To maintain high standards of achievement, good behavior is imperative. In order to have and keep a safe and orderly school environment, we teach and reinforce school-wide expectations and routines. We expect students and staff to treat each other with respect so that learning is not impeded. Our school-wide discipline plan is designed to apply rules consistently in each classroom, as appropriate for the various age levels.
