Classroom conduct is simply an extension of the Biblical principles of honesty and
courtesy to the administration, the teacher, and fellow students. Students will be
encouraged to give all teachers and adults the highest level of respect.
Students will be taught and encouraged to respond to all teachers and adults by saying “Yes Sir”, “No Sir”, Yes Ma’am”, and “No Ma’am”. Students are expected to be attentive in class.
Talking, unnecessary noise, working on unrelated materials, writing, reading, or
sending note/letters are inappropriate. Food and chewing gum are not permitted in the classroom unless the teacher deems it appropriate for an activity or another occasion.
All electronic devices must be turned off and given to the office personnel to be kept
for the day.
A “Hands-Off” policy applies to all students at all times, at all school functions. (6
inch rule) Students of the opposite gender may have no physical contact of any sort,
at any time.
