    Students leaving the classroom should have a pass.  All employees should ask students for a pass if it is not visible.  Students who need a pass should be escorted back to their classroom.

    Holiday Observance

    Assemblies and classroom programs involving an explanation of religious holidays are permissible provided such programs are designed to explain and illustrate the history and significance of such holidays and do not serve to endorse the religious dogma of such holidays. 

    Holiday symbols or music may be utilized in classrooms as long as they relate to a planned unit of instruction demonstrating the historical significance of the custom or holiday as described in School Board Policy 8800.  Plans must be included as a regular part of the instructional program and are to be reviewed by the administration as part of the regular plan book review.  Parents may choose to request that their child be exempt from classroom holiday activities.  An opt-out letter can be given to parents.  Teachers should ensure that a viable alternative is scheduled for those students and that they are not singled out for undue attention.
