STUDENT CODE OF CONDUCT
The Student Code of Conduct is the same for all children attending schools in Pomona Unified School District. The following rules that make up the Code were identified as behaviors that promote academic achievement:
1. Come to school prepared to learn.
2. Respect the rights of others.
3. Obey all school rules.
4. Obey the requests of all school personnel.
By working together, we can improve student behavior and enable all children to learn.
Students in 4th & 5th grades are the only students allowed to ride a bicycle to school. All bike riders must wear a helmet as required by state law and lock their bike to the bike rack. NO student is allowed to bring a skateboard, scooter, or roller blades/wheelies to school.
Ample play and athletic equipment is provided for pupils at Kingsley School. All equipment meets health and safety specifications as set forth by State and District codes. We request, therefore, that pupils do not bring toys or athletic equipment from home for use on the playground during school hours.
With 800 students and a surcharge for each call made, we must limit the number of phone calls children can make. Your child will not be allowed to call home for such things as forgotten homework or lunch money. In addition, phone calls to school interrupt instruction. Therefore, phone calls to teachers need to be placed during non-instructional (class) time. Children need to know daily after school instructions and lunch plans prior to coming to school to each day. Children should not bring a CELL phone to school.
If a child is not eating in the cafeteria he/she must bring their lunch in the morning. Parents may not bring a lunch from home or a fast food lunch to the office as it interrupts the instructional day.
Because instructional minutes are so very important, personal celebrations such as birthday parties are not allowed during class, recess, or lunch time.
A health clerk is on duty each school day. It is important that the clerk always have a current home number for each child in case of emergency. California State Education code requires that you be informed that all medication must be administered through the health office with a doctors consent on file.
Student insurance forms will be sent home. This is an optional plan which is provided for your protection. Send the application directly to the insurance company, not to
Kingsley students and parents may check out books from our school library. A permission slip will be sent for each child. Children visit the library on a weekly basis. Parents, grandparents, and / or friends volunteer their time so each class has a time to check out books. We hope you will let your child participate in the library services and will donate any time you might have available for this special project. The library is open to parents to check out books before school one
day a week.
LOST AND FOUND
Articles of clothing that are turned in as "lost" are sent to the cafeteria to a clothes rack. You and/or your child should check there if something has been misplaced. Purses, keys, jewelry, and other valuables are kept in the office.
Kingsley has a disaster plan in case of emergency. All staff have been assigned responsibilities for keeping children safe. Children remain at school until they can be picked up by parents or others indicated on the emergency card as having permission to take children home.
A monthly calendar is sent home letting parents know of upcoming events or information. We also post upcoming dates on our marquee in front of the school. Our revolving message board from the office window gives short announcements in English and Spanish. You may also call the school at any time at 397-4608.
