• Classroom Expectations

    Classroom expectations directly align with school expectations.

    ·        Be Responsible

    ·        Be Respectful

    ·        Be Safe


    “No one has the right to interfere with the learning, safety or well-being of another”



    (The HMS School-Wide Prevention Program)

    Our progressive discipline is based on the Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) Response to Intervention – Behavior (RTI-B) program.

    Students are expected to conduct themselves in a proper manner at all times.  Specific guidelines are outlined in the DVUSD Student Rights and Responsibility (SR & R) Handbook.  The school rules apply coming to school, going home from school, and at all school-sponsored events.  General misbehavior is handled by the classroom teacher in the following manner:



    Step 1: Universal Interventions (Warning/Redirection)

    Step 2: 1st Minor Incident Report with Interventions

    Step 3: 2nd Minor Incident Report with Interventions and Parent Email

    Step 4: 3rd Minor Incident Report with Interventions and Parent Phone Call

    Step 5: Major Behavior Referral

    Consequences for inappropriate behavior will be given according to the DVUSD discipline guidelines as outlined in the Student Rights and Responsibility (SR & R) Handbook.

    The following will not be allowed in class unless an arrangement has been made with parents/guardians:

               Fidget Spinners, gum, and outside food/drinks (this includes Starbucks and Polar Pops). 

    As a rule, cell phones will not be allowed in class, however there may be an occasional exception. The steps for a cell phone infraction are aligned with the school-wide interventions. 

    • Teacher will ask for phone to be put in backpack
    • Student will be asked to put phone on teachers desk to be picked up at the end of the hour
    • Student will be sent to the office where phone may be picked up at 3:00 (parents will be emailed/called)
    • If it continues to be a problem, the parent/guardian will be asked to pick up the cell phone.
