The school day begins at 8:20. Students who walk or are dropped off should not arrive until 8:00.
Supervision before school does not start until that time. Regular dismissal time is 3:15 for students who
are walkers or being picked up. Buses will arrive at Strawberry Hill at 3:25. For scheduled professional
development days, the early release time is 12:15 for walkers or those being picked up.
Schools are responsible for teaching your child. Regular school attendance is important to a child's
academic performance. When students come to school regularly and on time, they develop a sense that
school is important. When school is missed, activities such as class discussions, experiments, and
demonstrations cannot be fully re-taught. We understand that there are times when it is necessary for a
student to be absent. In these cases, please call the Strawberry Hill office at 462-3549 before 9:00 a.m.
each day. If we have not heard from you, we will call to verify an absence.
The school will respond to student attendance problems in accordance with board policy RP501.4.
Appropriate school personnel will make an effort to resolve attendance problems by:
1. Establishing direct contact with parents or guardians after the second unexcused absence within 2. Utilizing available support staff and maintain written documentation of suspected truancies
3. Involving the school nurse when illness is used as a reason for excessive absences
4. Informing the family in writing of the attendance issue after the sixth unexcused absence and/or
excessive tardies (unless the administrator has knowledge of long-term health issues) 5. Consulting with other agencies that may be involved with the family and make home visits where After a student has accrued eight (8) days of unexcused absences in the same quarter or fifteen (15) unexcused absences in an academic year, the building administrator will schedule a team meeting with the principal, team, parent, student, and counselor. If a student has ten (10) or more days of consecutive absences or pattern of absences, a doctor's excuse may be requested. A plan for remediation will be created and the compulsory attendance laws will be reviewed with the parent(s). If absences continue and the child has missed in excess of eight (8) unexcused days in a quarter or fifteen (15) unexcused days during the school year, the school administrator will inform the parent/guardian in writing that due to lack of improvement in the attendance of their child, the school will be referring the student and the parent/guardian to the District Truant Officer and/or Superintendent for a hearing. If the mediation hearing does not improve attendance issues, the Jones County Attorney will be contacted for further legal action. Absences are recorded in the following way: If a student becomes ill and leaves school before 10:00 a.m. or after 2:00 p.m., they will be recorded as absent for that half-day. If a student arrives late but before 10:00 a.m., they will be counted tardy. If a student is picked up after 2:00 p.m. they will not be recorded as absent. Late buses do not count as a tardy. Students Leaving School Early: If it becomes necessary to pick your child up from school during the
day, please call the office or send a note to the classroom teacher. For the safety of each student,
teachers are not to release a pupil from the classroom unless they have a written note or the parent has
called the office. No student will be released early to anyone other than parents, legal guardians, or
emergency contacts (proper identification may be necessary) without the express written consent or
phone consent from parents. Please come to the office, if picking your child up from school early.
We will call your child to the office. If after school arrangements change, please notify the office at
least one hour before dismissal time
Emergency Notification: Your phone number and an emergency number will be requested at registration. It is important for the school to have accurate, up-to-date information so you can be located in case of injury or illness. Please contact the office with phone numbers and/or address changes that occur throughout the year. A full-time school nurse is available to administer medications and first-aid. Parents will be contacted in case of illness or serious injury. If your child is badly hurt and needs a physician's care immediately, we need to reach someone who can give the permission for treatment. If you cannot be reached, someone needs to be able to care for your child until you can be reached. It is important to have a local number. Medications If your child is to take any type of medication at school, please comply with the following: 1. Prescription Medications must be in the correct pharmacy container. 2. Written permission from the parent and doctor is needed which includes the time and dose to be 3. Qualified school personnel will administer the medication. 4. Further questions should be directed to the school nurse. Protocol for Illness You can help safeguard the health of your student as well as other children in the same class by following the suggestions below: • Keep your child home when he/she has a temperature above 100 degrees, has vomiting, diarrhea or shows signs of other serious illness. • Your child should stay home until they have been free from fever, vomiting and diarrhea for 24 hours. They should be free from fever WITHOUT the use of any fever-reducers, such as Tylenol, Advil, Motrin or generic forms of acetaminophen or ibuprofen. They should be able to keep food or drink down without vomiting for 24 hours before they return to school. • Your student needs adequate sleep. Ten to twelve hours of sleep each night is recommended. • Please call the elementary school if your child is sick or has a contagious illness so other students may be watched more closely. Otherwise a note should be sent to the teacher explaining the reason for each absence. Contact the school if your child is suspected or known to have a communicable disease. The school nurse will talk with you as to when your student can return to school. Examples of diseases that should be reported are chicken pox, head lice, pink eye, and impetigo. SUN SAFETY
The Anamosa Community School District Health Services, along with the Iowa Department of Education, the Food and Drug Administration, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, among other organizations recognize that the sun's ultraviolet (UV) radiation can cause skin cancer.

High expectations are held for students both academically and behaviorally at Strawberry Hill. We expect the following expectations for our students and encourage parents to support their children to meet them with integrity. • Be responsible for their own actions. • Observe all safety rules for the security of themselves and others. • Respect themselves, other students, and adults as well as the property of others. • Exhibit trustworthiness in all situations. • Follow classroom expectations within the classroom as they are set. • Refrain from harassment and bullying of others as it is stated in the Anamosa Board Policy. • Engage in classroom activities and academic tasks. • Become independent learners and effective communicators. • Respect the differences in others. • Achieve at the highest level of their capacity for learning. STUDENT DISCIPLINE Strawberry Hill Elementary will provide a safe and orderly school environment. The purpose of school is to provide an environment where students can be successful academically, socially, physically, and emotionally. School staff is responsible for maintaining a safe learning environment where all students can learn and be successful. There are instances when consequences will be enforced due to inappropriate behavior or conduct. The administrators are ultimately responsible for managing and overseeing the school wide discipline plan and will communicate with students, parents, and teachers as it is necessary to assist with resolving behavior issues on school property and during school time. A five level system is in place to help define inappropriate behaviors as well as identify possible consequences that would suit the infraction of school rules. Each level increases with intensity of the behavior as well as the consequence and guides decision making for discipline referrals. It is ultimately the duty of the teacher to maintain an orderly classroom and to enforce classroom expectations as well as implement consequences for inappropriate behaviors. Teachers are expected to communicate with parents concerning misbehavior. The administration will only become involved in instances when the behavior causes serious disruption to the classroom, greatly diminishes the safety of the student and others, threatens the immediate safety of the learning environment, and when the behavior is a consistent disruption of others' learning. OLWEUS: Bullying Prevention Program
Bullying Defined: A person is bullied when he or she is exposed, repeatedly and over time, to negative actions on the part of one or more persons, and he or she has difficulty defending him or herself. Strawberry Hill students: • will not bully others. • will try to help others who are bullied. • will try to include others who are left out. • will tell an adult at home and at school, if we know someone is being bullied. Students should report any instances of bullying behavior to their teacher. Any conflict or inappropriate behavior can be handled quickly by the classroom teacher. With young children, it is often difficult to determine if a situation is a conflict between students OR bullying behavior. Strawberry Hill uses a screening tool when a bullying complaint is brought forward. This tool is aligned to the policy of the Anamosa School Board which is aligned to state law. When the situation meets criteria for bullying, an investigation will occur. Students will be required to participate during the investigation of a bullying situation.

Students may bring store bought treats to share with their classmates. Students having a summer
birthday should make arrangements with their teacher if they wish to acknowledge their birthday during
the school year. Please DO NOT have balloons or flowers delivered to the school. Invitations to
personal birthday parties need to be handled out of the school setting and will not be allowed to
be distributed at school.
This is requested to eliminate hurt feelings. Please note that we do not give
out names and addresses of our families.
Cell Phones/Telephone Use by Students:
Students may have cell phones at school, but they must be turned off and stored in book bags or lockers
during school hours. If a cell phone owned by any student causes disruption in learning for themselves or
any other student, it will be confiscated and stored until an adult can retrieve the phone. The cell phone
will be stored in the principal's office. Please call the office to leave a message for students. The school
secretaries will relay the information to the classroom teacher. Students may not use school phones
unless given permission. Students are not encouraged to call home unless it is an emergency.
Classroom Visitation:
Visitors are welcome in our school. We are eager to share the individual and group activities that make
up the Strawberry Hill educational program. Please use the following procedures when setting up a visit
to the classroom:
1. Make an appointment with the classroom teacher. 2. Level One volunteers will complete a Volunteer Disclosure Statement before volunteering. 3. Sign in and out in Strawberry Hill Office. 4. Wear a nametag at all times. 5. Please observe, work with students as assigned, or work on teacher assigned projects. 6.

shall assume responsibility for their actions regarding this policy. Each student and parent will be

Dress Code:

The student's parent(s) will be called to notify them of the infraction and requested to bring more appropriate attire for their child. 3. Clothing that can be considered revealing or is inappropriate for the school environment will need to be covered or changed. 4. WINTER WEATHER ATTIRE: Winter coats, snow pants, winter hats, gloves, and boots are required for students to play in the snow. If a student does not have boots or snow pants, they may not play in the snow but can be on the concrete areas for recess. If a student does not have appropriate winter weather attire in any combination, they may be required to stay indoors for their safety. Field Trips:
Each grade level takes at least one field trip each year. Parents often accompany children on field trips
and we appreciate the extra hands and supervision. If you are planning on attending a field trip, we ask
that siblings and younger children stay back. The purpose of chaperones is to provide additional
supervision, which can be difficult when there are additional children to watch. It is also a special time for
you to share with your child who is on the field trip.
Teachers will send home notes and explain the procedure for signing up as a chaperone for field trips.
Often the seating on the bus is limited so parents who have checked in with teachers will drive separately
to the location to join the class.

Leaving School Grounds:
Students are NOT allowed to leave school grounds during school hours. If a student leaves school
grounds without permission, local law enforcement will be notified immediately to assist in the search of
the student. Parents will be notified immediately.
Legal Documentation:
If your family or child is involved in a legal issue that involves custodial rights or any other matter that
affects the health and well-being of the child, please notify the office immediately with the appropriate
legal documentation
so that the school can put in place procedures to ensure the safety and security of
the child. Please highlight the sections within the document that are essential for the school to know. We
will not become involved in matters not directly related to the child's educational needs.

Lost and Found:
A lost and found area is located in each hallway. As soon as a student realizes that an item is missing,
he/she should check these areas as well as the office immediately. We strongly urge that all clothing and
personal property be labeled with the student's name.

Parent Concerns:
If a parent has a concern regarding their child at school, they must speak with the appropriate school
personnel. Please speak with your child's classroom teacher first. The school nurse and counselors are
available to speak with you about health, social, and emotional concerns. All concerns regarding
school personnel need to be reported to school administration
