Disability Harassment

Our school prohibits harassment of any kind including harassment based on an individual’s disability. The following are examples of circumstances that may constitute disability harassment:

  • Several students continually remark out loud to other students during class that a student with dyslexia is “retarded” of “deaf and dumb” and does not belong in the class.

  • A student repeatedly places classroom furniture or other objects in the path of classmates who use wheelchairs, impeding the class-mates mobility.

  • Habitually subjecting a student to inappropriate physical restraint because of conduct related to his/her disability.

  • Repeatedly denying a student with a disability access to lunch, field trips, assemblies, and extracurricular activities as punishment for taking time off from school for required services related to a student’s disability.

  • Repeatedly belittling and criticizing a student for using accommodations in class.

  • Taunting and belittling a student with a mental retardation by mocking and intimidation.

 

School personnel who become aware of a disability related harassment shall promptly and effectively act to end the harassment and prevent it from recurring and where appropriate, remedy the effects on the student who was harassed. Remedial measures will generally include counseling both person(s) who have been harmed by harassment and person(s) who have been responsible for the harassment of others and implementing monitoring programs to follow up on resolved issues of disability harassment. Students should report any concerns related to disability harassment to a school administrator.

Discipline

Mountain View Elementary has a discipline program based on the Board of Education policy. Copies are distributed to parents and students at the beginning of school. Each classroom teacher discusses the policy and works with students to develop room rules. The faculty also defines specific steps toward helping children develop a plan to change inappropriate behaviors. Your support is vital to the success of our discipline policy.

Dismissal Time

Teachers are to escort students to the bus and parent pick up areas. The bell rings at 3:45 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. On Wednesdays we have early release at 12:10 p.m.

Dress Code

The Board of Education expects the student dress code and grooming to reflect high standards of personal conduct so that each student’s attire promotes positive, safe and healthy atmosphere within the school. Student dress may not present a health or safety hazard, violate municipal or state law or disrupt the educational program.

Attire or accessories that advertise, display or promote any drug, including alcohol or tobacco, sexual activity, violence, disrespect and/or bigotry towards ant group are not acceptable. Unacceptable clothing and accessories include, but not limited to gang-related attire, excessively tight or revealing clothes, short shorts, bare midriff, low-cut and/or off the shoulder blouses, strapless or “spaghetti strap” clothing, spiked jewelry, chains, belts with more than 2 inches excess. “Sagging” or the wearing of pants below the waist and/or in a manner that allows underwear or bare skin to show, and “bagging” or the wearing of excessively baggy pants with low hanging crotches are prohibited. As a matter of common courtesy and respect, hats/caps are not to be worn while inside buildings except when there is specific instructional, safety, religious, or medical reasons.
