Student Behavior Handbook

Student Behavior Handbook
Posted on 07/11/2022


Welcome to Sundance Elementary School! The staff at Sundance are proud to partner with you in the education of your child. Educational success for students cannot be complete without an effective partnership with parents. You are the most essential part of your children’s education and it is important we build a relationship in order to best serve your children’s educational and socio-emotional needs. We strongly encourage you to have strong two-way communication with your children’s teachers, participate in our Parent-Teacher Conference Days, PTO meetings, and other school activities.

Within this handbook, you will find two important sources of information: (1) Student-Parent Handbook with policies and procedures established for the safety and high levels of learning of our students and staff and successful operation of the school, and (2) our daily schedule. Please read this information carefully and keep it for future reference.

This handbook is intended to serve as a guide to our families and students so that they may come to know Sundance Elementary’s programs and opportunities as well as to set forth basic expectations and agreements. Please take the time to familiarize yourself with the contents. We are hopeful that the handbook will answer many questions you may have about academics, safety, discipline, school rules, and other topics.* Please understand that no set of rules or guidelines can cover every conceivable situation that might arise at a school. The rules, policies and procedures set forth in this handbook are intended to apply under normal circumstances. However, from time to time, there may be situations that require immediate or nonstandard responses. This handbook does not limit the authority of Sundance Elementary to deviate from the normal rules and procedures set forth in this handbook, and to deal with individual circumstances as they arise in the manner deemed most appropriate by the school taking into consideration the best interests of the students, staff, Sundance Elementary, or overall school community. The policies may also be revised or updated periodically, even during the school year. You will be advised of any changes as they are made either electronically (email) or by mail. Any student or parent with a question about any handbook policy or statement should feel free to speak with the Principal or Assistant Principal.

*Sundance Elementary adheres to all CDC, Department of Health, and Los Lunas Schools current COVID-safety protocols.

Our school vision and mission guide our path to school improvement through goals set in our 90-day plan. Copies of this plan are available for checkout through our office. The staff of Sundance is dedicated to creating a safe, positive, and collaborative learning environment in our school. We work collaboratively within grade level teams and across our school as a Professional Learning Community (PLC) to meet the individual needs of every student. We are nationally recognized as a Model PLC School! This honor is based on our commitment to learning for all students, our collaborative culture, and our focus on results.

We are confident that your school year ahead will be exciting and filled with many new opportunities. We hope it will be your most successful year ever.
