Digital Media Devices/Cell Phone Policy:

We are committed to ensure that a DMD does not interfere with the learning environment and safety procedures or infringe on the privacy of others at North Ogden Elementary.  Therefore, the following procedures will apply to student use of a DMD on school property during school hours:

  1. DMD including student cell phones, music devices, gaming devices, cameras, etc. should not be used during school hours. They are not to be seen, heard or used in any way.

Children should respect adults.  Any staff member at Kanesville has the right to communicate with any student should conditions warrant.  Students should be taught to respect property and be responsible for lost or damaged school property.

Tardies:

IT IS CRITIAL THAT STUDENTS BE ON TIME FOR SCHOOL.  When students come late to class, they miss out on learning, as well as disrupt the learning process.  School begins at 8:45 am.  Please make sure your children are on time. It is imperative to teach them the importance of being on time.  When your child is late, please have them check in with the office prior to going to class.

Students except in emergencies should not use the office phone.  Students must get permission from their teacher to use the telephone.

BUSSING POLICY:

Due to serious liability and safety concerns with bussing children, the district has asked us to strictly adhere to the bussing policy.

The policy states that drivers are not authorized to allow children to change buses or stop at unassigned spots.

Transporting children to such activities as parties, scouts, sleepovers, achievement days, piano, etc. will not be allowed. Students not on the regular passenger list will not be permitted to ride the bus.  If you feel you must request an exception to this policy, because of extenuating circumstances, (ie: a relative may be taking care of your children while you are out of town), you will need to fill out and get signed a copy of the bussing form from the school office.  You may also call the transportation supervisor at 476-7937 if you have concerns.  We appreciate your cooperation with this important safety issue.

 

 

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
