CGS Discipline Procedures
Overall, Cambria Grammar School students are a very well-behaved and responsible group. We attribute this to high expectations and consistency on the part of the staff and to the support and cooperation from the home. Because of this, we have few serious problems and habitual disruptions are rare. The negative part of any discipline plan is developed for the few who have problems in the school environment. Over 90% of our students will never experience the negative consequences, only the positive recognition we seek to give.
The staff at Cambria Grammar School has devised a firm yet positive, fair and effective discipline program. We believe students can make appropriate choices concerning their behavior if given guidance, support and proper information. By implementing this process we will be helping our students practice preventive discipline, thus giving them the opportunity to learn and utilize self-discipline in their daily lives.
Classroom Rules and Consequences
Classroom rules and consequences will be developed by the individual teachers with input from their students. We believe that the classroom teacher has the best chance of helping the student to be responsible, well-behaved, and a productive member of our school and, therefore, should take primary responsibility for his/her students while at school.
School-Wide Yard and Cafeteria Rules
The school-wide yard and cafeteria rules apply to all students. Violations will be dealt with by the classroom teacher or the yard supervisor, depending upon where the violation occurred. The reason for this is that discipline for inappropriate behavior must have logical consequences that directly relate to the rule broken.
Discipline slips (“white slips”) are a way for the school to communicate with parents or guardians about a child’s behavior. They are given for inappropriate behavior that occurs during non-instructional time and occasionally during instructional time. Discipline slips are issued for the following types of misbehavior: disrespect to adults or peers, name calling, defiant behavior, unacceptable language, deliberately hurting another person (fighting, tripping, shoving, or throwing objects), damage to school property, gum/throwing food, and inappropriate playground behavior. If your child receives a discipline slip, he/she will be responsible for getting the slip signed by a parent and returning it to school the following day. If not signed and returned, a call may be placed to the parent or guardian.
Faculty members decide the type of consequence if a student breaks school rules and receives a discipline slip. Consequences may include: verbal correction, assignment of a specific duty as a consequence, exclusion from certain privileges, suspension from recess/ a time out, parent contacted by phone or discipline slip, writing an apology note, or a visit to the principal. If a student is involved in a serious problem, suspension is possible.
CGS Dress Code
The clothing and grooming of all students and faculty is to be neat, clean, and such that it is not disruptive to the educational process or offensive to others. Students are expected to dress for school in a manner consistent with the following guidelines.
1. Clothing that advertises the use of tobacco, alcohol, drugs and/or violence may not be worn.
2. Shirts/Clothing with offensive or inappropriate slogans and pictures may not be worn. No tank tops with low cut underarms.
3. Footwear must be worn by all students at all times. No footwear without back support (flip flops, clogs, etc.). Appropriate footwear must be provided for P.E.
4. Shorts may be worn provided that they are the appropriate length. No short shorts.
5. Shirts must be waist length. No inappropriate crop-tops, no spaghetti straps (straps should be at least one inch wide).
6. Things that cover the head such as hoods, beanies, hair nets, bandanas, etc. are not worn on school grounds unless it is pre-approved by an administrator and/or nurse. Hats are not to be worn backwards and hats are not to be worn in classrooms.
7. Tattoos may not be worn at school. No colored hair that distracts from learning, unless on certain special days.
8. No sagging pants, hanging suspenders, hanging belts, or chains.
