School Rules

As a proud San Antonito student, I will show respect to myself and others by:
--Arriving promptly at school every day, 
prepared to learn.

--Keeping my hands, feet, and objects to myself.

--Walking quietly in single file on the right side of hallways.

--Respecting the property of my school and others.

--Listening while others are speaking.

--Following directions quickly and respectfully.

--Asking to borrow things that are not mine.

--Using kind words and actions.
--And always doing my best.
Bullying and aggressive behaviors do not have a place at San Antonito and will not be tolerated. 

 


BEHAVIOR CHOICES AND CONSEQUENCES

  • Students who break a rule will review the rule with their teacher and will practice the behaviors needed to successfully follow the school guidelines.  If the misbehavior continues, the teacher may issue a discipline slip. The discipline slip will outline the specific action done by the student and the consequence given.  discipline slips are signed by the principal and sent home for families to review and sign.  If discipline slips are not signed and returned the next day additional consequences may be given.
  • Consequences for a discipline slip may include community service during recess, which is done by picking up trash around the campus (gloves are wore).
  • If the undesirable behavior continues further the administration will contact the student’s family and set up a conference to discuss the behavior. 
  • If a student repeatedly misbehaves, he/she will be referred to the Health/Mental Health Team and the need to create a Behavior Improvement Plan may be discussed. 
  • Serious behavior offenses are outlined in the APS Student Behavior Handbook and include arson, assault-bullying and/or aggravated, battery/fighting, bomb threat, bus disruption, drugs or tobacco, defiance of authority, gang related activity, disruptive conduct, harassment-disability/sexual, profane language, robbery, vandalism, weapons, etc.  Students who commit a serious offense may be given a discipline slip without a warning and referred to the principal and/or the counselor, who will conference with the student and/or his/her family.  Consequences for a serious offense may include in and/or out of school suspension.

 

 


PHYSICAL EDUCATION 

  • Physical Education is an integral portion of our curriculum. Students are required to participate unless they have a doctor statement allowing them to sit out. Please make sure your student has tennis shoes on their PE days. To ensure you child is prepared for PE on the appropriate days it is recommended that he/she keep an extra pair of tennis shoes in their cubby at school. If a student does not have appropriate shoes on PE days, he/she will walk during PE in the gym as to provide some exercise. If PE is held outside, the student may walk around the track.
