Health Services Lockers-Secondary Lost & Found Lunch & Fruit Break
School Supplies Student Council Student Pictures Phone Calls / Usage
Birthdays:
Students may bring in a birthday treat to be passed out to their class during lunch time. Students frequently bring in extra treats to pass out to staff members. Birthday invitations passed out in school must be for an entire class If the entire class is not invited, parents must send invitations to students via mail.


Chapel:
Each week the school has a chapel service. Pastors, patrons, staff and others are invited as speakers. Student participation includes singing, flag salutes, prayer and testimonies.


Cell Phone Usage:
Parents may provide students with cell phone to use in case of an emergency. However, they are not to be used at school without teacher or administration permission.


Communication Envelopes:
North Rome Christian School uses special envelopes to send home important papers to parents. These need to be signed by the parent and returned to the school promptly.


Drivers Education Policy:
The drivers education program will consist of all tenth grade students taking the in class course as part of their regular curriculum. The behind the wheel instruction is available at North Rome Christian School with a volunteer instructor. Arrangements need to be made through the office for this service.
Emergency Delays & Changes:
North Rome Christian School normally follows the same delays and closings (due to inclement weather) as Athens, Northeast, Sayre, Towanda, and Wyalusing school districts. Radio and television announcements will be given as to our schedules. Tune in to WPEL, WHGL, and WNEP. The quickest and most accurate resource is sycamore education.
Field Trips:
Individual teachers will be planning field trips throughout the course of the school year. An authorization form should be signed and returned to the school granting permission for such trips. The parent will cover the cost. Parents may also be asked about their availability to share in the driving or in accompanying the class.

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.

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.

School Supplies:
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.
