Behavior Rules

Clark Rules All You Really Need to Remember Is:

  • Respect all others and yourself
  • Treat others as you would like to be treated
  • Be appropriate and responsible for your actions
  • We are here to learn - be in class on time with the materials that you need

Building Hours Students are not to be in the hallways or at lockers until 8 a.m. If you arrive early, remain in the Multi-Purpose Room until 8:00 AM. Students must exit the building by 3:00 p.m. unless involved in a supervised activity. Any student in the building after 3:00 will be required to have written permission from the administration or teacher unless participating in a supervised activity. 

Backpacks, Book bags, Jackets, and Hats For safety reasons, these items are to be placed in your locker as soon as you enter the building and remain there until you leave the building. Hats must be removed upon entering the building. Students may not carry backpacks, bags, purses, fanny packs, etc. during the day without written permission from the administration. Jackets and coats may not be worn during the day.

Balloons, Flowers & other deliveries No balloons are allowed in the building at any time as they can set off the fire alarm. Please avoid deliveries of flowers and similar items. It is difficult for us to get items to students and students have no place to store items and most items are not allowed on the bus.

Betting or Gambling Many times a bet is something that could injure or harm yourself or another student. Students are not allowed to bet students for money or on a dare in any situation in school. Gambling of any type, cards, dice, quarters, etc. is not allowed on school grounds.

Computers Computer use is a privilege, particularly given the limited resources that are available. Students must follow all Anchorage School District and Clark policies or lose computer privileges. Regardless of the computer used, it must be used ethically and legally and only for school approved and school appropriate projects. This is particularly true of using the Internet. Students must have on file and follow the Internet User Agreement prior to using any computer. Only Gaggle (at present) may be used for sending or receiving any form of electronic communication (e-mail, chat rooms, messaging services, etc.) at Clark - NO other similar services are to be used at school. Any student is welcome to such a Gaggle account by seeing the computer instructor. Students are responsible for what is in their files and their passwords, just like a hall locker. Students may only be in areas they appropriately have access to - NOT others files, folders, or servers. Failure to do this is a serious offense. Take care of this unique privilege!

Excessive Display of Affection is considered anything beyond simple hand holding. It is embarrassing for others and can be disruptive to the learning environment.

Food/Beverages in Halls & Classrooms is Not Allowed. Food is to be consumed in the MPR only. Students drinking or eating in the hallways will be asked to dispose of the food or drink immediately and may be subject to disciplinary action. The only exception to this will be water in clear water bottles.

Gum is not allowed at Clark at any time.

Hall Passes Students must have a pass signed by a teacher to be in the halls during class time. Student must remain in the multi-purpose room (MPR) during lunch and may not leave without a pass from the teacher and signing out with security.

Passes You need an appropriate teacher signed pass whenever you are out of class or requesting to leave the lunchroom for any reason, except for an emergency. Being in the hall without a pass may result in receiving a disciplinary consequences. Ask your teacher for a pass before you leave class. Insist on having a pass to avoid disciplinary action.

Physical Education requires that students change into a plain white or Clark P.E. shirt with their name on the front left and gym pants or sweatpants each day. Non-mark gym shoes that are fully tied are required at all times. Gum is never allowed. These are safety issues. See attendance regarding excuses.

Selling Items at school is prohibited. Even fundraising for Clark groups requires special administrative approval.

School Property Students are expected to treat facilities, equipment, and materials provided responsibility. Deliberate or accidental damage caused by a student may result in a fine for restitution and, if warranted, disciplinary action for vandalism.

Substitute Teachers are an extension of the Clark staff and as such are to be treated with respect at all times. Students who are disrespectful and/or disruptive with a substitute teacher are subject to disciplinary action.

Throwing Objects Throwing any object at any time for any reason, particularly in classrooms, over the balcony or in the cafeteria, may result in suspension. This includes any time you are under school district jurisdiction such as bus stop.

Visitors/Trespassing All visitors must report to the office when entering Clark. Students from other schools may not visit during the school day. Similarly you may not visit other schools or your old school or be on other schools property. Students failing to do so will be subject to District trespass policies.
