School Policies

Policy on the Use of Electronic Devices by Students in the Classroom

Electronic devices pose a distraction in school.  To facilitate keeping our students and teachers focused on the lessons in the classrooms, it is the policy of the Arthur Gutmanstein Religious School that that all electronic devices (e.g. smart phone, apple watch, fitbit w/ smart phone connectivity, etc.) not be used during class time.  If an electronic device needs to be brought to school, it is to be turned off by the student prior to the start of class.  Teachers have been instructed to take any electronic device being used without teacher permission during class time.  The device will be kept in the School Office and returned only to an adult after class.  In the event of any emergency, the school office phone (516-938-8610, ext. 111) is available for both incoming and outgoing calls.  We appreciate every student's and parent's cooperation.

Policy on Food

No food containing tree nuts, peanuts or sesame seeds is allowed in the school. Please read labels and make sure that the food your child brings to school is kosher and peanut free.

Dismissal Procedures

In general students in all classrooms will be brought to the inside area in front of the Ballroom. Arrangements can be made to accommodate special circumstances.
