Kingsley Elementary School has established clear expectations for behavior within the school environment in order to support a positive learning community. These behaviors fall into the three categories which define Kingsley’s philosophy: safety, respectfulness, responsibility. Adherence to these expectations contributes to a positive and effective school community in which children are able to thrive. Although each teacher sets their classroom expectations, below is a chart of specific rules and expectations for the common areas in the school.
