FUN FRIDAY POLICY
We enjoy celebrating each and every week that we spend together at McHarg. While we have an Effective School-wide Discipline program supported by Kid Cash and the purchase of privileges, we also provide Fun Friday events to celebrate each week’s accomplishments. Students who have followed the Terrific Kid expectations all week and have shown a commitment to being at school on time, every day, and staying until 3:10, will be allowed to participate in the announced Fun Friday activity.
Terrific Kid expectations in reference to Fun Friday are as follows:
I am Safe
I keep myself to myself.
I stay seated.
I am Respectful
I follow directions.
I use kind words.
I clean up after myself.
I am Peaceful
I walk and sit quietly.
I use a calm voice.
Attendance expectations in reference to Fun Friday are as follows:
We understand that each semester may bring unforeseen tardies and early check outs. Therefore, we are allowing some flexibility for unexcused tardies each semester before your child will lose his or her opportunity to participate in the Fun Friday activity. Keep in mind, excused tardies and check outs are those verified by a doctor’s note and/or recommended by the school nurse.
Please be aware of the following procedures:
- Each semester, a student will be allowed a total of 3 unexcused tardies and check outs (labeled unexcused due to no doctor’s note) before action will be taken.
- Upon the 4th unexcused tardy or early check out for the semester, the student will lose his/her Fun Friday activity (popcorn, extra recess, board games, etc.) designated by the principal. Parents will be notified 24 hours in advance of this consequence.
- Upon the 8th unexcused tardy or early check out for the semester, the student will lose another Fun Friday activity, designated by the principal. The parents/guardians will meet with school administration to discuss and sign an attendance improvement plan. For every unexcused tardy/check out after the 8th, a Fun Friday activity will be taken. A referral to court services may be made as well.
