Elementary Grades 1 - 3

Students are expected to dress in a manner that is supportive of a positive learning environment that is free of distractions and disruptions. There is a direct correlation between student dress and student behavior. Students will be expected to observe modes of dress, styles of hair, and personal grooming, which support the learning environment.

Outer clothing which resembles loungewear, pajamas, or underwear is prohibited. Fads and styles in dress which differ extremely from conventionally accepted standards are prohibited. Any clothing that is viewed as distracting because of extremes in style, fit, color, pattern, fabric, etc., shall not be permitted. Undergarments may not be exposed at any time.

SLEEPING FACILITIES
We will provide sleeping facilities for children under 5 years of age. For Infants individual cribs will be provided. For Toddlers and up comfortable cots are provided. Parents should supply and keep one (1) cot sheet and one (1) blanket for your child. Parents are asked to take these home every Friday, wash and returned on the following Monday. Nap time is usually after lunch for a period of 2 hours (For infants this will vary). Sleeping facilities are available to all children including Kindergarten students although children in this age group very rarely want to sleep.

Toys

Please ensure that your child does not bring toys to school. Personal toys are not permitted in school and if lost or broken the school will not take responsibility. At this age the concept of sharing is harder to teach when toys are brought to school. The school maintains an adequate supply of toys and also have provisions for breakage and loss of these toys, but we cannot ensure the same for toys brought to school. For those children starting school for the first time, we do allow your child to bring a favorite toy or item. This is to ensure the smooth transition into the school. Once your child gets used to school we ask you to go back to the no toy policy.

Kindergarten  and Elementary students may bring ONE toy or book etc. to school on Friday (Which should correspond to the sound of the week) which is share day. However the toy’s etc should be kept in their cubbies or back pack at all times and will be taken out only at share time and put back accordingly. No Toys are allowed in the Playground at anytime due to the safety of the Toys and Children.
