Campus Policies

Clean Campus

Take pride in your campus.  The appearance of our school is important to all of us.  It is the responsibility of each student to keep the campus clean.


Emergency Cards

Every student MUST have emergency information on file in the main office. If parents cannot be reached in emergency situations such as illness, injury or disaster, Montague staff will notify the emergency contacts on the emergency card.



When in the library, please respect and follow the directions of the adult in charge at the time of the visit.


Lost and Found

Students must assume sole responsibility for loss or damage to any personal property left in classrooms or on campus. Montague Elementary School will try to help protect personal possessions, but it is not responsible for them. Check the “Lost and Found” in the Multipurpose Room for recently lost items. Unclaimed items will be donated to charity after 30 days.

The best way to assure items are returned is to have your name in permanent ink on all articles of clothing, books, and other personal property. If you find something that does not belong to you, please turn it in. It is considered theft if you keep something you find which does not belong to you.  Students who have witnessed a theft or know a student who is in possession of someone else's belongings should inform a teacher or an administrator immediately.



Lunch is considered part of the school day. Students may not leave campus at lunch without permission.  In order to maintain safety and cleanliness, students must observe the following rules:

  • Form orderly lines with no cutting.
  • Sit on benches only, not on tabletops.
  • Place all trash in containers and all recyclable items in recycling bins.
  • Keep all food and drink within the designated eating areas.
  • Glass containers of any kind are not permitted at school.
  • Respect and follow direction of supervisors.
  • Respect the rights of others, as you would want others to respect your rights.



If medication must be taken during school hours, the nurse's office will provide the proper form and procedures. All medications (prescription and non-prescription) must be kept in the nurse's office.



Montague Elementary School offices are important places of business in which all are welcome. However, the office is not a place to “hang out” or loiter. The office staff is happy to answer questions about school procedures or policies. Students coming to any office during class must have a pass or call slip. Parents are requested to refrain from attempting to deliver messages to students via the office staff, except in emergency situations.



Restrooms are to be used for their intended purpose. Students may not loiter in or around restrooms. Vandalism to restrooms will be cause for serious disciplinary action.


Special Occasions

We all enjoy celebrating special occasions such as birthdays. However, sending flowers, balloon bouquets or other gifts to the students during school hours disrupts instruction. Therefore, parents and students are asked to refrain from such deliveries.


Student Textbooks

Students are responsible for the condition of books assigned to them. Textbooks and materials must be returned at the end of the year or when withdrawing from school. Any student who damages textbooks or any other school materials or fails to return these materials will be charged replacement costs. Fines and bills are paid in the library. Unpaid fines may result in the withholding of yearbooks, restriction from end-of-the-year field trips and activities, and/or other disciplinary measures.


Visitor Information

Montague Elementary School welcomes adult visitors. If you wish to visit the campus, contact the main office at (408) 423-1900 for appointment and orientation information. Adult visitors must check in at the main office before coming onto the campus. Montague Elementary School does not allow student visitors at any time.
