Rules & Conduct

Parents are encouraged to participate in the education of their children. Without the cooperation and support of parents, the school cannot effectively help your student reach his or her fullest potential.  The major role of parents in discipline is to continually show the child that they are interested and supportive of how their child is doing in school.  When the child sees that mom and dad are actively interested in whether or not he/she is doing his/her best, the student is given a real incentive to strive for excellence    

It is desirable to have everyone recognize that the goal is to help the child learn to get along in the school environment so the child can be successful when going on to middle school and high school.  By working together, parents and staff can help the student learn behaviors that will increase his/her chances of success. 

Please help your child understand school rules and their responsibilities as students. All Central Kitsap students are asked to agree to the Student Rights & Responsibilities.

Dress Code

Students are asked to wear clothes that are neat, clean and suitable for school. 

Clothing which interferes with and/or distracts from the educational process will be prohibited.  This might include, but not be limited to, extremely tight or excessively form-fitting clothing, excessively short or revealing clothing, T-shirts with abusive/derogatory pictures and/or printing, and any garment or footwear which could be determined as unsafe.  Excessively short clothing is defined as any pair of shorts or skirt that, when the student is standing upright with arms extended down the sides, comes above the tips of their fingers with the hand fully extended.

Students inappropriately dressed will be referred to the office.  Parents will be contacted and asked to bring appropriate clothing for them.

P.E. Attire

Students are asked to wear rubber-soled shoes and appropriate active-wear on PE days (every other day).  Those wearing boots, sandals, wooden shoes, or slippery-soled shoes will be asked to remove them because of the restrictive movement of the ankles or safety hazard. 

Textbook and Library Book Loss or Damage

When students are issued textbooks or library books, it is understood that reasonable care in the use, storage, and transportation between home and school of books will be taken. Charges for lost books will be at the rate of the replacement cost. 

School Parties

Classroom parties are up to the discretion of the teacher.  If you wish to send treats for birthdays, please contact the teacher in advance, so that classroom disruptions can be kept to a minimum. 

Valuables and Personal Belongings at School

Parents are requested to see that students only have enough money with them at school to purchase lunch or milk.  Students are not permitted to conduct money transactions with other students at school.

Parents should discourage children from bringing valuables, cherished objects and playthings to school unless prior arrangements have been made with the teacher.  The school is unable to accept responsibility for personal objects, which become targets for theft.  Such items can also become a distraction in the classroom.  Each trimester, unclaimed items will be donated to charity.

Cell Phones and Electronic Devices at School

A permission form must be signed by a parent if a student has a cell phone at school.  Cell phones must remain powered off and out of sight during the school day.

Some classrooms allow specific and restricted use of electronic devices.  If your child’s classroom allows electronic devices, a permission form may be obtained from your child’s teacher. (Not all classrooms allow electronic devices.)  

A signed permission form must be on file prior to the use of such electronic devices.  If a child is not complying with the classroom terms of use or a permission form is not on file, the item will be confiscated and a parent will be contacted.  As with other valuables, the school is unable to accept responsibility for electronic devices.  The student and parent accept full responsibility for and potential for loss of any electronic device a student brings to school.

Pets at School

Animals are not allowed at school unless prior approval and arrangements have been made.  If a pet is to be brought to school for "show and tell", please contact the teacher in advance.  Some children have allergies related to pets.  Pets are not allowed on the school bus. 

Bikes, Skateboards, Roller Blades & Scooters

Students are not to ride bikes, skateboards, roller blades or scooters to and from school due to the hazardous condition this would create during peak traffic hours before and after school.

Skateboarding has been prohibited on school grounds due to gangs of skateboarders intimidating adults and committing vandalism.
