Parents/Guardians,

Every year questions are asked regarding transportation.   Please note in the below policies that elementary students who live beyond 1.5 miles from the school are eligible to ride the bus.  Those students who qualify to ride a bus are to be dropped off and picked up at their regularly assigned bus stop.  Transporting students to daycare or non-related school activities is not allowed.

There must be a minimum of ten students for an established bus route.  If students qualify for a bus and the route does not meet this requirement, a bus will not be provided. In this situation, parents may be reimbursed for transporting their child/children.

We appreciate our Transportation Department and the fabulous work they do.  If you would like to review our busing policies and procedures, you can locate this on Weber School District’s website under Departments/Transportation. 

Weber School District Elementary Education 

 

Bussing Procedures

Due to liability and safety concerns, the district strictly adheres to the busing procedure set forth by the Weber School District, the Utah State Office of Education and Risk Management.

The procedure states that school bus drivers are not authorized to allow eligible students, those who are assigned to their bus route, to be dropped off or picked up at unauthorized bus stops nor to allow students not assigned to their bus route to ride the school bus.  Ineligible students, those who do not qualify for busing services, are also not allowed to ride the school bus to or from school.

Transporting students to such activities as parties, scouts, sleepovers, achievement days, piano lessons, daycare, etc. will not be allowed.  The school bus is only to be used for transporting eligible students to and from their registered residence.

POLICY 2340--BUS TRANSPORTATION, BUS STOPS, ROUTES AND DISTANCE REGULATIONS

3. Bus Routes:  Bus routes will be established at the beginning of each school year in accordance with the regulations listed above and in accordance with sound economical and safety practices.  Buses will be routed in such a manner as to provide approved transportation services that are economically feasible, safe and practical. The minimum number of general education students required to establish a route is ten: the minimum number of students with disabilities is five.

POLICY 2340--BUS TRANSPORTATION, BUS STOPS, ROUTES AND DISTANCE REGULATIONS

2. Parents of elementary students who live beyond 1.5 miles from the established bus route and parents of secondary students who live beyond two miles from the established bus route may be reimbursed an amount determined by the Board of Education for transporting their students from their registered address to the nearest bus stop on the regular bus route.

 

Drop-off/Pick-up

The school building will be open to students eating breakfast at 8:15 am. Buses will arrive at approximately 8:15. The cafeteria serves breakfast at a fee from 8:15-8:30. Classrooms will be open to students at 8:30. Weather permitting; students are encouraged to remain outside until the teacher welcomes them in. Please help see that students arrive no earlier than fifteen minutes before school starts.

If you are dropping your students off or picking them up from school, please parkyour car in an appropriate parking space and escort your child across the bus lanes. All walking (any student that does not ride the bus) will line up at the flag pole after school until escorted by a parent or the buses have left.

 

Digital Media Device Policy

Digital media devices include, but are not limited to: cell phones, pagers, computers, cameras, audio recorders, PDA’s, radios, CD/DVD players, USB thumb drives, video games; Game Boy, Nintendo DS, PSP, and other electronic or battery-powered instruments/toys. These devices have increased in our community and in the schools. While digital media devices can be beneficial, their misuse may be disruptive to a positive learning environment and may infringe on the privacy and rights of others. In order to maximize a positive learning environment at North Ogden Elementary the following procedures concerning the use of DMD will apply:

Use of any and all DMD is prohibited while on school grounds. They are not to be turned on or visible except with the consent and under the supervision of a teacher and/or an administrator. If there is a medical or other need, individual exceptions will be considered by the teacher and/or administrator.

The office phone is available for students and parents/guardians to contact each other in case of a school/personal issue or emergency, 801-452-4300.

School personnel are not responsible for stolen, lost, or damaged DMD.
Infractions of this policy will result in the following possible consequences depending on the infraction:

  • Student will be reminded of school policy and instructed to comply.
  • DMD will be confiscated from the student. Students will be allowed to retrieve their property at the end of the school day. A parent will be notified.
  • DMD will be taken from the student and given to the administration and may be held in the office until a parent/guardian can pick it up. A parent will be notified.
  • Student is subject to disciplinary action “up to and including suspension from school” at the discretion of the school administration.

Additional provisions:

A student is prohibited from taking video of another individual (staff or student) without that person's consent, and if a person violates this provision, not only will the phone be confiscated but the video will also be deleted

Misuse of DMD is additionally addressed in Weber School District Policy 8350 (Digital Media Devices) and Policy 5200 (Student Discipline Policy, Safe School Policy).
The teacher and the office personnel will do their best to guard and protect confiscated DMD, but are not responsible for loss, damage, or theft.
All devices that have not been picked up before June 5th will be donated.
Searches of DMD are only conducted if there is “reasonable suspicion” of prohibited content or to determine the owner.

Weber School District Student Discipline Policy and Safe School Policy

Students attending North Ogden Elementary should dress appropriately to not detract from the learning environment and exhibit pride in themselves and North Ogden. Clothing that is distracting, detrimental, disruptive, or unsafe for any reason is not acceptable attire. Specifically, the following should be avoided and will not be allowed at North Ogden Elementary School:

Clothing which displays obscene, suggestive, vulgar, lewd words, messages, or pictures: clothing that advertises controlled substances such as alcohol, tobacco, drugs and breweries, contains sexual content or which is otherwise plainly  offensive.
Inappropriate short, tight, revealing, mutilated, ragged or otherwise disruptive appearance or attire. (A good way to make sure items of clothing are long enough is to have your child put their hands to their sides. If their fingertips are touching skin, the item of clothing is too short for  school.)
Bare or stocking feet. It is recommended  that students avoid high heels, flip flops and slip-on shoes. Heelys are also not allowed. (This type of footwear contributes to falls and accidents in the classroom, during P.E., and on the playground.) State law requires that shoes will be worn at school at all times.
Apparel or accessories with gang symbols,  monikers, insignias or other gang identifiers.
No headwear will be permitted. This  includes but is not limited to hats, caps, scarves, bandanas, hoodies,  etc.
All shirts, tops, and dresses must have a  sleeve. Sleeves must cover the ball of the shoulder.
Excessively baggy, ‘sagging’ pants or shorts are not permitted. No underwear showing.
Clothing that exposes bare midriffs
Potentially dangerous apparel items such as spiked clothing, bracelets, large or long chains, or unsafe accessories  will not be allowed.
Students who violate this policy:

-Student’s parents/guardians will be notified of dress code violation.

-If further inappropriate or chronic dress code violations continue, disciplinary action may be taken, which includes, but is not limited to suspension and/or referral to the district office.

The school may make exceptions to the dress standard for special occasions. It is expected and appreciated that parents who spend time at our school follow the above dress code as well.

Weber School District Attendance Policy

COMPULSORY ATTENDANCE

Any person having control of a minor between six and 18 years of age is required to send the minor to a public or regularly established private school during the school year of the district in which the minor resides.

It is a misdemeanor for a person having control of a minor to willfully fail to comply with the requirements of this chapter. A district board of education shall report cases of willful noncompliance to the appropriate juvenile court. Officers of the juvenile court shall immediately take appropriate action.

A person having control of a minor between six and 18 years of age is exempt from Utah State Code 53A-11-102 if the minor is excused from attendance by the district board of education for one of the following reasons:

1. a minor over age 16 may receive a partial release from school to enter employment if the minor has completed the eighth grade or the minor's services are required for the support of a parent. Minors excused under this subsection are required to attend part-time schooling as prescribed by the board; or

2. on an annual basis, a minor may receive a full release from attending a public, regularly established private or part-time school or class if:

a. the minor has already completed the work required for graduation from high school;

b. the minor is taught at home in the branches prescribed by law for the same length of time as minors are required by law to be taught in the district schools. A minor excused to enter employment under subsection 1 may be excused from attending required part-time schooling if the minor is taught the required number of hours at home;

c. the minor is in a physical or mental condition, certified by a competent physician if required by the district board, which renders attendance inexpedient and impracticable;

d. there is no school or class taught for the required length of time within 2.5 miles of the minor's residence or place of employment and free transportation is not provided to a school or class located beyond 2.5 miles;

e. proper influences and adequate opportunities for education are provided in connection with the minor's employment; or

if after expending earnest and persistent efforts, the Superintendent or his designee has determined that a minor over the age of 16 is unable to profit from attendance at school because of inability or a continuing negative attitude toward school regulations and discipline.

3. In each case, evidence of reasons for granting an exemption must be sufficient to satisfy the district board. Boards excusing minors from attendance issue a certificate stating that the minor is excused from attendance during the time specified on the certificate.

4. A HOME SCHOOL may be an alternate to public school if it meets state and local district requirements in the law. The responsibility of the local school board is to evaluate home schools annually to see that:

a. the home school is "regularly established" to produce an educational program "sufficient" to provide the student with the minimum educational program as required in the public schools.

b. time for conducting school is to coincide with the regularly established school year required by the state.

c. educational curriculum must be adequate to cover the curriculum of education (branches) prescribed by law.

d. the procedure for a home school to be recognized will include the following:

(1) filing an application with the Superintendent and the Board of Education designating a name for the home school and defining educational intentions.

(2) disclosure of curriculum and agreements of cooperative use of public school materials and/or part-time participation in classes evaluation time, fees, etc.

(3) determination of equivalent attendance requirements such as 180 days and 5-1/2 hours per day (minimum time).

(4) designation of an instructor who is capable of educating students in the home school.

e. The method of exit from and re-entry to the public school system is critical. The Board of Education reserves the right to designate re-entrance levels by examination. The instruments used must be no more difficult than those required of regular public school children.

(1) Periodic review, at least annually, must be done by representatives of the Board of Education to satisfy the "intent" of quality education in the home. Examination of the roll book, lesson plans, curriculum records, etc., may suffice.

(2) High school credit, graduation or diplomas, textbook use, testing, program assistance, partial attendance, supplies, field trips, athletics, etc., will be mutually agreed to at the time a home school makes application to be established. Evaluation of progress and re-entry placement needs to be done prior to the senior year (12th grade) to be considered for graduation or diploma.

(3) The Board of Education has the ultimate decision as to which students receive diplomas and/or graduate. The evaluation of the student's program needs to be done at each high school prior to the 12th grade (senior year) to be considered for a diploma from the public school system.

(4) A procedural packet of information will be sent to each home school at the time of application regarding the responsibilities of the home school and the Board of Education.

5. That any minor who has reached the age of sixteen years and whose school experience has, in the judgment of school officials, demonstrated that such minor is unable to profit from school attendance, either because of the student's continued negative attitude toward school regulations and school discipline, may be excused from school attendance upon recommendation of the Superintendent, or his designee, and approved by the Board of Education.

6. The evidence of the existence of any such reasons for non-attendance must be in each case sufficient to satisfy the Board of Education, or due process officer, acting in the name of the superintendent of the district in which the child resides, which, if satisfied, shall issue a certificate stating that the holder is exempt from attendance during the time therein specified.
