Code of Conduct Introduction

The Code of Conduct applies to all school activities both during the school day and after regular school hours (including, but not limited to, after school activities programs, athletic events, school trips, PTO dances, etc.).
Our goal is to maintain a positive, purposeful learning environment where students are accountable for their behavior and learn from their mistakes.  You are expected to make good choices regarding your behavior; however, all of us make mistakes from time to time.  When you do make a mistake, your teacher(s), your counselor, or an administrator will work with you in order to help you recognize the problem, improve the situation, and avoid repeating it.  This includes giving consequences that are appropriate to the circumstances in order to help you improve and to ensure everyone’s right to learn in a safe and orderly environment.
The following exemplifies typical range of consequences for student misbehaviors.  It is important to note that these are guidelines. Teachers and administrators will use their professional judgment to determine what the appropriate consequence will be for a violation of the Code of Conduct.  Factors that are considered when determining appropriate consequences include:
•    the student’s discipline record
•    the student’s attitude regarding the violation
•    the student’s willingness to address the issue and comply with consequences
•    the impact on the classroom and school environment.

In some cases, students may be denied privileges such as participation in sports, clubs, or other co-curricular activities, be removed from the bus (see bus conduct policy below for more specifics), or be restricted from special school activities and events, such as assemblies, field trips, dances, etc. 

It is important that all students follow our school’s code of conduct to ensure our core values are upheld and be active citizens in our learning community.  All students are expected to let an adult know when something happens that goes against our core values. If something “doesn’t feel right”, then it probably isn’t right – report it to a teacher or other trusted adult. Together we will make OMS a wonderful place to learn!
