DRESS CODE POLICY for Elementary 2016-2017
With rainy weather a daily event, our new process for mornings when it is raining or below 35 degrees will be for students to eat breakfast and then report to their first period class.
Any students caught roaming around will face disciplinary action. This is an effort to keep students in smaller groups and to keep Jr. High and High School separated, instead of just sitting in the auditorium with many opportunities for horseplay.
Attention: ActiveParent is temporarily not working. We will let you know as soon as it is ready to use. We are sorry for the inconvenience.
Reminder to all parents– ActiveParent is an online tool that Richton School District provides for you to check your child’s grades, absences, and any discipline referrals. If you do not have already an account, please contact either the elementary or high school office for information.
The Mississippi House of Representatives and the Senate voted today to repeal a provision in Senate Bill 2571 that would have changed the compulsory school age date from Sept. 1 to Aug. 1. Based on today’s vote, the Sept. 1 date will remain in effect. The bill is on its way to the governor’s office. The legislation will be effective from and after passage.
We are asking for all parents to please visit the MDE website (click here) for ideas on what to expect from MDE learning standards. It provides helpful information about Mississippi College and Career Ready Standards (MCCRS) and gives grade by grade information for English/Language Arts as well as Math. There are also videos to watch on the MDE college and career standards web page.

EVERY VISITOR TO OUR CAMPUS MUST SIGN IN AT THE PRINCIPAL’S OFFICE UPON ENTERING THE SCHOOL CAMPUS TO OBTAIN A VISITOR’S PASS.
Visitors must be approved by administration before being given a visitor pass to wear while on campus. Anyone who fails to comply with this policy is subject to being reported to local law enforcement authorities. NO teacher will allow you to enter his/her classroom to speak to a student without a pass. Students from other schools will not be allowed to visit our classes. When parents/guardians go to school to check out their children, they will have to wait in the office; they will not be permitted to visit the child’s classroom or hallway. No visitors will be permitted in school hallways unless teachers on that hallway are notified in advance by the school secretary.
PLEASE FOLLOW THIS POLICY. We must make every effort to enforce this rule. It is the responsibility of this school to protect you children, so we must have your full cooperation in this matter.
