Student Code of Conduct All Gammon students are expected to behave in a courteous and considerate manner with care for the safety and welfare of self and others .
The Seven Habits:
Habit 1: Be Proactive • You're in Charge
Habit 2: Begin With the End in Mind • Have a Plan
Habit 3: Put First Things First • Work First, Then Play
Habit 4: Think Win-Win • Everyone Can Win
Habit 5: Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood • Listen Before You Talk
Habit 6: Synergize • Together Is Better
Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw • Balance Feels Best
We look forward to incorporating these habits into our instruction to build our students into LEADERS!
Over the first two months of the school year, every school in our district will begin using a new visitor management system called Hall Pass. This system was piloted in our district last spring, and parent and staff feedback was overwhelmingly supportive.
Hall Pass will quickly scan a visitor’s driver’s license or government-issued ID and perform an instant screening for sex offenders. Visitors will receive a custom-printed photo ID badge to wear while they are in school. Hall Pass will also help us better track and recognize the many hours that our volunteers contribute to supporting our students each day.
Our system will be located in the office. Once implemented, visitors who come to our school and who have the opportunity to interact with students will be required to sign in using this new system each time they visit the school during bell hours (8:50 – 4:20). Frequent school visitors may also receive a key tag with a unique number that allows for quick check-in on future visits, and the tags will work at every district school.
Our system will go live Monday, Septermber 29, 2014. To learn more about the schedule, as well as how the system works, visit visitormanagement.usd259.org. As we strive to create an even more secure learning environment for our students, it is our hope that parents and other visitors will find this a welcome enhancement.
- Always walk on the sidewalk rather than walking through the parking lot to reach cars parked in the lot or on the street.
- The lane located in the staff parking lot along the front entrance is designated as the bus lane. No cars are to park in this lane.
- Please do not wave children to cross in front of, or between cars as this is very dangerous.
- Please follow the enter & exit signs for the parking lot.
- Use the patrol to cross the street.
If you have any questions, please call the office at 973-4900.
