School Rules

The students and staff at McMillin School believe that a safe and positive school environment is important to both a child's learning in the classroom and to his/her growth as a citizen. In an effort to provide such an environment for our students an established set of behavioral guidelines is beneficial.

  • Each person has the right to use and own property. Taking other people's property, or causing damage to other people's property is NOT permitted.
  • Each person has the right to be different. The students and staff will respect the uniqueness of each individual.
  • Each person has the right to an orderly environment. Children are expected to use good manners in the classroom and the lunch area. They are expected to be neat and pick up after themselves.
  • Each person has the right to be safe and healthy.
  • Hitting, kicking, punching, and other forms of physical abuse towards others are NOT permitted.

Dress Code

The following policy, adopted by the Chula Vista Elementary School District Board of Education on March 7, 1995, describes the dress code expected at McMillin Elementary School:

  • Shoes must be worn at all time. Sandals must have closed toes and heel straps. Thongs or other backless shoes or sandals are not acceptable.
  • Dangling earrings, chains, and keys worn visibly around the neck are unsafe and are not acceptable.
  • Clothing and jewelry shall be free of writing, pictures or other insignia which are crude, vulgar, profane and/or sexually suggestive or which advertise or advocate racial, ethnic or religious prejudice or the use of drugs, tobacco or alcohol.
  • Hats may be worn outdoors only and for the express purpose of sun protection.
  • 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 not acceptable.
  • Articles of clothing and accessories, including hats, belts, books, binders, lunch bags, etc. adorned with graffiti or alleging gang affiliations are not acceptable.

The school staff reserves the right to make judgments on any article of clothing, mode of dress, or hair style which poses the potential for the disruption of learning and/or compromises a safe and orderly learning environment.
