Code of Conduct

  • The North Merrick Union Free School District is dedicated to making sure that all of our students are in school and engaged in learning. We believe that all members of the student community need to respect each other in order for our schools to be a positive learning environment for children. The district has a long-standing set of expectations of conduct on school property and at school functions. These expectations are based on the principles of civility, mutual respect, citizenship, character, tolerance, honesty, and integrity.

    The Code of Conduct applies to all students, school personnel, parents, and other visitors at all times on all days when on school property or attending a school event. Please take the time to read this document. Our students will be provided with a version of the Code of Conduct in age appropriate plain language. The Code of Conduct provides the following information:

    Important Definitions
    Student Dress Code
    Prohibited Student Conduct
    Disciplinary Penalities, Procedures, and Referrals
    Special Lunchroom Rules
    Special Safety Rules for the Playground

    The North Merrick Board of Education and staff are committed to providing a safe and orderly school environment. Please refer to the links below to view the Code of Conduct policy and regulations.
