Code of Conduct

The Fairview Code of Conduct and Student Handbook must be followed. This includes dress code even if the student's home campus dress code is more lenient. This means no saggin', baggin', or draggin', shirts tucked in and no earrings for the boys.

Respect each other and the property of others. Do not use or take things without asking for and receiving permission.

Courtesy is a good thing, extend it to everyone. Always remember "Please" and "Thank You". Always pick up after yourself and assist others when they need it. You may need a helping hand someday, too.

Treat everyone as you would like to be treated and maybe they will return the favor.

Be patient, not everyone is as fast or good as you are at everything.

Be tolerant. We don't all see or interpret the world the same way or like the same things or have the same opinions or ideas. Cherish the differences, they are what make like interesting. If we all thought the same way, it would be a pretty boring planet.

Be aware of your language an d the words that you use. Words can hurt and not all of them are appropriate for a public classroom or work place. If you wouldn't say it to your mother or grandmother, it's probably not a good idea to say it here.

Keep busy, always be thinking about what you can do next. We don't allow idle hands. Free time does not mean you can do nothing. It also does not mean that you can sleep, you are supposed to do that at home when it's dark outside. Free time means you can choose your own activity within reason and time limits.

No candy or food unless it is approved by the teacher or aide. Breakfast and morning break snacks are allowed during predetermined times. A water bottle filled with water will be allowed and it may be refilled from the water jug in the classroom or at the water fountain during breaks.

Project time/reward time is your priviledge. Use it wisely.

Field trips are also a priviledge, if the student can not behave in the classroom, it will be assumed that they cannot behave on a field trip as well.

Think ahead and remember to bring something to write with and something to write on.
