    School Policies/Procedures/Rules

    Albert Schweitzer School fosters a safe, positive, and challenging learning environment where students, teachers, and parents collaborate in support of creating an atmosphere that fosters individual abilities. Our goals are to provide:
    • A safe learning environment
    • an integrated, academically challenging program
    • An environment that fosters self-esteem, autonomy, respect, and responsibility through the implementation of strategies that value each student
    • A strong home-school bond in support of our community of learners.
    It is important that school policies, procedures, and rules be shared and understood by students, parents/guardians, and school staff members. Each teacher spends time at the beginning of the year and at the beginning of each trimester teaching and reviewing the School Behavior Policies, Procedures, and School Rules.

    You can print a copy of the entire document here.


    In addition, the San Juan Unified School District sends home a pamphlet, Parent Handbook and Calendar for Parents and Students, each year that contains important district policies.  The document can be found towards the bottom of this page.
     

    Students are responsible to know and follow school and classroom rules:

    • Be Respectful, Be Responsible, Be Safe

    Students must show respect for themselves, other students, adults and school property.
     
    All personal items are to be left at home unless specific permission is given by the teacher to bring them to school. The school is not responsible for lost, stolen, or damaged personal items.

    Students may not be on campus before 8:20am unless they are eating breakfast.

    Students are to address teachers in the school as Mr. Mrs. Ms. or Miss.

    Students may only leave the classroom with teacher permission.

    Students must walk in the halls.

    Skateboards and scooters brought on district school campuses are subject to impound and fine as per Sacramento County Ordinance.

    Bicycles must be walked on school grounds at all times. Bikes will be impounded in the school office until the next day if the rule is violated.

    Students are not allowed in the nature area before school or after school before 4:00pm.

    Students are not permitted to return to the school campus until after 4:00pm.

    Medications of any kind may not be taken unless a medication form has been completed and filed in the office. Medication must be kept in the school office unless arrangements are made for specific reasons.

Parent Handbook

  • The 2019-2020 Family Handbook contains important information for students, parents and guardians. Please take the time to download it and read it thoroughly. It references district policies and regulations, school programs, school safety information, as well as creative ideas on how to strengthen your parental role with your child, and much more. The Family Handbook also includes the school year calendar and a phone directory with school and department phone numbers.

District Policy on Use of Students in Photos and Video

  • Photos and video footage of students add significantly to the communication value of district and school publications, television productions, and web sites. It is the district's desire to share the achievements and recognition earned by students with the broader community. This effort can be aided by the use of photos or video footage showing students involved in the classroom and school-related activities.

    Photos & Video

    Unless notified in writing of an objection by a parent, legal guardian, or student of age 18, photographs and video footage of students and/or names may be posted in district-produced materials including printed publications, television productions, and websites.

    If parents do not wish photographs or videos of their student to be used in these materials, they should complete a Photo/Video Opt-Out form available at school offices or via the link below. Please be aware that opt-out requests are valid for the current school year and must be renewed at the start of the next school year.
     
     
     
     
    If an opt-out form is filed, district and school staff members will ALSO request news media not interview your student or film/photograph your student. While local news media typically honor such requests, the district does not have legal authority to prevent your student from talking with media or restricting who media outlets film or photograph. You are encouraged to have a discussion with your student about your wishes should members of the news media request to interview them. 
     
    If photos or video of students or staff are going to be created, maintained or displayed by a third party where the District or school will not have direct control of the materials, then a written release form is required. Contact the Community Relations Office at (916) 979-8281 to discuss options. 
     

    Photos & Video - Special Education Students and Homeless Students

     
    School and District staff will always seek parent/guardian permission before using a photo which identifies a student receiving special education or homeless services. Permission forms for these situations can also be obtained from school offices or via the link below.
     
     
     
     

    Please contact your school office or the Community Relations Office at (916) 979-8281 if you have any questions about this policy.
