Policies

All JSD policies can be viewed online at policy.jordandistrict.org.

Dress Code (AS419)
Students shall dress in a manner that shows respect for the educational environment and befits the day’s activities. Student clothing and jewelry should be safe and free from disruptive pictures or messages. Flip-flops are a safety concern. Students are encouraged to wear footwear with an enclosed toe and heel strap at a minimum. Hats may not be worn in the school. Tank, halter, or spaghetti-strap tops may be worn with a shirt underneath that has a collar and sleeves. Shorts/Skirts should reach mid-thigh when the student is sitting.

Drug and Alcohol Policy (AS90)
Illegal drugs, alcohol, and tobacco are not permitted on our school campus. With the exception of asthma inhalers, students may not have prescription or over-the-counter medications in their possession. Prescription and/or over-the-counter medications may be administered by a parent during the school day or by trained staff in the main office with a written directive from a physician (see the office for paperwork).

Exclusion Policy Summary (AS67 NEG)
Jordan School District students and employees are entitled to a learning/working environment free from unlawful and violent acts. Acts of violence, use or possession of a weapon or facsimile, criminal behavior, and gang activity in or about district schools, property, or activities shall be dealt with in accordance with district policy and the law.

Attendance (AA432)
Regular attendance is key to academic success. Utah’s Compulsory Education Law states that all school age children must be in attendance at school unless there is a valid and legitimate excuse (Utah Code 53-A-11-101). You will receive an automated phone call if your child was marked absent for the day. Please contact the main office if your child will miss a day of school.

Bicycles and Scooters
Bicycles and scooters may be ridden to school, but they must NOT be ridden on the school grounds or in the crosswalks. The bike racks at the back of the school are for students in grades 1-6. Bike racks are available near the main entrance for patrons and Kindergarten students.

Electronics (AS67)
Computer games, IPODs, pagers, laser pointers toys, trading cards, collectibles, etc. are not allowed at school. Students who carry cell phones must turn them off during school hours. The teacher or the main office will hold electronic items confiscated for improper use until parents are able to pick them up.


Celebrating Great Kids

Student Conduct
Proactice, positive behavior is important. To help students learn and maintain good behavior, we will teach behavior expectations for each area of the school, practice good citizenship at school, and recognize students for their appropriate behavior.

Caught Ya’ Being a Leader
Students will be given Caught Ya’ cards when they are “caught being good.”  Weekly drawings are held on Friday and students are recognized over the intercom.

Leader of the Month
Each month, teachers select one student as their Leaders of the Month. Once a month, students who were chosen as Leaders of the Month are invited to the Leader In Me Breakfast.

Rocky Ram Leadership Award
Each grade level has a set of goals for their students to work on throughout the school year. Students should complete goals in the areas of Academics, Self, and Service. In order to achieve the Rocky Ram Leadership Award, students must complete 12 out of the 15 grade level goals. Students will receive a pennant and a pin.
