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
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.Back to Top
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.Back to Top
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.Back to Top
