School Policies

Bullying and Hazing Policy
We are committed to providing a safe and civil learning and working environment at White Point Elementary School. We value and promote respect and acceptance. Bullying and harassment are taken seriously and are not allowed or condoned. Bullying is any deliberate and unwanted severe or pervasive physical, verbal, or electronic act that has the intention of, or can be reasonably predicted to have the effect of, one or more of the following:

  1. reasonable fear of harm to person or property,
  2. substantially detrimental effect on physical or mental health,
  3. substantial interference with academic performance, or
  4. substantial interference with the ability to participate in or benefit from school services, activities, or privileges. It infringes on the safety and well-being of students and interferes with their learning.

We can put a stop to bullying and conflicts by working together to encourage all students to follow our guiding principles. Students should always report conflicts, threats, and bullying immediately to a teacher or supervisor for assistance, investigation, and action.

Dress Code
Students should come to school dressed in appropriate attire at all times with attention to cleanliness, safety, and suitability for all activities. Clothing items may not pose a safety risk or distract from our instructional goals. Please make sure that students are groomed appropriately for the classroom (e.g. no low-rise pants, short shorts, spaghetti straps, mohawks) and recess/PE (e.g. no open-toed shoes, hoop or spike earrings). Shorts must be at least mid-thigh. In addition, due to allergies of many individuals, please do not allow children to wear any perfumes, colognes, or scented lotions. Students will be required to call home and change clothing if school wear is not appropriate.

Student Discipline 
Students found to have committed any acts not permitted will be subject to a full investigation, support and guidance, and appropriate disciplinary actions which may include suspension, expulsion, and/or referral to law enforcement.

Cell Phones & Electronics 
Students are not allowed to bring any form of electronics (games, ipods, toys, etc.) to school or after school. The school assumes no responsibility for lost or stolen electronics. Cell phones are allowed but discouraged. If students are caught using their cell phones during the school day, phones will be confiscated and a parent will have to come to the Main Office to retrieve them.


Alcohol, and Weapons Policy - Prohibited Items on Campus
All schools in the Los Angeles Unified School District are drug, alcohol, and tobacco free. Guns, knives, or explosives, fireworks, or other dangerous objects and replicas ARE NOT PERMITTED at school. Possession, sale, or furnishing of firearms, weapons or explosives on LAUSD campuses shall result in immediate involvement of the Los Angeles Police Department and is grounds for suspension or expulsion. Please work with us to ensure all students are safe.

Homework is an important opportunity for students to practice the skills and strategies that they have learned. You can assist your child in acquiring good homework habits by creating a homework routine, providing a quiet place, and establishing time each day to complete homework. Every child is also responsible for reading at home daily. We know from research that children who read daily and young children who are read to, benefit in the areas of social, emotional, cognitive, and language development, are more prepared for school, and exhibit higher levels of academic success. 

Birthday and Other Celebrations
We care about your children, but believe that school is not the setting for celebrating birthday parties. If you would like to acknowledge your children’s birthdays at school, you may bring store-bought goodies to pass out to classmates at the end of the day with prior teacher approval.

Student Health Insurance
The LAUSD’s Children’s Health Access and Medi-Cal Program (CHAMP) can assist parents with free or low-cost health insurance programs. You can call the CHAMP Helpline at 1-866-742-2273 or visit the CHAMP website (on left) for more information.
