The parent* has the ultimate responsibility for the student's welfare. It is expected that parents help the student learn, exercise self-control, and develop socially acceptable standards of behavior. Parents have the responsibility to set an example for the student, especially as it affects respect for law, the authority of the school, and the rights and property of others. By example, a parent can instill within the student a desire to learn respect for honest work and an interest in exploring various fields of knowledge.
Parents are requested to study and understand the regulations which govern the student's activities at school, and the consequences of disobeying those regulations. Parents are natural role models for the appropriate behavior expected of students. Parents are urged to become acquainted with the school through open house visitation, parent/teacher conferences, and school functions. Parents are welcome during school hours and are expected to sign in at the main office and obtain a visitor's pass upon entering the school facility.
* The term ‘parent’ also includes legal guardian or person with power to act as a parent.
It is the responsibility of parents to ensure that the student attend school regularly. Parents have the responsibility to inform the school by telephone, by e-mail, or in writing, of their child's absence and the reason thereof. Parents are also responsible to ensure that a student is clean, in good health, free from communicable disease, in compliance with the requirements of Oregon's immunization law, and dressed appropriately.
