Itis important that each student makes every effort to be on time. Teachers beginwith critical instruction at the start of the school day as soon as theattendance is taken. It is an interruption in the school program when studentsarrive late to class. Students who are tardy may be required to make up timeduring recesses on the day that they are tardy. Students will either work onmissed assignments or read. Medical,counseling and court appointments do not count as a tardy, but all other late arrivalsdo count as a tardy regardless if the parent has excused the child or not.

The healthand nutrition of our students is one of our primary concerns. We have numerous children and adults whosuffer from various allergies; some are life threatening. In addition, our district has adopted apolicy to limit the number of non-nutritional snacks offered at school. Generally speaking due to allergies and dietaryrestrictions we do not have parents bring treats for their student’s specialevent such as a birthday. Classrooms have two parties each year. Those dates are selected by the teacher. Manyclassrooms have limited the types of treats that may be served at their twoparties during the school year due to allergies and dietary restrictions. When treat is permissible, please remember,all treats to be distributed at school must be commercially made and fruit mustbe cut and processed in a commercial kitchen. We can not distribute home baked goods or home cut fruits due topotential problems with Hepatitis and other infectious diseases.

Theseguidelines must be followed:
Students willbe asked to change if their clothing does not match the school dresspolicy. We have a limited amount ofclothing for students to borrow if their attire is not appropriate forschool. Sometimes what we have does notfit the child. In those cases, theparent will need to bring a change of appropriate clothes before the studentmay return to school activities.

We expect these guidelines to be followed byevery member of our school community, including students, staff, and anyvisitors to our building. These guidelinesare learned and practiced in each classroom, and are posted in each room andclassroom in the building.

An Important Reminder
In life,natural consequences face us each day, in every decision we make. School is asafe place where children learn which decisions are the most productive: thosewhich produce positive natural consequences. Thus, even playground and social situations are vast learning groundsfor making good decisions. Therefore,logical ‘natural consequences’ are used when less positive decisions aremade. This could include being “out”,receiving a short time-out, a conference with a supervisor, the counselor,teacher, or sometimes the principal. Allof these consequences have the same positive goal: to help each childlearn to make good decisions.
In the eventwhen a child participates in bullying, intimidation and harassment notcorrected by discussion or the above measures; parents will be involved anddistrict discipline procedures will be used. While these instances are rare; they are taken seriously and handledimmediately. The policies and procedurespertaining to this are covered in the District Policy and Procedure manual whichis sent home each year.

The board believes that the educationof children is a joint responsibility, one it shares with the parents and thecommunity. To insure that the best interests of the child are served in thisprocess, a strong program of communication and/or collaboration between homeand school must be maintained. The board believes that it is the parents whohave the ultimate responsibility for their children's in‑school academicachievement and behavioral conduct. During school hours, the board, through itsdesignated staff, shall strive to serve the interests of parents in providingfor the safety, health and welfare of their children.

· Collaboratingwith parents, students and staff in school improvement planning, developmentand implementation; and
· Providinginterested parents of preschool children with information and/or training onsuccessful parenting practices.
For the benefit of children, the boardbelieves that parents have a responsibility to encourage their child'sperformance in school by:
· Supportingthe schools in requiring that the children observe all school rules andregulations, and by accepting their own responsibility for children's willfulin‑school behavior;
· Sendingchildren to school with proper attention to their health, personal cleanlinessand dress;

Information about the PE Program
Aberdeen SchoolDistrict Physical Education Program is implementing a new curriculum, “Five forLife.” Traditional physical education programs are primarily motor skill-based;Aberdeen School District is raising the bar by using this innovative fitness,academic and motor skill program to provide students with a comprehensivefitness and health education. This K-12 program is designed to engage studentsin fun, meaningful lessons that promote activity, proper nutrition and higherlevels of fitness. Aberdeen School District is committed to providing a qualityPhysical Education program that builds knowledge, fitness, movement skills,social well-being and confidence, so all students can enjoy a healthy activelifestyle.
Understandinghow fitness affects general long-term health and performance will empowerstudents to make informed decisions about their lives. The goal is to providestudents with a variety of fitness experiences, so they can manage theirpersonal fitness.
As part ofthis curriculum, students will receive developmentally appropriate instructionin topics such as: the five components of fitness, goal setting, nutrition, theskeletal system, the muscular system, and training principles. In PhysicalEducation your child will also participate in fitness measurements to evaluatetheir current fitness levels in the five components of fitness, which include:cardiorespiratory endurance, muscular strength, muscular endurance, flexibilityand body composition. Your child’s fitness levels are compared to minimumhealth related standards that have been developed for children of the same ageand sex.
Fitnessmeasurements consist of three phases: pre-measurements, goal setting and postmeasurements. Phase one is the pre-measurements. Its purpose is to gatherinformation about the student’s beginning fitness levels. By finding theirstarting point, students develop an awareness of their own fitness and health.It is important that students do not view this as a competition, but rather astarting point to improve personal fitness.
Thegoal-setting phase is an essential part of your child understanding their ownfitness and how to improve it. During this phase, students set realistic goalsfor cardiorespiratory endurance, muscular strength, muscular endurance andflexibility. After the goals are set, students begin to work towardsimprovement using curriculum that is specifically designed to help them reachtheir goals.
Near the endof the year or the term post-measurements are taken. The purpose is to gatherdata that demonstrates the student’s fitness progress. All students have theopportunity to take pride in achieving their personal goals. Students willreceive two student/parent reports: one after pre measurements and anotherafter post-measurements. These reports will track their progress in achievingtheir personal fitness goals.
All Aberdeenschools will complete the following fitness measurements:
Protocols andstandards for the above fitness measurements are derived from the President’sChallenge Physical Fitness and Activity Program and the Cooper InstituteFitnessgram.
Thissystematic approach to the development of fitness begins to build a value ofhow to maintain or improve individual fitness. Measurements are discreetlyrecorded and their personal fitness report is generated to provide you with asnapshot of your son’s or daughter’s fitness.
Pleaseencourage and assist your child to improve their fitness by participating withthem in physical activities and making healthy choices about the foods you eat.

This is a piece of information used toassist you and your child in monitoring the body’s natural changes duringgrowth, which in turn helps with understanding body composition and assistsstudents in creating lifetime fitness and nutrition plans.
You may choose to have your child’sBMI information excluded from their fitness measurements report. If you do notwish to have your child’s height and weight status information included, pleaseprint and sign your name below and return this form to his/her PE teacher.
