We believe in a just and fair process of learning. Therefore, all students and adults at Montgomery are expected to:
Focus on learning and be prepared to learn.
Students will be dressed properly at all times (See Dress Code Policy). Students will wear their lanyards with I.D. cards at all times while on campus.
Students will bring and use their student planners as an organizational tool every day.
Students will be seated in class with materials ready when class begins.
Food/drinks are not allowed in hallways or classrooms. Gum chewing is not allowed in school.
Respect the rights of others to study and learn.
Students will adhere to an honesty policy. Cheating, plagiarism, theft, alteration of materials or forgery will not be permitted. Staff will determine the appropriate consequences.
Be kind to yourself and others.
Students will follow the direction of all staff members at all times.
Students will not engage in profanity, vulgar behavior, sexual harassment or intimidation. Repeated incidents of this nature may lead to suspension.
Displays of affection (hugging, kissing, holding hands, etc…) are not allowed on campus.
Show respect for property.
Students will respect school property and the property of others.
Defacing/destroying school property may result in arrest and/or suspension, and restitution.
Behave safely and have regard for the safety of others.
Students will remain on campus the entire day unless they have been properly excused with an appropriate pass. Students will observe the established Entry Point Policy.
Students will move safely through hallways and on campus and will follow prescribed noise levels. Students will observe the established Hallway, Cafeteria, Bathroom, and Assembly Policies.
Students will not bring the following items to school: Excessive money, toys, firecrackers, electronic devices (such as MP3 player/iPod, PSP etc.), balls, skateboards, scooters, roller blades, spraying devices, markers, whiteout, wallet chains, and cameras. Cell phones must be kept inside backpacks and turned OFF during school hours. These items will be confiscated and held until the Electronics/Toys Policy has been reviewed by parents. The school is not responsible for lost, damaged, or stolen items.
Students will observe the district’s Zero Tolerance Policy. This policy will be reviewed and signed by parents and students and kept in school records. Any object used to inflict injury becomes a weapon (such as rocks, school supplies, etc.), and may lead to suspension. Playfighting and acts of wreckless behavior which lead to injury may lead to suspension.
Bullying/intimidating behaviors will not be tolerated and will be addressed according to the district’s discipline guidelines. This includes bullying, intimidation, and violence threats made through the use of the internet or telephone. “Cyberbullying” is a form of harassment, and may result in suspension.
The school reserves the right to monitor and regulate any situation that disrupts or compromises the safety of students and staff
