With a new school year and a new school building, we are excited to begin the year afresh! Please take a moment to review these important reminders about lateness, cell phones, and uniforms:
Student punctuality is an important component of respect that will be strictly enforced. Students are responsible for being in class on time, both at the beginning of the day at 8:50 am, and at the beginning of every block. Students have five minutes between classes and must be seated in class before the bell. Arriving late for class is not only disruptive, but students miss important announcements and instructions. Punctuality is a valuable life skill, both in an education setting as well as after graduation.
- If a student arrives late, they need to provide their teacher with a late slip. Late slips must be obtained from the office before coming to class.
- If a habit of lateness is observed, parents will be contacted.
- If the pattern continues, students and parents will be asked to meet with one of the administrators to work together to develop a plan to correct the situation.
Cellular devices are a distraction to student learning. To aid student focus during lessons, cell phones are not permitted in class. If a student uses a cellular device in class without their teacher’s permission, the device will be confiscated. Students may request their device from the office at the end of the day. If classroom use is repeated, parents may be asked to come in to retrieve the phone.
School uniform consists of a John Knox Christian School Logo shirt or sweatshirt with black/grey/khaki pants, Bermuda style shorts, or the JKCS kilt/tennis skirt with a bike short. Jeans, sweatpants, tights/leggings are not permitted. Please note shoes must be closed-toe. No sandals, slides, flip-flops, or open-toed shoes. Uniform infractions will be recorded and addressed.
Thank you for your continued support as we work hard to establish a positive learning environment that reflects our commitment to represent our faith community well.
