El Roble Standards

In addition to the standards outlined in the State Education Code, the following standards of behavior are expected of all El Roble students:


Acceptable Behavior of Students:

Students are expected to be respectful to all school employees at all times, on and off campus. Defiance of authority will not be tolerated.

Arrival Time:

7:30 a.m. is the earliest students may arrive at campus unless under the supervision of a staff member.


Bicycles are allowed on the perimeter of the school grounds and in the bike racks only. Skateboards, scooters, and skates are not allowed on campus at any time.


Bus transportation is a privilege, not a right. Proper conduct on buses at all times is essential for the safety of all passengers. Students who do not respect the property and rights of others will be denied the privilege of riding the bus.

Closed Campus and Out-of-Bounds Areas:

Students are expected to remain on the school grounds from their time of arrival at school until they are dismissed at the end of their day. All visitors to the school must obtain office approval to be on campus. Larkin Park is off-limits to students before, after and during school hours.

Departure Time:

2:40 p.m. is the latest students may be on campus unless under the supervision of a staff member. Parents are asked to request a note from students, signed by a staff member, if arrival home is delayed.

Electronic Divices:

Radios, CD players, I-pods, MP3 players, walkmans, stereos, tape recorders, and electronic games are not to be brought to school at any time. Devices will be sent to the office and will not be returned to the student. Parents or guardians must pick up the device.

Gum and Candy:

Gum and candy are not permitted at any time on school grounds. Students found chewing gum will be assigned to campus beautification detail (litter pick-up or gum scraping duty). Food is only to be eaten in the lunch area.

Inappropriate Items Brought to School:

Due to the potential eye injury, laser pointers are NOT to be brought to school (mandated by Claremont Unified School District).

Inappropriate items taken away from students will be held for two (2) weeks in the office, and are to be picked up by parents. After that time, items will be discarded.


Littering is considered disrespectful to school property and other students/staff. Students are expected to use the trashcans. Trash pick up will be assigned to any one seen littering.


School property may be searched from time to time for disciplinary, health or safety reasons.


The sale of any item by a student on campus is prohibited.

Social Relationships:

Students are responsible for showing maturity and mutual respect in their relationships. The staff on an individual basis will determine inappropriate behavior so that respect, propriety, and growing maturity govern such behavior.


Students are expected to be on time to class. Students must be inside the classroom at the time the tardy bell rings. Individual teachers may require more than this minimum.


Truancy will be defined as cutting school all day or an unexcused absence from an individual class period. It is a serious offense and appropriate action will be taken if students choose to be truant.
