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.
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.
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.
When a medical authorization form is properly filled out (must be signed by parent/guardian and physician, it will be placed on file with the school) the student may take the necessary prescribed medication at school under the supervision of the clerk, a school nurse, the office manager, or the principal.
Bullying behavior that involves student to student aggression may be reported to any SCUSD employee or administrator verbally or in writing. Although not required, the district’s Report of Suspected Bullying Form may be used to make a report.
