Policy Reminders

Hello AV Families,

Just wanted to send a quick reminder about the following policies.  I appreciate your help and support as we work together to keep our students safe and engaged in the learning process.

Appropriate School Dress:

We believe that appropriate dress and grooming contribute to a productive learning environment.  Students are expected to give proper attention to personal cleanliness and to wear clothing that is both reasonable and appropriate for elementary age children who are expected to participate in physical education and recess activities.  Clothing may not be a distraction to other students or the classroom learning environment and must promote safety.While playing outdoors or participating in activities outside, students are allowed to wear articles of sun-protective clothing, including, but not limited to, hats.

The following attire is not allowed:

  • Any shoe that is not rubber soled; or shoes with wheels built into the soles;
  • Open-toe, open-heel or over 1″ high-heel shoes;
  • Tops that expose the midriff and/or have spaghetti straps;
  • Any shirt that displays inappropriate language or graphics or displays a logo or reference to tobacco, alcohol, drugs, sex or violence;
  • Excessively baggy clothing that inhibits physical education activities;
  • Cut, colored or dyed hair that distracts from the education process.
Telephone and Cell Phones/SmartWatches:

Students will be allowed to use the phone in the office or classroom for emergency calls only.  All after school or social arrangements should be made prior to the school day. Any cell phone or smartwatch that is in the possession of a student must be turned off throughout the instructional day.  Cell phones/smartwatches that are left on and become disruptive to the educational environment or cell phones/smartwatches that are used as distracters from learning will be taken from the student until a parent can pick it up.
