Student Dress
Dress Code
All students who attend Roxborough Primary and Intermediate School are encouraged to dress appropriately for the educational setting. It is essential that students dress according to the weather, as they will be expected to participate in outside activities throughout the year. For the safety of children, we ask that students wear their boots to school, but bring other shoes to change into once they are in the building. All students should bring tennis shoes to wear when they have physical education. We believe a student’s behavior and attitude are related to his or her appearance. Students who present a safety hazard or disrupt the educational learning process because of their dress will call home and request that parents bring a change of clothing. Please note that the final decision as to what is not appropriate will be left up to the principal’s discretion. It is our desire to foster good grooming and good judgment.
Time Allotment
Kindergarten through 4th grade have 25 minutes of lunch time and 5th and 6th have 20 minutes of lunch time.
All students have 2 minutes of lunch recess time and 20 minutes of grade level recess time.
