At Kendall-Whittier, school-wide expectations are posted and taught for all common areas - halls, cafeteria, recess, library, bathrooms, etc. Additionally, every classroom creates their own Class Charter defining and using the following guidelines: respect self, respect others, and respect property.
Consequences will be determined based on each individual situation and in accordance with district policies.
Severe disruption or extreme behavior may result in immediate removal of the student from the classroom and/or suspension of student from school.
(Example: verbal or physical aggression, disrespect to adults, possession of a weapon or disruption of the learning environment – See Behavior Response Plan).
Toys and laser pointers ARE NOT ALLOWED at school.
They will be confiscated and held until a parent picks the item up. If there are further occurrences, the item will not be returned.
Weapons are defined by Tulsa Public Schools as anything that creates a threat to the safety of students or school staff.
May be brought by students but must be turned off and kept with the teacher or locked in a locker until the end of the school day;
A permission slip must be signed by the parent allowing the student to have a cell phone at school;
If the privilege is abused by the student, the teacher has the right to confiscate the phone, at which point the parent will be contacted to retrieve it in the school office, and the student will lose the privilege of bringing it to school.
