Behavior/Responsibility Code

ANDASOL ELEMENTARYSCHOOL 

The following Responsibility/Behavior Code has been developed to provide a basic code of conduct that every student should abide by in order to assure a safe, clean learning environment. All students deserve a safe learning environment inside and outside of the classroom. 

 

Students who continually disturb others in the classroom, bully or tease others or physically or verbally abuse another student WILL NOT BE TOLERATED AT ANDASOL ELEMENTARY.  There will be a series of consequences involving parents.

 

We have such great hard-working, creative students who ALL deserve to soar with their education in a safe place!

 

Please go over all of the rules with your child and indicate your understanding and support by signing the tear-off below and returning it to your child’s teacher.
