  • Treat one another and those in authority with dignity and respect all the times, even with there is a disagreement
  • Refrain from bringing anything to school that may compromise the safety of myself or others
  • Demonstrate responsibility for actions or behavior on or off school property or outside of the school day that would have an impact on the school climate
  • Follow the established rules and expectations and take responsibility for my own actions
