Frequently Asked Questions

Below you will find the answers to some of your most frequently asked questions. If you’d like further information after reading the answers below, please take some time to review our student handbooks (found on the school pages of this website). As always, you are welcome to give us a call with any additional questions you may have.


What is the dress code for Seligman schools?

We expect our students to dress in a way that shows respect for themselves, for others, and for their school. Students may not wear any clothing that distracts from the learning experience. Specifically, we do not allow:

  • Shirts that expose the midriff and back or that are cut 2” below the collarbone 
  • Shorts/skirts that do not pass the “fingertip-length” test or that are not hemmed 
  • Clothing that promotes drug- or gang-related activity or that is profane or defamatory 
  • Clothing that shows the underwear 
  • Headgear worn indoors, unless it is used for occupational safety 
  • Bare feet or slippers 
  • Spikes, chains, or similar jewelry that may damage school property

All persons including but not limited to staff, students, vendors, visitors, and volunteers may wear a face covering while on district property, in any district facility, at any district event (whether indoors or outdoors), and in any district vehicle including busses or vehicles rented or leased by the district.

Face coverings should not be worn by:

  • Children under the age of two.
  • Anyone who has trouble breathing.
  • Anyone who is unconscious, incapacitated, or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance.

Students under the age of five are not required to wear face coverings.

Students shall be allowed breaks to remove their face covering in a safe environment.

The superintendent may make other exceptions to the requirements to wear a face covering while keeping in mind the health and safety of everyone involved.

Face shields may be an acceptable alternative to face coverings.

Face coverings are to fully cover a person's nose and mouth, ideally fitting snugly but comfortable against the sides of the face and under the chin. They are to remain affixed in place without the use of one's hands and are not to have holes. They are to be laundered regularly or disposed of appropriately.

A face covering does not replaced the need for frequent hand washing, covering coughs and sneezes, and practicing physical distancing (six feet away) to the extent possible. Individuals are to be reminded to avoid touching their face covering and to wash their hands frequently. To ensure the proper use of face coverings, staff and students are to be educated on how to wear and care for their face coverings.

We reserve the right to determine whether a student’s clothing is appropriate for school. For more details regarding our dress code, please review the student handbook.

What will happen if my child becomes ill while at school?

If a student becomes ill, we will attempt to notify a parent or guardian promptly, and we will care for the student in our nurse’s station until a parent or guardian arrives. Students may not leave school grounds without either a parent or another approved adult (as listed on the student’s information form). If the situation is a medical emergency, we will follow standard emergency procedures.

Can I visit my child at school?

Of course! We encourage our parents/guardians to visit your children at school and consider volunteering. Please give our teachers and office staff 24-hour notice to prepare for your visit, and let us know if you will be joining us for lunch. For security purposes, students from other schools may not visit during the school day. All parents, visitors, and substitute teachers must sign in/out at the front office and wear a visitor badge while on campus.

All persons including but not limited to staff, students, vendors, visitors, and volunteers shall wear a face covering while on district property, in any district facility, at any district event (whether indoors or outdoors), and in any district vehicle including busses or vehicles rented or leased by the district.

Cloth face coverings should not be worn by:

  • Children under the age of two.
  • Anyone who has trouble breathing.
  • Anyone who is unconscious, incapacitated, or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance.

Students under the age of five are not required to wear face coverings when students can socially distance or are outside in playground settings with distancing.

Students shall be allowed breaks to remove their face covering in a safe environment.

The superintendent may make other exceptions to the requirements to wear a cloth face covering while keeping in mind the health and safety of everyone involved. Exceptions include student(s) needing medical statements to not be able to wear a mask. In such cases, the student will use the face shield as an acceptable alternative to face coverings.

Students who refuse to wear any form of face covering, unless prevented by a health condition documented by a physician, will be sent home. Continuing non-compliance with the safety protocol to be on campus for in-person learning, students will be required to do distance learning off campus

Face shields may be an acceptable alternative to face coverings.
