Policy Reminders for Students and Families
As the year gets underway, we would like to remind you of a few policies:
Cell Phone Policy
At Prep, we LOVE our cell phone policy. When we are at school, we are here to learn
without distractions or disruptions. While the city has lifted the Chancellor’s
Regulation banning cell phones on school premises, the city has also emphasized
that each school has the opportunity to develop their own policy. Our policy
remains the same.
While we have always allowed cell phones in the building to ensure parents can
communicate with students before and after school, we have, as of 2014, required
cell phones be checked in every morning in AM homeroom and returned in PM
homeroom. All students are expected to check their phones, which are kept safely in
lockboxes in the Main Office. If a student neglects to check their phone, it will be
confiscated by school staff, given to the Principal for safekeeping, and a parent will
be required to pick it up.
Dress Code Policy
School is a serious place of learning and business. We consider school a professional
learning environment and appropriate dress is required. Students are expected to
come to school dressed appropriately in clean and neat attire.
Unacceptable Dress for School includes:
Short shorts or mini-skirts. All shorts or skirts must reach below your finger tips when standing with your hands at your side.
Shirts that do not cover chest or torso/stomach (even when arms are raised).
Inappropriate words, slogans or images on any article of clothing.
Coats or jackets worn inside the building.
Head gear such as hats or hoodies warn in the hallways. Head gear worn for religious purposes is, of course, permitted.
Jewelry is discouraged from being worn in school.
Consequences for failing to uphold the Dress Code
First Offense: Student will be notified of inappropriate dress and given a warning by homeroom teacher, classroom teacher, or dean. The student will be sent to Main Office and given a loose-fitting t-shirt or pants of their choice.
Second Offense: Student will be sent to the Main Office where the parent will be called and asked to pick up student or bring student a change of clothes.
