Under Miscellaneous Matters, we will address the following:
When a field trip is planned, the teachers or leaders need to examine the safety factor for the students involved. The adult-child ratio will be determined by the type of trip being taken, with the child’s safety always being the main factor. If parents are needed for supervision, then a parent will be asked who does not have a child in that group. Adults need to be attentive to all students, and the parent child relationship being as it is, there is a possibility that the child may be more demanding of their parent’s attentions, rather that wishing to share their parent with their classmates. This would leave the other students without the proper care. Any adult supervisor must always remember that the children they have been assigned to are their first priority and they need to always be watching out for their behavior and safety.
Fire & Fire Drills:
Fire drills will be conducted periodically. Students are to leave the building immediately under a teacher’s direction. If a student sees a fire, it should be reported to a faculty member promptly. DO NOT try to put a fire out yourself. Your personal safety and that of other persons is more important that the building.
NRCS has a school nurse on staff, the school will call in a registered nurse. Each year the Northeast Bradford School nurses come to do regular eye, dental and routine examinations as required by the State.
Lockers are for the convenience of our students but do not become their personal property. School administration has the right to inspect lockers at any time, All items on the outside of the lockers need to conform to Christian standards, and the insides are to be kept clean.
Lost & Found:
Items left unattended at the end of the day may be located in our lost and found. Please ask at the school office for access to the lost and found box. Lost and found items will be disposed of on a bi-weekly basis.
Lunch & Fruit Breaks:
North Rome Christian School does not have a cafeteria. Students are to pack a lunch each day. Please make sure that this is a nutritious meal that is sufficient to make your child comfortable throughout the day. We ask that each family send in a can of food to be kept in the cupboard to be used in the event that a lunch is forgotten. Occasionally, hot lunches are available for students; menus will be sent home monthly. Students in grades K-5 have a time in mid-morning to have fruit break. We ask that this snack always be healthy (i.e. fruit, crackers, granola bars), not sweets or desserts.
Books and instructional supplies are usually supplied by North Rome Christian School. Small designated items (i.e. crayons, pencils, notebook paper) which are specified at the beginning of the school year are the student’s responsibility. In the event that there is excessive abuse or damage to books and/or other school property, that student is responsible for all costs of repair or replacement and may receive further disciplinary actions.
Members of the student council apply to be on the North Rome Christian School student council. The student council will meet periodically to discuss matters of the school. They will work together with teachers and administration to go over concerns and ideas that they have. Student council is made up of members from each grade of the middle and high school.
Student pictures will be photographed in the fall and pictures may be purchased by students. School pictures will be placed in the yearbook. Pictures will also be taken in the Spring as a yearbook fundraiser. The school receives a set amount for each student photographed, whether or not they purchase pictures.
Telephone Calls / Usage:
Students may use the telephone at the discretion of the school personnel in the main office. In general, student phone calls will be limited to emergency needs. Student use of the telephone for school related calls is restricted. Student calls will be limited to legitimate needs to communicate with parents or other responsible parties. It is not to be used for frivolous reasons. Permission must be obtained before using the school phone for personal reasons. The pay phone is the church hallway is not to be used during the school day.
