Dress Code

dont_forget.pngParents are advised to remind their student that some clothing is not appropriate school attire. All students are expected to observe the basic standards of cleanliness, good grooming, and modesty. These standards include, but are not limited to, items such as pajama bottoms/lounge-type wear, as well as, clothing that is “see-through”, cut low, or exposes one’s midriff.  Students may not wear hats, hoods, visors, bandanas, or slippers in school. Additionally, if a shirt with spaghetti straps is worn, then a T-shirt or blouse must be worn under or over that shirt. The items described here are not appropriate for junior high. Please monitor your child’s choice of clothing. Please refer to your Parent/Student Handbook for a complete description of our dress code.

Cell phone use is not permitted in the school. Cell phones are allowed in school only if the cell phone is kept in the locker and turned OFF. Cell phone use is permitted before or after school hours outside of the school. If a phone is found with the student during the school day or if the student operates the phone during the school day the phone will be confiscated and placed in the school safe until the end of the school day. If the student repeatedly abuses this regulation, a parent will need to come to school to retrieve the phone.

Important Lunch Account Deposit Deadline

Please note that money posted to your child’s lunch account via Mealtime Online has a deadline in order for that deposit to be available for your child’s lunch period. Please also note that if your child brings his/her lunch deposit to school in an envelope, it must be submitted to the school office BEFORE 9:00 A.M. – preferably upon entry to school before the start of the first period class. The Ceres lunch personnel need sufficient time to post money to individual accounts, therefore, please understand that lunch money brought to the school office after the lunch personnel pick up the day’s deposits money submitted after 9:00 AM cannot be posted in time for that day’s lunch period.

Is Your Information Correct?

For the safety of your child it is important that the school have current home, work and/or cell phone numbers for parents/guardians as well as for any adults allowed by the parent to pick their child up from school.  

If you haven’t already done so, please make sure the school office has current information and please try to remember to keep the office informed if or when phone numbers or other contacts change. Additionally, for the safety of your child, please make sure he/she memorizes his/her home phone number and address, as well as work and cell phone numbers where parents can be reached.

Money Reminder

Parents with access to computers are encouraged to utilize both the PaySchools and Mealtime Online payment format. However, if you choose to submit payments or make lunch account deposits via your child please remember that all money submitted to school for your child’s lunch account or any other event or activity must be in an envelope clearly marked with the student’s first and last name and the purpose for the money (i.e. lunch money, school fees, etc.). If paying by check, please print your child’s first and last name in the memo portion of the check. Again, any cash submitted to school for any purpose must be in the EXACT AMOUNT – the school office cannot make change.
