Attendance

WCSD Policy 2900
The Washington County School Board believes that student learning and achievement is directly related to attendance. WCSD strives to make every effort to be in compliance with state law as well as work proactively together with parents, community resources to encourage the regular attendance of all Washington County students. The District believes this to be in the best interest of the students and the community. The Board, together with Washington County Schools, is committed to work in harmony with parents/guardian and to assist them with their responsibility to have their children in attendance at school.

All day EVERY day attendance!

TARDIES
Some of the most important instructions for your child are given during the first hour of the day; please make every effort to have your child to school on time. Tardiness also affects the entire class because of the interruption created when the student arrives late. It also causes the teacher to spend extra time catching the student up. In addition, tardiness embarrasses students and may hamper school success. All late students must check in at the office before being admitted to class.

EARLY CHECK OUT
A full school day lasts until 3:30 pm Monday thru Thursday and until 12:00 pm on Friday or Early Release Days. It is difficult for students to stay caught up on their classwork if they are checked out early on a regular basis.

Make attendance an ALL DAY EVERY DAY priority and routine!

School Visitors

Parents are welcome at school and are encouraged to visit, observe, or volunteer to help in classrooms. All visitors to the school must check in and out at the school office. When visiting during instruction, please be sensitive to classroom activities and please do not bring other children not enrolled at our school. WCSD policy discourages student visitors because of the disruption to learning.

Closed Campus

Students must remain at school unless checked out by a parent at the office. In order to check out a student a parent must provide a photo identification. Students who live close enough to walk home for lunch may do so, providing their parents have filed a written request with the office.

Student Immunizations

Utah State law requires that each student have on file with the school a copy of the individual immunization record. Please update the school records when additional immunizations are given. Immunization requirements: 4 DPT (one after age 4), 3 Polio (one after age 4), 2 MMR, Varicella or have had the Chickenpox, 3 Hepatitis B and 2 Hepatitis A.


For more information visit the Utah State Immunization website.

Administration of Medicine

Students should not have in their possession medicine of any kind, including over the counter meds or inhalers. The administration of prescribed medications to pupils by school personnel will be permitted with a current prescription and a signed doctor request. All medications are stored in a locked cabinet and a record is kept of all medications given. (https://procedure.washk12.org/forms/300/351)

Student Insurance

Student accident insurance is available to students whose parents want coverage for their children. The policy is limited and is strictly voluntary. Information concerning this policy is sent home with students in the early fall. If additional information is needed, please contact the office. Some students may qualify for CHIP (Children’s Health Insurance Program). More information about CHIP may be obtained by calling 1-888-222-2542.

Fee Waivers

WCSD Policy 3400

Each school is to ensure that adequate waivers or other provisions are available to guarantee that no student is denied the opportunity to participate because of an inability to pay the required fee, deposit, or charge. In addition to the outright waiver of fees, each school that charges a fee is to provide a variety of alternatives for satisfying the fee requirement to those who qualify, if there is reasonable work for fee waiver recipients to do, if the student’s circumstances are appropriate, and if there are District/school resources are available for adequate supervision and perhaps transportation. Alternatives include allowing the student to provide tutorial assistance to other students; assistance before or after school to teachers and other school personnel on school related matters; and general community or home service. Each school may add to the list of alternatives subject to approval by the Board.

Phone Policy

There is a phone in the office for student use. Students should seek permission from their classroom teachers to use the office phone when they need to call a parent. The office phone should not be used to arrange playtime with friends. When parents need to get a message to students during school time, they should call at least 30 minutes prior to school dismissal in order to allow for enough time for the message to be delivered before school dismisses. Parents should only call with student messages in emergencies. Whenever possible, parents should plan ahead so that calls do not disrupt student learning.

Mobile Phones, Tablets, and Music Devices

Mobile phones, tablets, and music devices can be a distraction to the educational environment. If students bring these to school they should remain in backpacks and not be used at any time during the school day (including recess or lunch). Students should use the school phone in the office when making any phone calls.

Toys, Pokemon Cards, etc

It is strongly recommended that any toy, Pokemon card, etc. be left at home and not be brought to school, even if left in a backpack. These items are often lost, broken, or stolen here at school. These items often create a distraction from learning.There are plenty of items provided by the school or a classroom teacher that are available to students for recess or lunch. 

Please leave toys at home!

Dress Standards

WCSD Policy 2200

Purpose and Philosophy

The Board of Education of the Washington County School District recognizes that every student in the schools should have the opportunity to learn in an environment which is safe, conducive to the learning process, and free from unnecessary disruption.  To foster such an environment the following policy establishes the framework for school dress and grooming.

Policy:

2.1. Students who attend the schools of Washington County School District are expected to come to school dressed and groomed appropriately for a learning environment and show respect for others by supporting the following dress and grooming standards.  These standards are intended to insure that every school in the Washington County School District will be a safe place for each student to learn, free from physical or moral threats and free from intimidation by others, to include gangs and gang appearance.

Procedure:

3.1. Dress and Grooming standards:

3.1.1. The attire (apparel) and grooming of all students should be neat, clean and safe. 

3.1.2. Students have the responsibility to avoid apparel that causes a distraction or disruption, interrupting school decorum and adversely affecting the educational process.  Students must also avoid apparel that is offensive, represents a risk, or threatens student safety.

3.1.2.1.  Printed apparel is acceptable only if it is in good taste.  Any apparel displaying profanity, suggestive slogans, pictures or graphics, or promoting substances illegal for consumption by a minor, will not be allowed.

3.1.2.2.  Clothes that are mutilated or immodest are not appropriate school wear.  Dresses, shorts, skirts, shirts, and blouses should be modest in length and not revealing.  (Tank tops, tube tops and garments that reveal undergarments may be considered revealing).

3.1.2.4.  Any apparel approved for school wear should be worn in accompaniment with appropriate undergarments.

3.2.  Consequences for violation of the Student Dress and Grooming Policy

3.2.1.  A student in violation of the “Student Dress and Grooming Policy” may be sent home to make the changes necessary to be in compliance with policy.  The student may return as soon as the required changes are made.

Please lock bikes, as the school cannot assume responsibility for lost or stolen bicycles. If parents bring students to school, please drop them off and pick them up in designated areas only. Do not double park or have children cross the driveway or come between cars. With so many parents dropping off and picking up, safety is critical. Please drive slowly and watch for children.

Handling Students with Head Lice

Handling Students With Head Lice – Admin Letter 140

In managing lice in the schools Washington County School District refers to the recommendations as per the Utah Department of Health (UDH), UDH Office of Epidemiology, the Center for Disease Control (CDC), American Academy of Pediatrics, and the National Association of School Nurses (NASN).

Over the last 10 years multiple scientific studies have proven that school is rarely the place of lice transmission. The vast majority of cases of lice are spread by friends and family members who often play or live together. However, the school can be helpful in controlling the spread of head lice through providing on-going education and information, including: prevention, identification, treatment and control measures. The school nurse plays an integral role in providing training to the school staff, and in assisting students/families with cases of head lice infestation.

Lice do not cause disease and are not dangerous to the child or to others. Head Lice are small (about the size of a sesame seed), wingless parasitic insects with sucking mouthparts that reside close to the scalp to maintain its body temperature and to feed on human blood. They lay their eggs called “nits” on body hairs or clothing. Without blood meals, a louse will die within 1 to 2 days off the host. An infestation (pediculosis) is referred to when there is direct visibility of live lice. No-nit policies are not necessary. (NASN)
