Disciplinary Practices include positive re-direction, reasoning, and conflict resolution. The goal of discipline is to guide the behavior of children in such a manner that they will internalize our outward expectations and develop the inner controls they need to function as whole and happy individuals. Physical or emotional punishment of any kind is unacceptable. See APPENDIX A for additional information. Please remember if you are called to pick up your child, we require the parent or emergency person to pick your child within one hour. If someone has not arrived within the hour, children will be excluded for 2 operational days.
