GENERAL POLICIES & CONTACT INFORMATION
Important reminders to keep our children safe and in an effective learning environment:
Drop Off and Pick Up:
Please do not drop your children off before 7:45am in the morning. Please be sure to drop your children off on the sidewalk in front of the entrance of Andalusia School. Please avoid double parking, and safely have your children get out of the vehicle onto school property.
- Please wait outsidefor children at dismissal time. If you need to speak with your child’s teacher, call the school office and schedule an appointment as teachers are not available to conference at dismissal time due to dismissal duties.
- When visiting the school, be sure to check in at the School Office first. Parents should not walk straight to their child’s classroom.
- We do not celebrate birthdays in the classroom. We do not interrupt instructional time for any kind of celebration requested by individual parents.
- Please make sure your child comes to school in compliance with the school Dress Code.
Students are required to follow the school’s dress code. On the third dress code violation, parents will be called and the student will be sent home.
Standard dress code rules that apply to all students are:
- Sweaters / jackets worn during the school day must be solid navy blue or black. High school students are permitted to wear gray in addition to black or navy blue. No hoods (“hoodies”) are permitted.
- Shoes must be solid black color.
- No open toe shoes or sandals are permitted.
- No jewelry or perfume.
- No make-up or nail polish.
- Hair (boys) must be trimmed above the collar and out of eyes, no unusual styles.
- Solid white hijab (head scarf) and school jilbab must be worn by all female students from grades four through twelve.
Cell phones and Electronic Devices:
Students are not permitted to carry cell phones during the school day. Students found to be in possession of a cell phone during the school day will face disciplinary action as this is a violation of school policy. Cell phones and devices are a distraction from learning and a privacy concern. If you need to contact your son or daughter during the school day, please call the school office. Students’ cell phones will be collected during 1st period homeroom class and locked away. Students may pick them up at the end of the day.
All students are to report to the school gymnasium no later than 8:10am daily. Students will be marked late at 8:16 am. Monday through Thursday, the school day ends at 2:50pm and students must be picked up no later than 3:05pm. On Fridays, the school day ends at 2:15pm and students must be picked up no later than 2:25pm. If picking up your child early, you must notify the office at least 30 minutes in advance.
No Student to Be Left Unattended:
No students are permitted to remain in the school building or on school premises once the school day is over. Students must exit the school building when the school day ends. Exceptions will only be made for students who are officially enrolled in a program that takes place in the building. These programs will provide a list of enrolled students to the School Office.
Attendance and Lateness:
School Policy requires that students attend school every day and are only absent or late when exceptional circumstances occur. Repeated Lateness and/or Absences are a violation of school policy and have a negative impact on your child’s learning and growth. In addition, repeated Lateness has a major impact on your child’s attendance record: three lateness result in one absence added to your child’s attendance record. By law, it is incumbent on the school to contact CPS (Child Protective Services) when your child has been absent twenty-five (25) days or more during the school year.
