General School Code of Conduct

Foothills Elementary has adopted a simple set of school rules that will clarify and guide behavioral expectations throughout the school.

Rules: Be Respectful, Be Responsible, Be Safe

These concepts “The Big 3” will guide behavior expectations in all areas of the school. A matrix details what each of these rules looks like in different areas of the school. This matrix will be taught explicitly to all students. If ever a student is unclear what the expectations are in a particular area – they simply need to ask themselves: Is it Respectful? Is it Responsible? Is it a safe thing to do?
