This is Principal Laurie Balsano Wright with your Falcon Flyer for the upcoming week. I’d like to give a huge shout out to Cheyenne Brady and our PTC for putting together a wonderful Staff Appreciation Week last week. Our teachers and staff were showered with love, beautiful door signs, delicious treats all week long, and a heart-felt video. Thank you so much for your creativity and hard work. We are so lucky to have our amazing Skyridge PTC.
School campus remains closed to parent visitors during school hours. Parents and other visitors are not permitted on campus during the school day. At drop off and dismissal, parents and guardians are asked to remain in the parking lot. Please take a moment to review the Parking Lot Safety Protocols and look over the parking lot map.
Dress Code Reminder
Parents, please review the Dress Code with your child.
The school district board policy requires that a student shall be neat, clean, and shall observe the general styles of dress, hair, and grooming which the principal and teachers consider to be appropriate for the age level and classroom or playground activities. Any type of dress or grooming that is disruptive to the class/school will not be permitted. Personal appearance standards for students are defined in the following dress code:
No clothing or personal items that disrupt the educational process.
Students may not wear clothing or jewelry that contains any inappropriate images or wording that include, but are not limited to, sexual content, alcohol, tobacco, other drugs, or violence.
Clothing must be sufficient to conceal all undergarments at all times.
Halter tops, bare midriffs, spaghetti straps, low cut or revealing tops, mesh or see-through tops, bareback tops, crop tops and half-shirts are not allowed. Straps on blouses must be at least one inch wide.
Shorts, skirts, and dresses must pass the following test in order to be considered acceptable: Standing, with arms relaxed at each side, the ends of your index finger shall touch the bottom of the garment
If leggings, “yoga” pants, and/or tights are worn, the hem of the top must reach at or below the index finger, if there is a slit or holes in the clothing, these must be below your index finger.
Shoes should be appropriate for walking and running, and cannot interfere with the P.E. program or recess activities. Shoes without a back (e.g. flip-flops or clogs), or with a heel greater than two inches, are not safe to wear during physical activities, and therefore are not allowed.
Any kind of accessory that is deemed inappropriate is not allowed. This includes but not limited to wallet chains, spikes, and handcuffs.
Students wearing inappropriate attire or footwear will be sent to the office, and will first call their parent or guardian. Students will be given the option to change into appropriate clothing at the site. Students who repeatedly violate the dress code will receive disciplinary consequences.
