Policies Pertaining to Daily School Activities

Lost and Found

The school’s lost and found is located in the first locker next to the main office. Parents are urged to label children’s clothing for easy return. Items not claimed within a month are donated to charitable organizations.

Daily Sign In-Out

Parents/guardians are required to sign their children in (if late) or out (early dismissal) every day to ensure a record of who dropped off and picked up your children. The Sign In/Out binder is located just inside the main office.

Lunch

Escuela Avancemos! provides free meals for students who are eligible for free/reduced lunch.

Lunch area

Our community values manners and behavior during lunch:

  • Students will sit and eat for a minimum of 25 minutes before being excused for lunch recess.
  • Students must clear the table/area of their individual eating area before being dismissed.
  • Personal trash must be disposed of before a student leaves the lunch area.
  • Food throwing is not allowed.

Personal Electronic Equipment

If parents want students to have cell phones for use before or after school, the cell phone must be kept in the student’s backpack or locker during the day in the “off” position or in “Flight Mode”. Teachers may grant exceptions to this rule if use of the personal electronic equipment can be used for an educational purpose. All property brought to school is brought at the owner’s risk. Escuela Avancemos! cannot assume responsibility for any property belonging to students.

Responsibility for Personal Property

All personal property brought to school is brought at the owner’s risk. Escuela Avancemos! cannot assume responsibility for any property belonging to students.

Homework

Students will be doing most of their schoolwork during school hours. Each classroom will provide families with their specific homework policies. While homework will be assigned, the biggest expectation is that students and families take time to read together every night.

Birthdays

Parents/guardians need to communicate with the class teacher regarding any food items brought into class for a child’s birthday.

Parental Involvement

Escuela Avancemos! encourages parents to be involved in our learning community and we ask parents to follow expectations and protocols when volunteering in a classroom or completing a task such as recess supervisor, lunch aide, or others. Parents must sign in with the office when arriving at the school. All volunteers must be in the company of an Escuela Avancemos! staff member unless the office has record and a copy of their current finger print authorization card from the state of Michigan.
