Fire Drills/Alarms/Extinguishers
 

Fire drills are held at various times throughout the year. Promptness and silence is required. In each classroom and in halls, an emergency evacuation plan showing emergency routes is posted. If an alarm sounds while students are passing in the halls, the students should proceed toward the exit in the section of the hall in which they are in at the moment. Students should remember that perfect order is an essential for complete safety. Unless directed otherwise, students should remain and return to the building with their assigned teacher. Violations of this are subject to disciplinary action.

Fire alarm equipment is governed by State and Federal Laws. Any student tampering with fire alarms / fire extinguishers will be subject to disciplinary action up to and including expulsion, arrest and prosecution.

Administration of Medication
 
A letter or authorization for each prescription must be submitted by the parent and physician and will be placed on file in the office. The letter from the physician must detail the name of the medication, the times for administration, and dosage.

 

If it is necessary for a student to take medication on a regular basis (for example:  allergy, headaches, etc.), permission must be on file from a physician and parent which will permit a student to come to the office and take medication when required. No student will be permitted to take any drug, even over the counter medications except in the presence of the school staff.Medications must be provided in a pharmacy prepared bottle with the student name, dose, and administration directions clearly appearing on the label.  All over-the-counter medications must be in its original container with the child’s name and administration instruction clearly written on the label.

 Medication, properly identified, must be given to the school staff in order to insure correct administration of the medication. Students may not carry medication with them at school unless authorized by the physician and parent and approved by the school.

For further information, please see the Administration of Medicine policy. 

Lockers
 

Lockers are issued to students for their individual use and storage of books and clothing. The lockers are the property of Lifeline, and as such, can be searched. – (See “Locker Search.”)  Students should not have any expectation of privacy for any items in the locker.  Please note that no lockers will be issued without a signed locker agreement form.

Lifeline is not responsible for the loss of any contents of the locker. Any problems with the operation of the assigned locker should be immediately reported to the Main Office so that the problem can be corrected.

The following are guidelines for student use of lockers:

Locker combinations should not be given to student’s friends; lockers are assigned to individual students.

Students will be held responsible for any damage to their assigned locker.

All materials are to be removed from the locker by the student prior to the closing of school in June; materials left in the locker will be discarded when the custodians clean the lockers.

Emergency School Closing
 
In case of emergency (storms, etc.) when school must be closed parents will be notified.  A message will be left on the school main phone number voicemail should the school be closed for an emergency.
School Responsibility for Personal Property
 

The School is not responsible for the loss of any personal items, of either a student or staff member, while the item is inside or on the premises of Lifeline Education Charter School’s (Lifeline) buildings or property. This includes loss that occurs as a result of lockers that are broken into or rooms that are entered illegally. Lifeline does not and cannot carry insurance to cover these losses.

Parents and staff members are advised, therefore, to obtain sufficient insurance to cover such valuable articles as jewelry, watches, etc., through their own homeowner’s insurance. It is possible for parents to obtain riders on these policies at a very minimal cost to cover belongings while they are outside of the household premises.

 Students are strongly discouraged from bringing valuables and large sums of money to school.

Lost and Found
 
Please do not bring valuable items to school or leave valuables of any kind in lockers, etc. Found articles should be brought to the main office where pupils who have lost them may claim them. Personal student items are not covered by school insurance.
