Dress Code

1. Shoes must be worn at all times. Sandals must have closed toes and heel straps. Thongs or other backless shoes or sandals are not acceptable. Shoes with wheels or made for stunts are not permitted. No High Heels

2. Make-up is inappropriate in the elementary school. Dangling earrings, chains, and keys worn visibly around the neck are unsafe and are not acceptable.

3. Clothing and jewelry shall be free of writing, pictures or other insignia which are crude, vulgar, profane and/or sexually suggestive or which advertise or advocate racial, ethnic or religious prejudice or the use of drugs, tobacco or alcohol.

4. Hats, caps, visors and other head coverings shall not be worn indoors. They may be worn only for the intended purpose of sun-protection. They are not acceptable worn backwards, to the side, or if they are not an effective sun damage deterrent.

5. Clothes shall be sufficient to conceal undergarments at all times. See-through or fishnet fabrics, halter tops, off-the-shoulder or low cut tops, spaghetti strap tops, bare midriffs and skirts or shorts shorter than mid-thigh are not acceptable.

6. Articles of clothing and accessories, including hats, belts, books, binders, lunch bags, etc. adorned with graffiti or alleging gang affiliations are not acceptable.

7. Hair color (blue, red) and styles that call excessive attention to the individual are inappropriate for elementary school children, and therefore not allowed at Muraoka Elementary.

8. Cell Phones: CVESD BP5131 Students/Conduct - Prohibited student conduct includes, but is not limited to: (#6) Except with prior consent for health reasons, possession or use of electronic signaling devices (Education Code 48901.5) Electronic signaling devices may include, but not be limited to, pagers, beepers, and cellular/digital telephones, iPods, cameras. If cell phones are brought to school, they must remain turned off and kept in back packs during the instructional day and including recess time. Students caught using cell phones or any other electronic devices will have the device/s taken by either the teacher or administrators. Devices will only be returned to the parent.

Furthermore, our school does not allow trading cards, electronics or personal toys (PSP's, balls) brought from home. Valuable items should stay home since the school is not responsible if they get lost, stolen or broken. The school staff reserves the right to make judgments on any article of clothing, mode of dress, or hair style which poses the potential for the disruption of learning and/or compromises a safe and orderly learning environment.

This policy, adopted by the Chula Vista Elementary School District Board of Education on March 7, 1995, describes the dress code expected at Muraoka Elementary School.

Emergency Release Plan

School safety is our number one priority. In case of a school emergency or natural disaster, such as an earthquake, you need to be aware of our school's plan for releasing your child. Instructions for reunification with your child will be communicated to you by the school or District. Please do not take it upon yourself to come to the school based upon media reports, which may be erroneous.

Our concern is for the safe and orderly dismissal of our students. If as many as 400 to 500 parents arrive at our school at approximately the same time to pick up students, your cooperation and patience are essential to our plan.

Parking will be very limited, so be prepared to park away from the school and under the direction of first responders. DO NOT DOUBLE PARK as it may interfere with getting emergency vehicles into our school site.

For the safety of your child, before allowing you to take him/her home, we must document to whom each child is released. When you arrive at school, you will be directed to our "Request Gate/Check in area." A runner will be sent to the student supervision area, and escort your child to the "Release Gate," where you can reunite with your child. In extreme circumstances, a student reunification area may be set up off-campus, and generally in collaboration with emergency responders.

You will be required to sign for the release of your child. This is extremely important as it is our only means of ensuring that all students are accounted for at all times. Be prepared to present a picture identification card if requested. Please do not just take your child from the center without signing for their release. We recognize that you may be worried and want to be reunited with your child as quickly as possible. However, this system has been established to ensure your child's safety.

It is imperative that you keep all information on your child's Emergency Card up-to-date. Your child will only be released to those listed on the card. These procedures should be shared with everyone you list on the Emergency Card so they are familiar with our procedures.

Thank you for your cooperation.
