The following dress code has been adopted to promote safety, personal hygiene, and a proper academic environment.  Students are expected to maintain a type fo dress that is clean, modest, and is not distracting to teachers or other students and not detrimental or disruptive to the educational process.

  1. Clothing not ordinarily worn in the workplace may not be worn at school. (i.e., robes, pajamas, house slippers, mutilated clothing, etc.).
  2. Shoes must be worn at all times.  For safety reasons, flip flop and platform shoes are discouraged at school.
  3. Shorts and skirts must be at least finger-tip length and not present a distraction in the classroom.
  4. Shirts and tops may not have bare midriffs, or be revealing at the neck, stomach and/or armholes.  The ball of the shoulder must be covered.  Tank tops, athletic undershirts, halter tops, spaghetti strap shirts, and bare midriff shirts are not allowed at school.

  6. Clothing with designs, printed words, or slogans that are suggestive, obscene, in poor taste, or that refer to a substance or activity which is illegal for a minor will not be allowed- clothing which refers to ales, beer, or other alcoholic beverages, smoked or smokeless tobacco, breweries, or illegal drugs may not be worn.
  7. Hats or other types of head covering, such as scarves, sweatbands or bandanas, may not be worn in the building.
  8. Sunglasses may not be worn in the building.
  9. Educationally distracting hair color or makeup will not be allowed.   Hair or makeup which is so conspicuous, extreme, odd in color or style that it draws undue attention, disrupts, or tends to disrupt or interfere with the learning atmosphere at school will not be allowed.

10. Clothing attachments, jewelry, or accessories which could be considered weapons, which could pose a potential risk of injury to the wearer or others, or which could be considered to be disruptive to the educational process may not be worn.  Chains longer than 8 inches may not be worn.

11.  Inappropriate and distracting tattoos may not be displayed.

 

Digital Media Devices/Cell Phone Policy:

We are committed to ensure that a DMD does not interfere with the learning environment and safety procedures or infringe on the privacy of others at Kanesville Elementary.  Therefore, the following procedures will apply to student use of a DMD on school property during school hours:

  1. DMD including student cell phones, music devices, gaming devices, cameras, etc. should not be used during school hours. They are not to be seen, heard or used in any way.
  2. Any DMD seen, heard or used will be confiscated and held in the office.  Parents may pick up the device in the office.
  3. The first offense is a warning.  Subsequent offenses may result in a one day suspension of the student.
  4. The office phone is available for student use, with adult referral, during the school day.  Parents should call the school to get messages to students.
  5. School personnel will not be held responsible for DMD that are lost, stolen or broken at school.
  6. School administration or designee may search DMD based on reasonable suspicion that they may contain evidence of a violation of school/district rules or policy.
  7. School district policies and state and federal laws regarding illegal content on DMD will be enforced.
  8. Any exception to the above procedures must be approved by the building administrator.

 

Release of Students:

For safety reasons, release of students during the school day must be done through the office.  Only those students with proper authorization will be allowed to leave.   PLEASE DO NOT TAKE STUDENTS FROM THE PLAYGROUND WITHOUT CHECKING THEM OUT THROUGH THE OFFICE.

 

Respect:

Children should respect adults.  Any staff member at Kanesville has the right to communicate with any student should conditions warrant.  Students should be taught to respect property and be responsible for lost or damaged school property.

 

Tardies:

IT IS CRITIAL THAT STUDENTS BE ON TIME FOR SCHOOL.  When students come late to class, they miss out on learning, as well as disrupt the learning process.  School begins at 8:45 am.  Please make sure your children are on time.� It is imperative to teach them the importance of being on time.  When your child is late, please have them check in with the office prior to going to class.

 

Use of School Telephones:

Students except in emergencies should not use the office phone.  Students must get permission from their teacher to use the telephone.

Bus Regulations

Transportation:

All students riding buses are expected to comply with the following:

  1. Be courteous to the bus driver, to fellow pupils, and passers-by.
  2. Be on time at the designated bus stop both morning and afternoon.
  3. Walk on the left side of the road facing oncoming traffic, when coming to meet the bus.
  4. Remain seated while the bus is in motion.
  5. Follow directions of the driver in placement on the bus.
  6. Cross the road according to the proper safety procedures.
  7. Do not extend hands, arms, head or any part of the body through bus windows.
  8. Do not open or close windows without permission of the driver.
  9. Do not attempt to leave the bus other than at a regular stop.

10. Talk in normal tones and refrain from loud or vulgar language.

11.  Help keep the bus clean and exercise care to prevent damage.

12. Do not open the emergency door except in case of emergency.

13. Do not, in any manner, destroy school property.

 

Students who refuse to obey promptly the directions of the driver or fail to observe any of the above regulations forfeit the privilege of riding the bus.

Please review safety rules for walking, boarding, and riding the buses with your children. Presentations and lessons are planned to reinforce this at school during the year.

 

BUSSING POLICY:

Due to serious liability and safety concerns with bussing children, the district has asked us to strictly adhere to the bussing policy.

The policy states that drivers are not authorized to allow children to change buses or stop at unassigned spots.

Transporting children to such activities as parties, scouts, sleepovers, achievement days, piano, etc. will not be allowed. Students not on the regular passenger list will not be permitted to ride the bus.  If you feel you must request an exception to this policy, because of extenuating circumstances, (ie: a relative may be taking care of your children while you are out of town), you will need to fill out and get signed a copy of the bussing form from the school office.  You may also call the transportation supervisor at 476-7937 if you have concerns.  We appreciate your cooperation with this important safety issue.

The Parent's Guide to CRTs

Core testing will begin at Kanesville Elementary on Monday April 23rd and end on Friday May 18th for 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th grade students who will be taking the test on the computers.

The Parent's Guide to CRTs

What is a CRT, and how is it used?

As each school year draws to a close, all students in Utah public schools are required to take an end-of-level test. This test is called a CRT (Criterion-Referenced Test) or Core test. The results are used statewide and nationwide to assess student competencies in particular areas. The CRT is based on the Utah Core Curriculum, or the statewide standards that should be taught in each grade. Your child's performance on this test contributes to our school results, which will help determine whether or not Kanesville is meeting the standards of our nation's No Child Left Behind Act. Results are also used to appropriate funding for areas in need of improvement. Educators use the results on a classroom level to determine the effectiveness of teaching strategies.

How can I help my student perform well on the CRT?

Students, educators, parents, and community members can gain access to the Utah Core Curriculum and UTIPS practice tests through the websites below, provided by the Utah State Office of Education. Many teachers use these practice tests at school, but students are also encouraged to use them at home. If you have internet access, please take a moment and review the curriculum for your child's grade. You can quiz them on material, or think of ways to help enhance the learning of these concepts. Students may take the online practice tests as many times as they'd like.

Please remember stress is not good for a child's physical or mental health! While we want to encourage students to take these tests seriously and do their best, we do not want them to worry. The best way to help your child is to discuss his or her feelings (do you feel ready for the test? Is there a certain area you'd like extra help with? etc.), provide nutritious meals during testing times, and make sure he or she gets plenty of sleep. Please try to have your child here on time each day during testing.

When will my child take the CRT?

Tests may be given any time between May 3rd and May 21st. Talk to your child's teacher for more details.
