Windsor Mission Statement:

At Windsor we value shared leadership, and we are dedicated to building relationships that encourage open-minded and confident learners. We will solve problems, strive for equity, and celebrate growth.

Cell Phone Policy

We understand that there are some students have cell phones in order to communicate with their family after school. However, cell phones can be a large distraction at school. Subsequently, we ask that students and families be mindful of the following guidelines.

· During the day all cell phones need to be turned off and turned into the teacher or the office, not left in pockets, desks, or lockers.

· Any cell phones found or heard during the school day will be confiscated, given to the office, and returned to the student at the end of the day.

· Should a student have multiple occurrences where they do not turn in a phone at the start of the day, the parent/guardian will be contacted. If the student continues to struggle with following the policy, the parent/guardian will be asked to have a meeting with the student and Mr. Nichols/Ms. Lorentzen to problem solve the best way to ensure compliance.

Windsor Student Dress Code

· Tops and bottoms may not be revealing. Revealing clothes include clothing that shows undergarments, stomachs, chests, and private areas.

· Attire that substantially disrupts from the education program is prohibited. (Ex: no headbands that light up/have ears or horns)

· Costumes/Pajamas/Slippers are only to be worn on designated dress up day(s).

· Shoes must be worn at all times.

· Students are permitted to wear headwraps and headbands; however, hats, hoods, bandanas, and sunglasses are not permitted.
