Rules and Regulations 2017-2018

My appearance speaks many things of me and my home.” The school uniform grants every student the same status and respect, reflects the school identity, and promotes belonging.

Students are expected to:

-  Be in the assembly hall before 7:45 a.m. every day

-  Be in line by the 2nd bell after recess

-  Leave school at the 2:55 p.m. closing bell. For their safety, students are not to arrive to school before 7:15 a.m. and must be picked up no later than 3:00 p.m.as supervision cannot be ensured outside this time bracket. 

 

  Late students must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to see the Principal who will then issue a permission slip to enter class.

  Regular attendance is mandatory.

 

 

C. Sickness and Absence:

 

For the well-being of every child-as well as that of the entire Elementary I community-, specific health and hygiene regulations are implemented at school.

 

Parents are urged to promptly report any illness, health complications, or communicable diseases to the Division Principal as soon as possible.

  In case of absence, parents or guardians of the absent student are urged to call the Division Principal to specify the reason of absence.

  A medical report from the treating physician is required for any absence of more than two school days.

Students who have fever, a persistent cough, a runny nose, diarrhea, or are vomiting, must stay home.

  In the event that a child exhibits any of the above symptoms or has an accident during the day, the Division Principal will contact the parents and discuss with them the measures to be taken.

 

D. Classroom Rules:

 

My class is my second home; I will do my best to follow its rules.


In class, students are expected to:

-  Adopt a decent attitude that reflects their upbringing and JM belonging at all times

Permission to leave class is granted by the incoming teacher.

Students are not allowed to possess electronic gadgets, toys or magazines.

 

E. Discipline:

Discipline is the training that develops self-control, order, efficiency and character.

Basic to all discipline is the principle of respect - respect for one's self and for others.

 

     •  Students are expected at all times to behave obediently and respectfully towards everyone at school. They are to show gentleness and courtesy towards their fellow students.
     •  Parents are expected to cooperate with the school by enforcing self-control and discipline.

 

 

F. Written Work:

 

I hear and I forget, I see and I remember, I write and I understand.

 

Students are expected to submit all written work on time, neat and tidy.

Written work, unless otherwise specified, should be personal. 

In case assigned work is repeatedly submitted late, the teacher will

- Talk to the student

- Give a verbal warning

-  Write a note on the agenda

-  Confer with the parents

 

G. Circulation in and out of the Division:

 

Right now is a great time to make a good choice.

 

Students are expected to:

-  Be silent during Assembly, on the stairs and in the hallways.

- Stay out of the classrooms during breaks and before classes start.

Parents are requested to inform the Principal of any changes in students’ pick-up arrangements.

 

 

H. Dishonesty:

 

Honest hearts produce honest actions!

•  Dishonesty is a serious offense, and a JM student is expected to be always honest.

  Dishonesty may take the form of copied homework, lying, cheating in tests and so on.

 

 

I. Non-Academic Classes:

 

It never gets easier; I just get better!

All students are expected to participate in non-academic classes. 

Only students who have a medical report will be exempted from P.E. classes.
