The Virtual Student Constitution 2012: The Valleyview Student Handbook 2.0 EDITION

ELECTRONICS POLICY

Many electronics can be used for help in learning. However they can also be distracting to a minor’s learning. Students must leave their phones in their lockers shut off if it is brought to school. Cell phone use on the bus is allowed. However students must keep the use of their phone appropriate (appropriate being no cyber bullying, cursing, etc.). If the administration discovers inappropriate use of the phone, it will be taken away, and student will be subjected to consequences. In addition, all electronics are allowed before the bell rings but they must be turned off and in their lockers before homeroom. However if a device is used for educational purposes, it is allowed as long as it is on vibrate or silent. All confiscated items will be in the office for parent pick-up.

FIRST OFFENSE: a written warning and the device is taken away for the remaining rest of the day.

SECOND OFFENSE: device is taken away, parent meeting

THIRD OFFENSE: student suspension, parent meeting, 2 points.

Cell Phones-If a student chooses to bring an electronic to school they cannot text or call anyone without a teachers permission. The phone will be confiscated if a student is caught texting, calling, or playing games without permission. The confiscated device will be brought to the main office to later be picked up by a parent

Attendance/Tardiness Policy

Both parents and school staff have a right to see students in school, working. The only things that prevent students from staying out of school are these things:

1. Any harsh or contagious illness

2. Any religious holidays or celebrations

3. School sponsored events

After 10 excused absences, we will be forced to take legal action over the case.


More Reasons

  • A student may request an excused absence from school if there is a death in the family, religious purposes, participation in an educational program, and personal illness with a doctor’s note.

  • If a student is to be absent the parent or guardian must call the school office or the school nurse before school starts

  • A student with 5 or more absences need a guardian signature and/or a doctor’s note if the student was absent due to illness.

  • If a student is late to school the student will need to go to the main office and retrieve a pass. If student does not retrieve a pass, they will be marked absent or tardy.

  • If a Student exceeds 20 absences, the principal has the right to keep the student until he/she completes the academic responsibilities before the student passes.

  • Any absences other than the reasons listed above will not be tolerated unless the Superintendent of the district approves.

  • Vacations during the school year are discouraged. It will be counted as an unexcused absence. Teachers will not repeat missing work; it is the student’s responsibility to make up the work they missed. Teachers do not have to change due date for the absent student(s).

  • If a student is late to class, the student must arrive to class with a late pass signed by the teacher the student was with; date and time must be included


Student Conduct
Students are responsible for their own actions and are required to follow rules. We want the students to have a safe environment to learn thus the students must follow the codes below. Your punishment will depend on the seriousness of the event that has occurred. If a student has not acted poorly they shall be rewarded with the participation of the class field trip and the opportunity to participate in a dance. If the student does not follow the codes, they shall not be rewarded.

~ Students must respect themselves

~ Students must respect their peers
~ Students must do all classwork and homework
Wondering how or why you got a detention? (see voki below)




Backpacks

Backpacks/ backpack replacements are only permitted to bring supplies to and from school before and after school hours. Students are required to manually carry their books during school hours.
