Have a question? We have an answer! We’ve compiled some of our most frequently asked questions and answers on this page. If you don’t see what you need, please refer to our student handbook (you can find it through quick links on our Home page) or give us a call.
What is the dress code for Lawrenceburg High?
We expect our students to dress in a way that shows respect for themselves, for others, and for their school. No style of dress or article of clothing should distract from the learning experience of other students. Specifically, we do not allow:
- Clothing that promotes drugs, alcohol, weapons, gang violence, sexuality, or racial prejudice
- Tank tops or “muscle” shirts
- Clothing that exposes the midriff or cleavage
- Chains, studded collars, or other jewelry that could damage property or potentially injure a student
- Shorts, pants, or skirts that sag below the waistline or expose the underwear
- Head gear of any type inside the building (including hats, scarves, bandanas, and hoodies)
- Visible offensive or excessive tattooing or piercings (with the exception of earrings)
What will happen if my child becomes ill while at school or needs medication?
If a student becomes ill, we will attempt to notify a parent or guardian promptly, and we will care for the student in our nurse’s station until a parent or guardian arrives. Students may not leave school grounds without a parent or another approved adult (as listed on the student’s information form). If the situation is a medical emergency, we will follow standard emergency procedures. In addition, any student requiring medication during school hours must turn that medication over to our nurse and provide a written and dated consent form that details student and medication name, dosage and times for treatment, and any other necessary directions. We require all prescription medications to be in the original container with the pharmacy label attached. Only life-saving medications (such as asthma inhalers and EpiPens) may be self-administered.
Why is my child being tested for drugs?
School policy dictates that every student who participates in our extracurricular and athletics programs, as well as those who drive themselves to and from school, pass a drug exam. This test is for their safety and not based on any other factors. We will send a copy of the test results to you as soon as they are made available.
What is Friday School?
Friday School is designed to serve as an alternative discipline method. It is used prior to suspension and is held after school on Fridays until 4:30 or 5:30 p.m. (depending upon the offense). Teachers can also assign Friday School to students who need to make up work or class time due to an extended absence.
What is your cell phone policy?
We allow students to use their cell phone (and other electronic communication devices) before and after school or during lunch. We prohibit usage at all other times. If a student is caught using his/her phone during unauthorized times, we will confiscate the device and he/she may be assigned to Friday School.
Can I visit the school?
Absolutely! You are welcome to visit our school, contact your child’s teacher, and volunteer as much as you would like. However, we do ask that for the safety of all our students, you always check in at the office before proceeding throughout the building or grounds.
