These expectations are focused on safety, responsibility and respect. Staff members will be intentional in teaching, modeling and periodically reviewing the common expectations throughout the year. We ask that every student follow these expectations:

  • Keep your hands and feet to yourself.
  • Use appropriate language and voice level.
  • Follow adult directions the first time they are given.
  • Help maintain a clean campus.
  • Respect the personal space and property of others.
