Positive Behavior Support is a proactive, school-wide plan that invests in all students before problems develop. At Fall River, we believe that children want to "do the right thing". By making our expectations very clear, and acknowledging students who exhibit these positive attributes, we are supporting our students in making positive behavioral and academic choices. For more information please visit http://www.successfulschools.org
We encourage children to come to school dressed appropriately for the weather and the school’s activities. Tennis/athletic shoes are required on PE days. It is recommended that students do not wear plastic flip-flops to school. T-shirts with obscene or racial comments, spaghetti strap tank tops, spandex shorts, short shorts, midriff shirts and swimwear are not allowed. Shorts/skirts are to be longer than your fingertips when arms are hanging straight down to your side. Clothing that bares or exposes traditionally private parts of the body including, but not limited to, the stomach, buttocks, back and breasts may not be worn. No underwear should be showing.
Students will not be permitted to wear styles that are disruptive or detrimental to the educational process. The staff recommends a more conservative style of dress. The principal maintains the right to determine the appropriateness of clothing. Incidents of inappropriate dress will be handled on an individual basis.
Caps/hats will not be worn in the building. All volunteers/visitors must comply with our student dress code.
