Policies & procedures

Grooming/dress code:

Stephens Elementary does not have uniforms, however, we do follow the district guidelines. District Dress Code

Attendance policy:

When your child misses school for any reason they must bring a note from parent/legal guardian stating the reason why they were absent. Please make sure to add the date your child was absent along with their student ID number. If your child is absent for more than three days in a row they will need to have a doctor's note.

Please remember that no student can miss more than 18 days in one school year.

Birthdays and celebrations

Per state regulations, cupcakes or any food given to all students will not be allowing during lunch times. 

Please help our campus preserve the instructional time each day.  We need to remind everyone that birthday celebrations only occur at the end of the day.  You may bring cupcakes only.  Please do not bring pizza, balloons, or other snacks. The office staff will deliver the cupcakes to the classroom around 3:05. We do not allow parents to enter classrooms during this vital time of our instructional day.  Please keep in mind that all food items must be store bought and cannot be homemade.  Please make sure you notify the teacher that you would like to bring birthday cupcakes.   

Lunch visitors

We know how special it is for a student to have a special adult come up and eat lunch with them.  However, we are unable to fulfill this request at this time due to Covid restrictions.  Please call our front office if you need additional information regarding lunch with students.
