CLASS LETTERS Parents who wish to distribute letters or communications to their child’s class musthave the permission of the building principal before being distributed.CODE OF CONDUCTRichard D. Hubbard Code of ConductHubbard students:Are HONESTAre PERSISTENTAre GOOD CITIZENSAre RESPECTFULAre RESPONSIBLEAre INTERDEPENDENT THINKERSAre CREATIVE, IMAGINITVE, and INNOVATIVEAre UNDERSTANDING and EMPATHETICAre able to MANAGE IMPULSIVITYAre GOOD SPORTSThe expectation for each student at Hubbard School is to develop and display strong character throughrespectful, responsible, honest behavior as well as good citizenship and sportsmanship. Student behavior isthe responsibility of both home and school. Similarly, providing strategies to help students develop Habitsof Mind including persistence, interdependent thinking, creativity, imagination, and innovation, empathy,and the ability to manage impulsivity comes from the partnership between parents and teachers.Even with proper guidance from home and school, children will still have difficulty making the correctchoice from time to time. When they do, the school will use a variety of strategies to ensure that theguidance and discipline provided are learning experiences with the ultimate goal being that the child willnot make the same poor choice again.The primary function of student discipline is to change behavior, not to punish students. Wheneverpossible, logical consequences are given related directly to the infraction. Accordingly, behaviors thatthreaten the health, safety, and welfare of students or staff need responses commensurate with theseriousness of the offense. Some of the consequences used may include:Verbal warningNote to parent/guardianSeparation from peersAssigned seatWritten reflectionService to the schoolMediation between studentsOut-of-School SuspensionPhone call to parent/guardianLoss of recess timeLoss of privilegesDetentionApology noteConferenceIn-School SuspensionExpulsionCONFERENCES for grades K-5 will occur twice during the school year – November/December andMarch.
