All medication brought to school by a student must be prescribed medication and in a prescription labeled bottle. Medication must be accompanied with a note from the parents and doctor outlining medication instructions. All medication will be kept locked in the clinic. It is the responsibility of the students to report to the clinic to take his/her medication. A registered nurse is on campus to administer medication. If you have any questions please contact Nurse Mikesell.
Armstrong follows the district dress code. Students should not wear flip-flops. Shorts, skirts, and skorts should be fingertip length. Shirts should have straps of at least 3-fingers width. Students also need to wear sneakers on the days they attend PE. Please put your child's name on everything, coats, sweaters, backpacks and lunchboxes.
All visitors (even the familiar faces) must sign in at the office. A visitor's sticker will be printed and must be worn while inside the building. Staff have been instructed to question all visitors not identified with the authorization sticker. In addition, all visitors should sign out in the front office before leaving.
Fire: In the event of a fire, students have planned out routes for leaving the building and getting away from the danger. Students and staff practice using monthly fire drills.
Tornado: If there is a tornado warning issued for our area, then students go into the hallway to duck and cover away from windows. Students practice this during drills held periodically throughout the year.
Lockdown: In the event of a serious incident in the school or in the neighborhood of the school, students and staff would go into lockdown. This means that everyone remains where they are or go to a safer area depending on the situation. Students have practiced this during drills held throughout the year. If the building were to be evacuated following a "real" lockdown or in the event of an emergency, parents would be directed by district personnel where to pick up their children which could be at an offsite location. To find out more about Armstrong's Safety Plan please contact the school Administration team at 972-414-7480.
It is vital to keep information current. If any information changes during the year, please make changes on your Skyward account or report those changes to Shanda Jarjoura. We must be able to contact you if your child has an emergency.
