Student Handbook

  • Raymond Rules of Conduct

    Raymond Raccoons are expected to be:

     Respectful                      Responsible     

    Really Safe                     Ready to Learn

    These expectations are to be followed before, during and after school in all areas of the school such as: Classrooms, Playground, Lunch Tables, Restrooms, Hallways, Library/Media Center, Multi-Purpose Room/Assemblies and Office including Health Office.

    Electronic Devices at School

    Students may not bring toys or electronic devices to school and we strongly recommend no cell phones at the elementary level. If your student must bring a cell phone to school, it must be turned off, powered down, and put away at all times while on campus. The school is not responsible for lost or damaged cell phones. Phones within eyesight of a school official or phones that disrupt learning will be confiscated, and parents will be required to pick up the phone from the principal. Phones left on, will result in an office discipline referral (ODR). If a student needs to use a phone during school hours, they must report to the office and use the office phone.
