School Rules

All the students at Grand View have the right to a positive, warm, and nurturing environment where they can learn and play safely and comfortably. The goal of the Grand View discipline program is to teach every student self-respect, self-discipline, respect for others, and positive social interaction. In order to establish an effective discipline program, it is essential that students understand what behavior is expected of them.

 

We ask that all students follow the rules below before, during and after school anywhere on the school grounds as well as to and from school. All school personnel will make every effort to focus on “catching students being good” and will reward them for their good behavior with Great Gator Awards and lots of praise!
