Student/Parent Handbook

Student Dress Code


The dress code at Martin Luther King, Jr. K-8 School has been developed to set a standard that is considered appropriate for a K-8 learning environment.  All students are expected to be neat and clean and to wear apparel that is appropriate in a K-8 setting.

The following are not considered appropriate at Martin Luther King, Jr. K-8 School.

  • No bare feet, open toed, open heeled, strapless shoes.

Students should dress to allow for participation in ALL activities, including physical education and recess.

Cell Phone/Other Electronic Devices Usage


Though students are permitted to carry their cell phones during the school day, use of cell phones are prohibited during school hours. Cell phones must be turned off and removed from visibility during school hours. Forgetting to turn the cell phone off is not an acceptable excuse.

Lost and Found


Lost items are kept in two barrels near the stage in the Multipurpose Room.  Unclaimed articles are sent to the PTA Clothes Closet prior to the Winter Holidays and at the end of the year.

Medication at School


Students may not bring medication, including cough drops, to school without authorization.  Medical authorization forms may be obtained from the school office and must be renewed each school year.  This form must be signed by both a parent/guardian and the physician.
