Cell Phones

Children are not to bring toys or other items of any value to school.  This encourages disruptions in the classroom, fights and theft of items.  Atrisco is not responsible for any items that are lost, stolen or damaged. Items will be taken away, turned over to administration and only returned to parents.

Dress Code

Students are required to wear uniforms. Atrisco Elementary Uniform Policy is in line with Ernie Pyle Middle School’s policy.  The uniform dress policy for Atrisco Elementary School will apply to all students and all students will be required to be in uniform everyday.  Students and their parents/guardians have the responsibility to be aware of the school specific uniform dress policy and to conform to those requirements. Atrisco Elementary follows the dress code as outlined in the APS Student Behavior Handbook.

CONSEQUENCES:  Students who violate the dress code in any way will have their parents called and asked to bring the proper clothing to school for their students.  Repeated incidents of dress code violations will result in a discipline referral.

Refer to the handbook for the complete dress code.
