Roy Junior High School

SCHOOL POLICIES AND PROCEDURES FOR STUDENTS

 

ATHLETICS

Roy Jr. High offers:  Football, Softball, Volleyball, NAL (National Academic League), Boys Basketball, Girls Basketball, Baseball, Track and Field.

 

ATTENDANCE

According to Utah State Law and School Board Policy:  “The student is responsible to be present in class and the parent, guardian, or other person having control of any such minor between six and eighteen years of age shall be required to send such minor to school during the regularly established school day in the attendance area of residence.”  Students are expected to be at school in each class each day unless properly excused by their parents, administration, advisor, or teacher.  A student not properly excused will be considered truant.

Truancies may result in:

  1. A drop in citizenship in the missed classes
  2. In-School Solutions
  3. Referral to the Administration
  4. Suspension and/or referral to the District Office

Parents may excuse students for illness and/or family emergencies.  When parents request to have their children excused for reasons other than illness or family emergencies, arrangements for such absences should be made in advance.

 

When a student is absent from school, a phone call to the school (801-476-5264) by the parent or guardian will excuse the student for that day.  Absences not properly excused will be considered truant.

 

Tardies: In order to optimize the opportunity students have for an education at Roy Junior High School, we feel that it is extremely important for students to be in class on time.  Punctuality is a very important life skill and students need to begin developing this skill by making every effort to be on time, ready to begin when the bell rings.

Consistent tardiness will result in the following consequences:



Checking in and out of school:  Sometimes doctor appointments, dentist appointments, and family emergencies, etc. cause a student to arrive late or leave early from school. When arriving late, the procedure is a phone call to the attendance secretary (801-476-5264).   When leaving early, a parent, legal guardian or someone designated as an emergency contact will be allowed to excuse a student.  The parent or legal guardian can call the school ahead of time to have the student in the office waiting for them.  The parent or legal guardian must provide adequate identification in the school and sign their student out.  If a student becomes ill or is involved in an accident and the school cannot reach a parent/guardian, we will use the emergency contacts you have designated for such emergencies.

 

BACK TO SCHOOL NIGHT

Our Back to School Night will be held on August 23, 2021 from 4:00-7:00 p.m.  This will be organized as an informal open house.  Teachers will be in their classrooms for students and parents to meet.  Please plan to be with us. There will be a 7th grade orientation/building tour from 4:00-5:00 p.m. in the cafeteria that evening.

 

BOUNDARY EXCEPTIONS

Students who wish to attend a school in the Weber School District other than their school of residence must complete and return the proper application form to the requested school December 1st through the third Friday in February prior to the year of registration.  All other requests will be reviewed on a case by case basis.  Forms are available from the Main Office, online or at the district office.

 

BULLYING/HARASSMENT

Weber School District prohibits students and employees from bullying other students and/or employees on school property, at school-related events, on school busses or bus stops, or while traveling to or from school, school events, or bus stops, and encourages all targets of bullying and all persons with knowledge of bullying to report the incident(s) immediately.

Weber School District prohibits students and employees from cyber-bullying and hazing another student or employee at any time or in any location where the cyber-bullying or hazing creates a substantial and material disruption at school, or it is reasonably foreseeable that the cyber-bullying or hazing will create a substantial and material disruption at school.

Weber School District prohibits students and employees from retaliating against another student or employee who reports, investigates, or participates as a witness to a bullying, hazing, or cyber-bullying incident. All targets of retaliation are encouraged to report the incident(s) immediately.

Weber School District prohibits false allegations of bullying, cyber-bullying, hazing or retaliation.

 

CELEBRATING EXCELLENCE

Each month teachers nominate students who have demonstrated outstanding achievement in a particular department.  An award will be given and their picture will be displayed during that month.

 

CITIZENSHIP GRADES

Weber School District uses the following categories to assign citizenship grades which are separate from academic grades.  H = Honorable, S = Satisfactory, N = Needs Improvement, U = Unsatisfactory

 

CLASS CHANGES

Our schedule is extremely tight and class changes are usually very difficult to make.  A $10.00 class change fee is assessed unless there is a mistake in the schedule.

  

CLOSED CAMPUS POLICY

In order to ensure student safety, we enforce a closed campus policy.  Students are not allowed to leave the campus unless properly checked out in the main office.  Students leaving campus without an “Attendance Pass” issued from the Attendance Secretary will be considered truant.

 

CONSTITUTION

The Roy Jr. High Constitution is the document by which student government functions.  Copies of the Constitution may be obtained from the school office.

 

CREDIT

Credit will be earned each quarter.  It is very important to understand that each quarter stands alone.  Therefore, every lost credit needs to be made-up.  All ninth grade credit earned is used for high school graduation as well as scholarship applications.  Any ninth grade credit loss should be made up during summer school, in after-school or online classes, or at the future high school.  Graduation may be in jeopardy if this credit is not made up during summer school or after-school classes.

 

CREDIT RECOVERY

In order to help students make up credit in a timely manner, Roy Jr High School has instituted the Credit Recovery Program for 9th Grade students.  If a student fails a class, the teacher will give the student the opportunity to make up the class during the NEXT QUARTER.  The student must take the credit recovery form/receipt to the teacher no later than two (2) weeks after receiving the final grade.  A student must be within 15% of passing a class for credit recovery to be taken advantage of.  If the student performed far below passing standards in the class, the teacher/counselor should direct the student to another option for credit make-up.

  1. The student must pick up the Credit Recovery Form in the Counseling Office
  2. Pay the $35 make-up fee at the bookkeeper’s office
  3. Take the receipt to the school counselor to register.

If the student satisfactorily completes the work the teacher directs him/her to do, in the time allotted, a “P” (Pass) will be issued and credit granted. The original “F” grade remains on the student transcript. Credit recovery will be available through Weber Online to make-up 4th quarter failing grades due to summer vacation. If the make-up work is not done satisfactorily or not completed on time, no credit will be given and the credit recovery fee will be forfeited. Students not eligible for Credit Recovery are welcome to use Edgenuity or Weber Online ($35) for Credit Make-up. 

 

DANCES

A dance is different from the stomps we hold right after school. These are the dance policies:

  • Only current Roy Jr. 7th, 8th, and 9th grade students may attend a dance at Roy Jr. High.
  • The dances will be held from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.  All Students must be picked up by 8:15 p.m.
  • Dress code will be strictly enforced. Spaghetti straps or strapless tops will not be allowed.  No low cut, short dresses or short skirts will be allowed. No bare midriff. If students arrive at the dance inappropriately dressed they will not be allowed to enter the dance.
  • Best dress is expected
  • There will be no moshing or dirty dancing.

 

DESTRUCTION OF SCHOOL OR PRIVATE PROPERTY

Anyone who willfully destroys property through vandalism, arson, larceny, or who tampers with the fire alarms, fire extinguishers, or any electrical system will be referred to the proper law enforcement agency.  Students and parents shall be held responsible for paying for damage to personal or public property.

 

DRESS CODE

Clothing should be clean, modest, in good taste and promote safety, personal hygiene, and a proper academic environment.  The way one dresses affects one’s perceptions and actions.  Students are expected to maintain an appearance that is not distracting, detrimental or disruptive to the educational process.  This dress code will be enforced while students are on campus and at all school activities.  

 

  • Clothing not ordinarily worn in the workplace (i.e. robes, pajamas, pajama pants, house slippers, capes, extremely mutilated clothing etc.) will not be allowed.
  • Shoes must be worn at all times.  More restrictive shoe requirements may be required for safety reasons in some classes.

  • No low-cut fronts, bare backs or bare midriffs.
  • Underwear must not be exposed or visible.

  • Hats, head gear, bandanas or sunglasses will not be allowed.
  • Hair styles or make-up that is so conspicuous, extreme, or odd in appearance that it draws undue attention or tends to disrupt or interfere with the learning environment at school will not be allowed.

A student who chooses to wear inappropriate clothing will be given a choice to: (1) call a parent to bring something appropriate, (2) wear clothing provided by the school.

 

ELECTRONIC DEVICES

The appropriate use of cell phones and other electronic devices will be permitted before and after school hours and in the hallways during student passing periods as well as in the lunch room during the student’s lunch period. Students may also use electronic devices in the classroom at the teacher’s discretion for learning purposes ONLY.  They are not to be seen, heard, or used during class time otherwise.  Misused electronic devices will be confiscated and available for parent or guardian pickup in the office.  

1st Offense – Teacher takes device and returns to student at the end of class period.

2nd Offense – Teacher takes device to Office.  Parent must pick it up.

The office phone is available for student use to contact parents as needed. Although the above electronic devices are allowed at school,        Roy Jr. school personnel will not be held responsible for electronic devices that come up missing.  School administration or designee may search digital media devices based on reasonable suspicion that they contain evidence of a violation of school rules or policy.  Weber School District policies, State and Federal laws regarding illegal content of electronic devices will be enforced.
