Bicycles, Skateboards and Scooters

Bicycles and Scooters

Students are to walk bikes/scooters while on school grounds.  Students are to park, lock bikes/scooters and leave the area immediately.  Bike racks are off limits during recess time.

Skateboards and Roller Skates/Blades

These items are not to be brought to school or used on the school grounds before or after school.

Consequences and Positive Incentives

Students who do not follow school rules will be subject to progressive disciplinary action.    Consequences may include warnings, time out within the classroom, time out in another classroom, loss of recess time, being sent to the office, and calls home. More serious behavior may result in a PASS (on-site) or home suspension for one or more days. A list of behaviors that may result in suspension based upon Ed Code is included in your information folder. Our goal is not to punish students, but teach them expected behaviors that are safe, respectful and responsible.  Reinforcing expected behaviors with positive incentives is the most effective way to encourage students to follow school rules and develop intrinsic motivation to do well behaviorally and academically.  Positive behaviors are reinforced in the classroom, playground, cafeteria and throughout the school.

Monthly Pizza with the Principal

Each month, DPM will focus on modeling/teaching one of the character traits identified by the District’s Strategic Plan (Strategy 6) which aligns with DPM’s Strategic Plan (Tactic 2).  Students who demonstrate the identified character trait will be eligible to participate in a monthly positive citizen lunch with a friend and the principal.  Pizza luncheons will take place the first Friday of every month.
