RULES AND REGULATIONS
The following rules and regulations are subject to change in response to the needs of Milestones Community School. Classroom attendance is vital because many instructional activities include the following: demonstrations, cooperative learning experiences, videos, oral directions/ explanations, and the practice of appropriate social skills. We believe that classroom learning experiences which are interactive are more effective than passive learning experiences, which are not interactive and done outside the classroom.
Students are expected to be neatly, cleanly and appropriately dressed in school uniform. School uniform is red, white, or blue polo style shirts. Pants, shorts, and skirts must be khaki or navy blue. Skirts and shorts may be no more than 2 inches above the knee. Coats, jackets, hoodies, etc are not allowed in the classroom.
Educational materials will be provided by Milestones Community School. Students are expected to take good care of their materials. A list of necessary school supplies will be provided at the beginning of each quarter. Students that cause intentional damage to school materials will be billed for replacement.
Daily attendance is important for your child's academic success. We understand situations occur and will try to accomadate your child's needs. If a child is absent the guardian will be notified to confirm his/her abseence. Child must be accompanied by a note from guardian upon return to school. If attendance becomes an issue a conference will be scheduled.
