  • Treat others and their property with kindness and respect.
  • Keep hands, feet, and other objects to yourself.
  • Always walk, especially in the classroom, library, computer lab, and hallway.
  • Raise your hand and wait to be recognized.
  • There is no talking while traveling inside the school building and soft voices should be used during lunch.
  • Be quiet during fire drills, tests, silent reading, when in line, or when someone is speaking.
  • Cell phone use during school hours is not permitted. Cell phones should remain turned off and in student backpacks during school hours.

Tiffany Elementary School believes that appropriate dress and grooming contribute to a safe and productive learning environment.  Students are expected to give proper attention to personal cleanliness and to wear clothing that is suitable for the school activities in which they participate.  The following is the dress code for Tiffany School:
