ACCEPTABLE COMPUTER USE POLICY
With Internet access, comes the availability of material that may not be considered to be of educational value in the context of the school setting. Precautions have been taken to restrict access to objectionable materials. However, it is impossible to control all material and a user may discover controversial or inappropriate information. We believe that the valuable information and interaction available on the Internet outweigh the possibility that users may obtain objectionable material. The violation of any guide lines or prohibitions listed in the
Acceptable Use Policy can result in disciplinary or legal action. We require all students and their parents to sign a consent form for school Internet use. A copy of the Acceptable Use Policy is available on the Adams website. Internet access in the Logan City School District is a privilege and not a right.

APPEARANCE AND DRESS POLICY
School dress and personal grooming should be appropriate for the educational setting and school experience. Clothing should not detract from nor interfere with appropriate school conduct, safety, and participation. Please keep in mind that students are expected to actively play both inside and outside almost year‑round. Adherence to appropriate dress and grooming expectations is the responsibility of the student and parents. Enforcement of the standards is the responsibility of parents, school, staff and administration. The policy provides discretion for the principal when defining inappropriate dress.
Clothing should be neat, clean, and must cover underwear completely. Gang clothing or inappropriate insignias, phrases, or mottos will not be allowed. Additionally, clothing which promotes alcohol, drugs, or violence are prohibited. Hair should be clean and well groomed. Distracting appearance and/or abbreviated clothing is considered unacceptable school wear.
Some specific dress standards for our school are:
- Shoes are required at all times. Because children will be expected to play outside, please ensure that their shoes are appropriate for active play. For safety reasons, flip flops are not allowed.
- Students may wear shorts as long as they cover underwear completely and do not detract from nor interfere with school activities.
- Halter‑tops and midriffs are not appropriate for school. Sleeveless tops may be worn if they do not detract from nor interfere with the school experience. Shoulder straps must cover shoulder.
- Sunglasses and hats are not to be worn in the building.
- During the winter, students are still going outside for recess. Students need to come prepared for cold and snow. Snowsuits and boots should be removed upon arrival at school.
Appearance and Dress Policy for Adults in the Building
The dress code for adults is business casual. This includes slacks or khakis, dress shirt or blouse, open‑collar or polo shirt, optional tie or seasonal sport coat, and/or a dress or skirt. Appropriate footwear includes shoes or sandals, but no flip‑flops. Dress jeans (no holes, tears, or frays) and clean sneakers are appropriate as well. Adults should be covered from collarbone to above the knee, give or take a couple of inches. No hats are allowed in the building. The last day of any week is designated as “School Spirit” day (blue jeans and school t‑shirt can be worn.) Specific clothing can be worn appropriately to the activity if some event out of the norm is occurring (e.g. Field Trip, Fun Run, science project, art project, etc). Job title specific clothing will also be allowed for people such as a PE teacher, custodian, life skills or lunch lady. This policy will be enforced at the discretion of the principal.
ARRIVAL AND DEPARTURE
The outside doors will be unlocked at 8:00 a.m. Students should not arrive before the opening of the building, unless coming for breakfast. The west doors will be unlocked at 7:30 a.m. for those coming for breakfast. School begins at 8:15 a.m. and dismisses at 2:35 p.m. Please remember there is no adult supervision on school grounds before and after school. Unless a child is involved with After‑School Club, or other programs (ex:orchestra), they are expected to go home immediately following dismissal from school.
Parents may pick up their children in designated areas on 600 North and 400 East. Please do not park in the handicapped or bus areas. Parking on 500 north is for pick up and drop off only, and you should stay with your car. Parking on 400 east is for short‑term parking. Please do not encourage your child to run across 400 East or 500 North to be picked up as these roads are heavily traveled.

Please encourage your child to be in his/her classroom when the bell rings at 8:10 a.m. We require a parent signature on the letter that explains our attendance policy.
Students that are habitually tardy disrupt the educational environment and deprive themselves of educational opportunity. Please help us teach your child that punctuality is an important life skill.
The State Board of Education and the Logan City School District require that all children achieve mastery in the essential understandings of reading, language arts, and mathematics. Absence from school interferes with the child’s opportunity to master these skills. According to the Utah Compulsory Attendance Law parents are responsible for their child’s attendance at school. The following reasons have been identified by the school district as reasonable for an “excused absence”: illness; medical appointment; family emergency, death of a family member or close friend; family activity or travel on a limited basis.
Parents should schedule appointments and vacations outside of school time. Please call the School(755‑2320) or send a written excuse each time your child is absent or tardy.
Additionally, students that are habitually tardy to school are also addressed in the Utah Compulsory Attendance Law and could be referred to truancy court.
If a student becomes ill at school, parents will be contacted. If a parent is not at home, those individuals listed by the parent on the student information card will be contacted. If a child must leave the school during school hours, parents should send a note with him/her to notify the teacher.
STUDENT CHECK IN AND OUT PROCEDURES
A student must check in at the office if they arrive after 8:10 am and when returning to school after being checked out. Teachers will not admit a student without confirmation from the office staff or principal.
To check a student out of school, the parent or an authorized adult must first go to the office and show ID. We cannot release a student without the authorized adult coming into the office to show ID. Students must be signed out on the student check out record in the office. Teachers will not release students to anyone without confirmation from the office staff or principal.
