Dress Code

See handbook for dress code guidelines:

  • Shoes (sandals must have strap – no flip flops)
  • Clothing (no tank tops or spaghetti straps)
make up work
Make-Up Work

Beck’s Guidelines:

  • Make-up work may be requested only if a child has been absent for more than two days. Parents may email the front office before 9:00 a.m. to request homework on the second day of an absence. The make-up work will then be available at the front desk at 3:20 p.m. on the second day.
  • Work will not be sent home with siblings, neighbors, or friends.

Teachers often need to work with children when they return to school, so not all work will be sent home.

birthday celebrations
Birthday Celebrations
  • Parents may provide a treat for a child’s birthday that will be served during the last hour of the day. Please provide individual servings for the celebration (i.e., cupcakes, cookies, etc.).
  • Napkins must be provided.
  • Treats are to be dropped off at the front office, or the student may bring them to the classroom in the morning.
  • Parents are not to be in attendance at this time, and we do not take pictures of this celebration.
  • Personal party invitations may not be handed out during the school day. The child, however, may stand outside the classroom door as students are leaving for the day to pass out party invitations.
