Student Dress Code

Farnsley Middle School has adopted a dress-for-success policy to develop a positive self-image and school climate for all students. Click here for PDF.


Attendance

At Farnsley, we take attendance and timeliness very seriously! Regular school attendance and punctuality are essential to your child’s progress, and we feel that it is difficult for our students to achieve both academically and personally, if they are not present for the entire school day.

If a student is absent from school, he/she should return with a note from a parent or doctor. Excused absences are provided for medical, court, or family emergencies.


Safety Procedures

We believe that in order for a student to learn properly he or she must

  1. feel safe and secure,
  2. receive breakfast and/or lunch in order not to be hungry, and
  3. then the students can concentrate on learning for academic progress.

We ask all parents and other visitors to cordially abide with our safety procedures. They are for the safety of (y)our children and for (y)our peace of mind. Thank you.
