Our School

Arbuckle Elementary School
A Place to Learn • A Place to Grow • A Place to be Safe • A Place to be Proud

Arbuckle Elementary School is a school of character.  The goal of our school is to provide each student with a challenging and rigorous curriculum appropriate to his/her academic level in a safe learning environment.  With parents and teachers working together as a team towards the same goal, every child will succeed.  In order to give each child the best opportunity for success, we keep the vision of “Students First” in all that we do.  If we accept and make the pledge to keep children first, then it follows that education becomes our number one priority.  A school-community with those two concepts as our core values will stand willing and able to do what is needed for educating the children.


Student Dress Code:  The Governing Board of this District recognizes that the District has primary responsibilities for ensuring that students and staff are safe and secure in their persons at school.  The Governing Board encourages students to dress appropriately for school, noting that when they are neatly attired and take pride in their appearance, there is less misbehaving and a better learning atmosphere is created. 

Each school shall allow students to wear sun-protective clothing, including but not limited to hats, for outdoor use during the school day.  In addition, the following guidelines shall apply to all regular school activities:

1.  Shoes must be worn at all times.  For safety reasons, no backless shoes in grades TK-8;

2.  Clothing, jewelry and personal items (backpacks, fanny packs, gym bags, water bottles etc.) shall be free of writing, pictures or any other insignia which are crude, vulgar, profane or sexually suggestive, which bear drug, alcohol or Tobacco Company advertising, promotions and likenesses, or which advocate racial, ethnic or religious prejudice;

3.   Hats, caps and other head coverings shall not be worn indoors;

4.  Clothes shall be sufficient to conceal undergarments at all times.  See-through or fish-net fabrics, halter tops, off the shoulder or low-cut tops, bare midriffs and skirts or shorts shorter than mid-thigh are prohibited;

5.  Gym shorts may not be worn in classes other than physical education;

6.  Hair shall be clean and neatly groomed.  Hair may not be sprayed by any coloring that would drip when wet.

Coaches and teacher may impose more stringent dress requirements to accommodate the special needs of certain sports and/or classes.

Thank you in advance for complying with the district code.
