School Policies 
Early Pick-Up Rules
The end of the school day can become challenging with dismissal. If you need to pick-up your
child before the school day is done at 3:57pm, please make sure to sign them out before
3:15pm. This will allow you to park and have access to get out of the parking lot without getting
in our car line. Thank you to ensure a safe and smooth dismissal.

No Outside Food or Drink Allowed
For the safety of our students, outside food is not permitted on campus within one hour of
meal times served at school. If for some reason it is permitted, it must be store bought with a
label of ingredients that were used during the preparation of the food to be filed on campus.
Should you ever have a question, please contact the front desk for additional questions.

2nd – Parent Contact

4th - Saturday School (8:00am – 10:00am every other Saturday)

Cell Phone/Device and Accessory Policy
Orange County Public School District policy allows the possession of a cell phone on school property, at after school activities, and at school-related functions, provided that during school hours and on a school bus, the cell phone remains off and is concealed. Devices must be concealed in a purse, book bag, etc., and may not be kept on the student’s person (in a pocket of pants, coats, etc.). For the purposes of this policy, “school hours” begin at the time the student crosses the threshold into the classroom, first period, until the time the student crosses the threshold to leave the classroom, seventh period. During this time cell phones, earbuds, etc. must be turned off, may not be stored on the student’s person, and may not be used. These devices and accessories have become a significant distraction to the classroom learning environment, disruptive to the school climate, and compromise student and staff safety and privacy, as well as the academic integrity and authenticity of many classroom assessments, on a daily basis. In an instance in which emergency communication with your child is necessary, a SunRidge Middle School staff member will immediately assist a parent or student via the use of a school telephone. When a parent needs to speak to a student, in an emergency situation, he/she should call the front office for assistance.

Dress Code
Revisions to the student dress code include:
• A comprehensive requirement that is gender neutral, objective, and detailed.
• Clothing must cover the body from one armpit across to the other armpit and down to approximately mid-thigh.
• Tops must have straps.
• Undergarments must not be viewable.
• Rips, holes, or tears in clothing must be below the knee.

Delayed Dismissal
The district’s Weather Delayed Dismissal procedures require that the nationally recognized “30-30 Rule” be enacted by schools if thunder is heard within 30 seconds of lightning strike. Students will not be dismissed until 30 minutes has passed from the last sound of thunder. However, parents and guardians will be allowed to sign their child out during these situations at the main school office.

Clinic
The Clinic must dispense all medications taken at school. If it is necessary for a student to take any form of medication at school, the parent/guardian must bring the medication to the school in the original, sealed prescription container. The parent/guardian must also complete an Authorization for Medication form before a student is permitted to take medication at school. This form is required for any student needing medication during school hours or during after-school activities.
Students are not to carry medication, over-the-counter or prescription, at any time during the school day. Please note, dosage-specific, over-the-counter medication will only be administered to your student(s) for one week. If additional medication is needed, a physician's order must be on file with the clinic.
