  • DRESS CODE (students)

     

    The dress and appearance of students has a significant effect upon conduct and behavior while at school. It is expected that students will be dressed and groomed appropriately for the age group of the individual. Carolina Forest International Elementary School, in accordance to OCS Board Policy has adopted the following dress code guidelines:

    * No hats inside of building.

    * Appropriate shoes should be worn for safety reasons keeping in mind students have daily recess and physical activity. Flip flops are not safe footwear and should not be worn. Shoes should have a heel strap.

    * No brief or revealing attire. Shorts, skirts, and skorts must be appropriate length (generally fingertip length). Baggy pants/shorts are not permitted. A jacket or shirt should be worn over/under tank tops and spaghetti strap shirts/dresses.

    * Clothing that encourages the use of tobacco, alcohol or other drugs, or contains the use of profanity is not permitted.

  • Behavior is being taken care using our classroom money. You will be notified of major events and repetitive behaviors. 

     

    DOJO is being used solely for transitions and enrichment classes. Students will pay money for talking, not following directions, etc. Students will be able to earn money for doing what they are expected to do. 

     

    Coupons will be available for purchase by students that have enough money for privileges such as working at the teacher's desk, free time to color/draw (15 min), write with a pen, work in the class library, candy pass, no shoes in the classroom, wear PJ's to school, etc. 😊

     

    In addition, students will have opportunities to "cash-in" their money for movies, treats, hot coco, Popsicles, board game time, etc.
