Code of Conduct

Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! It is our privilege to partner with you throughout your student’s educational journey. We know families are interested in knowing what school will look like for their student and what rights and responsibilities they have. You are invited to review the Jeffco Public Schools Student Family Handbook with your student and refer to as needed. This handbook details Jeffco’s policies, procedures, and student expectations. We look forward to  another year of exploring and learning in Jeffco.


Special Notice - COVID-19

Please take particular note that in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Jeffco Public Schools developed specific health and hygiene protocols to enable us to maximize in-person learning while ensuring the

safety of our students, staff, and community. If a student attends in-person learning, the failure of a student to comply with these expectations and the willful defiance to follow direction from school staff will be considered grounds for student discipline up to and including expulsion. Some specifics may change based on the state of the Virus and guidance from health organizations. For more information please see the Student Health Section on Page 5


South Lakewood Elementary

Our Code of Conduct presentations at South Lakewood Elementary contain important items from our Jeffco Public Schools Student Family Handbook that we feel are critical for our elementary students to learn and be aware of during the school day.  Student safety is our number one priority at South Lakewood Elementary.  As a school, we hold presentations for all classrooms in all grades at the beginning of the school year and again in January, when students return from winter break.  We share our Code of Conduct presentations with new students during the school year. We also hold presentations and conversations about the Code of Conduct as needed during the school year with students and classes to discuss any issues that arise that might need to be addressed.
