Handbook Essentials

Attendance

PLEASE call the office at 345.3661 before 8:30 am the morning your child will be absent. Attendance is mandatory per New Mexico State Statues and is very important. Students that have more than 10 days excused or unexcused absences may be referred to Children’s Court. School messenger will automatically call parents/guardians each time your child is not in school. If your child is absent from school due to illness, a death in the family, religious commitment, family emergency, diagnostic testing, doctor’s appointment, or other emergency accepted by the district, your child will be allowed to make up work missed. If the school does not hear from the parent/guardian before 10:30 am, the absence will be reported as unexcused. These absences are verified on a daily basis with appropriate action taken by the district. Please refer to the APS Student Behavior Handbook. You are given only 3 days to report an excused absence.


Cell Phone Policy

All devices should be turned off and kept in the child’s backpack. The school is not responsible if the device is lost, stolen, or damaged. In the event of an incident involving a cell phone it will be brought by the student to the office and a parent will have to come to the office to pick it up.


Dress Code

Griegos expects student dress and proper grooming to reflect high standards of personal conduct so that each student's attire promotes a positive, safe, and healthy atmosphere. Proper grooming means only faux-hawks are allowed at school as long as hair is not shaved and spiked from the front to the back of the head. Razor cut designs and mohawks are not acceptable. Coloring of hair and highlights are acceptable.

  • Appropriate children’s wear should not be too tight, suggestive, or revealing.
  • Shirts and tops need to cover the child below the waistline. Crop tops, halters, tube tops, spaghetti straps, racer backs, etc. are not acceptable. Sleeveless shirts are acceptable as long as the armholes are not so pronounced as to expose the chest.
  • Shorts are acceptable, but must be long and loose. Excessively short or tight shorts are not acceptable.
  • Hats are NOT allowed inside buildings, except when there is a specific instructional, safety, religious, or medical reason.

Included in appropriate dress is clothing appropriate for weather. We ask that you label your children’s outer wear to prevent confusion with lost and stolen items. Items left at school at the end of the year will be donated to a charitable organization.
