive a timely response to their suggestions from the teachers and staff of Delaney
The school will coordinate, provide technical assistance, and other support necessary to assist parents in
actively participating in the planning and implementing of a parent involvement program. This can be
done during PTA general meetings or opportunities that are provided for parents to utilize the Parents’
Library to strengthen their ability to work with the children in cooperation with educators to improve
Parents will jointly conduct an evaluation of the content and effectiveness of the parental involvement
policy and revise as necessary. This will be done through Site-Based meetings with committee members
Póliza de Participación de Padres y Programa de la Escuela Primaria James F. Delaney
La Escuela Primaria Delaney ha desarrollado una póliza de participación de padres centrada en torno a
cinco estrategias críticas de participación de padres que proporcionarán una variedad de actividades para
motivar a los padres a participar en la escuela, para apoyar y participar en actividades de aprendizaje con
los estudiantes en la escuela y en el hogar, para proporcionar entrenamiento al personal, para reforzar la
asociación entre la escuela y el hogar, para comunicar frecuentemente con los padres y para proporcionar
oportunidades de aprendizaje que duran toda una vida.
La Escuela Primaria Delaney implicará a los padres en el desarrollo conjunto del plan de Título I y en el
proceso de revisión escolar y mejora.
Un número adecuado de padres trabajarán colaborativamente con el Comité de Decisiones Escolares del
Plantel de manera organizada, continua y oportuna en la planeación, revisión y mejora del programa
Anualmente la escuela convocará una reunión a la cual todos los padres de los estudiantes participantes
estarán invitados para informarles de la participación de la escuela en el programa Título I y sobre el
derecho de los padres a participar. La escuela Delaney hará esto por medio de la Noche de Conocer a los
Maestros, actividades de padres e hijos, reuniones y eventos de PTA y Noche de Visitar a la Escuela.
Los padres de la escuela primaria Delaney trabajarán con la facultad y el personal como un equipo para
mejorar el rendimiento de los estudiantes y se les proporcionará información oportuna sobre programas
disponibles por medio de comunicación regular en nuestro sitio de Internet, boletines mensuales, sitio de
Internet y reuniones de PTA y por el cartelón de anuncios.
Se proporcionará a los padres los perfiles de rendimiento escolar y la asistencia para interpretar los
resultados individuales de evaluación de sus hijos por medio de conferencias entre padres y maestros e
información enviada a casa con un resumen de los datos de la evaluación.
Se proporcionará la oportunidad a los maestros de participar en talleres para proporcionar a los padres
con una descripción y explicación del currículo de uso en la escuela, las formas de asesoramiento para
medir el progreso estudiantil y los niveles de competencia que se espera que los estudiantes logren. Estos
datos se compartirán durante conferencias de padres y maestros y por medio de información distribuida
por la escuela. Los maestros también participarán en entrenamiento de diversidad y diferenciación por
medio de talleres o estudios de libros para poder tener un mejor entendimiento de los padres y
estudiantes y sus experiencias que traen al salón de clase y para aprender la mejor manera de cumplir
con el estilo de aprendizaje individual de cada estudiante.
Se proporcionará a los padres oportunidades para reuniones regulares para formular sugerencias,
compartir experiencias con otros padres y para participar en decisiones relacionadas con la educación de
sus hijos por medio de juntas del Comité de Decisiones Escolares del Plantel o por medio del las reuniones
generales de PTA.
Los padres recibirán con tiempo adecuado respuestas a sus sugerencias por los maestros y el personal de
la escuela primaria Delaney.
La escuela coordinará y proporcionará asistencia técnica y cualquier otro apoyo necesario para asistir a los
padres en participar activamente en planear e implementar un programa de participación de padres. Esto
se puede lograr durante las reuniones generales de PTA o por oportunidades dadas a los padres para
utilizar la Biblioteca de Padres para fortalecer su habilidad de trabajar con los estudiantes en cooperación
con los educadores para mejorar el rendimiento estudiantil.
Los padres llevarán a cabo en forma conjunta, una evaluación del contenido y de la efectividad de la póliza
de participación de padres y podrán revisarla conforme sea necesario. Esto se efectuará por medio de las
juntas del Comité de Decisiones Escolares del Plantel con los miembros del comité presente.
