Student Drop off and Pick-up Procedures

Parking is not allowed in the "drive through drop off zone". This is only for allowing children to enter or exit vehicles. If you would like to walk your child to the front door or need to come into the office, please park your car in the parking lot. After school, if you choose to wait for your child in the "drive through drop off zone", please stay in your vehicle to keep moving ahead as cars in front of you leave. With everyone's cooperation, after school dismissal usually takes about seven to ten minutes. And, for the safety of all children, they are NOT allowed to enter or exit vehicles on Kingston. Please wait to pull into the "drive through drop off zone" to insure your children get safely to school.

Attendance

Parents are reminded that regular and prompt attendance at schools extremely important. An ill child should not be in school, since this may result in his/her health being impaired further and may result in other children being exposed to a communicable disease. However, every effort should be made to have the child in school each day he/she is able to attend. The following procedures are to be followed when your children are absent from school.

  •   When your child is to be absent from school, you are requested to notify the appropriate school office by telephone of such absence. Staff will be on duty to take these calls at the elementary schools between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 10:00 a.m.
    •   Failure to telephone in an absence each and every day that a child is out of school will result in a telephone call from the school to you during that same day.
      •   The first day that a child returns to school after an absence, you are requested to send a note, to be delivered to the school office, with the following information:
        •   a. The date(s) of absences,
        •   b. The specific reason for absence,
        •   c. Your signature.

      Weapons

      A student who uses, possesses, controls, or transfers a weapon, or any object that can reasonably be considered, or looks like, a weapon, shall be expelled for at least one calendar year, but no more than 2 calendar years. The Superintendent may modify the expulsion period and the Board may modify the Superintendent's determination, on a case-by-case basis. A "weapon" means possession, use, control, or transfer of: (1) any gun, rifle, shotgun, a weapon as defined by Section 921 of Title 18, United states Code, firearm as defined in Section 1.1 of the Firearm Owners Identification Act, or use of a weapon as defined in Section 24-1 of the Criminal Code; (2) any other object if used or attempted to be used to cause bodily harm, including but not limited to, knives, brass knuckles, billy clubs; or (3) "look-alikes" of any weapon as defined above. Any item, such as a baseball bat, pipe, bottle, lock, stick, pencil, and pen, is considered to be a weapon if used or attempted to be used to cause bodily harm. The Superintendent or designee may grant an exception to this policy, upon the prior request of an adult supervisor, for students in theatre, cooking, ROTC, martial arts, and similar programs, whether or not school-sponsored, provided the item is not equipped, nor intended, to do bodily harm.

      Homework Guidelines

      Time allocations for each grade are estimates based on what most children need to devote to their assignments:

      FIRST GRADE: Students may be asked to complete work not finished in school or complete a practice activity that supports classroom instruction. They may be asked to bring books or items for special classroom projects. Students are encouraged to read (or be read to) every night and practice math facts every night. (Time: 0-15 minutes of homework per day).

      SECOND GRADE: Students may be asked to complete work not finished in school or complete a practice activity that supports classroom instruction. They may be asked to bring books or items for special classroom projects. Students should be studying spelling words and math facts all week. Students should be reading each night. (Time: 20-30 minutes of homework per day).

      THIRD GRADE: Homework includes both completing work not finished in class and specific assignments to reinforce and/or enrich class instruction. There will be on an average of three to four nights a week. Students should be reading each night. (Time: 30-40 minutes of homework per day). Late work will be reduced by 10 points or 1 letter grade on the first day; on the second the assignment is graded a 0%.

      FOURTH GRADE: Homework includes completing work not finished in class and specific assignments to reinforce and or enrich class instruction. Work can be expected on an average of 4 nights per week. (Time: 40-50 minutes of homework per day). Late work will be reduced by 10 points or 1 letter grade on the first day; on the second the assignment is graded a 0%.

      Keys to Homework Success

      Communicate with your child's teacher,  Provide a well lit environment free of distractions, Supervise, provide encouragement and make sure that assignments are completed on time, Establish a regular time each day for homework and studying,  Please check your child's assignment notebook daily

      Vacation

      Assignments will be given when the student returns from vacation. Assignments need to be completed within a week. If not completed, students will receive a zero.

      Illness

      Assignments missed due to illness will be given one day per day of absence to complete missed work. Requests for homework should be given to the office before 11:00 am. Requested homework will be available in the office at the end of the school day. Summit Hill School District 161 appreciates parents taking an active role in the child's education both at school and at home.

      Appearance Code

      Students' dress for school, school activities, and school-related trips should be reasonable, reflect good taste, and be agreeable to the school sponsor/administration. Any mode of dress or appearance (including hairstyle and/or color, contact lens style and/or color, visible tattoos, and body piercing) that is disruptive to the safety or educational environment of our school will not be tolerated.
