Student Handbook

The International School #45 faculty and staff are committed to ensuring high academic achievement for all students.  This page outlines some of the expectations we have for our students and parents to ensure we are successful in meeting this goal.  Please refer to the Student Code of Conduct for a more detailed explanation. 

Parents are a child's first teacher.  Establishing behavioral guidelines at home helps students succeed in school.  Below is a list of suggestions to help.
  • Teach your child respect for law, authority, the rights of others, and for public and private property.
  • Ensure prompt and regular school attendance and comply with attendance rules and procedures.
  • Collaborate with the school in carrying out recommendations made in the best interest of your child.
  • Make sure your child is prepared for school everyday.
  • Provide a quiet place to study and do homework.
General Behavior and Preparation for School:
  • Students will enter and exit the building in an orderly way.
  • Students must be in their seats and ready to learn by 8:15am.  Students arriving after that must go to the office for a late pass.
  • Students are expected to be prepared for class with paper, pencils, pens, homework, etc.
  • Students may not bring MP3 player, IPods, PSPs, electronic games, or weapons to school.
  • Cell phones must be stored in the off position in student lockers during school hours.

  • Students will not smoke in school or on the way to or from school.  Students are not permitted to carry cigarettes, lighters, or matches in school or to and from school.
Bus Behavior:
Transporting our students to and from school in a safe and supervised manner is very important.  Bus drivers and bus aides must insist on good behavior from student riders.  The faculty and staff at The International School #45 expect our students to obey the following rules:
  • Students will wait in an orderly manner at bus stops.
  • Students will board the bus in a single line.
  • Students will remain seated while the bus is in motion.
  • Students will not eat, drink, or litter while on the bus.
  • Students will talk quietly and refrain from making loud noises on the bus.
  • Students will not mark or damage the bus in any way.
  • Students will not extend any part of the body out of the bus windows.
  • An adult must be at the bus stop to meet students from grades PreK and K.
Please refer to the Student Code of Conduct for more detailed rules.  Bus privileges may be taken away from students who break these rules.
