WELCOME TO PARENTS The faculty and staff of Chase Middle School would like to welcome you. We anticipate our students making great strides in learning and look forward to offering each student the opportunity to reach his or her full academic, mental, and physical potential. We offer a comprehensive and challenging curriculum that provides a strong knowledge base for students of varied abilities. We encourage you to become involved with the school, your student’s team, and as a volunteer. Chase Middle School is committed to maintaining the safest environment possible. If at any time you have a question that pertains to safety, please contact the school immediately. We look forward to working with you in your child’s educational interests. VISITOR PROCEDURES As a measure of safety for all students, all parents and visitors should check in at the office. Visitors may not interrupt a class in session or visit areas not approved by an administrator. Any staff member seeing a person without a visitor’s badge should ask, “May I help you?” and indicate to the visitor that he or she must first sign in at the office. Failure of visitors to sign in at the office will be reported to an administrator and the School Resource Officer (SRO). We use an electronic ID system that requires visitors to have a picture ID for obtaining a school pass or checking out student(s). COMMUNICATION PROCEDURES Classes will not be interrupted for nonemergency phone calls for teachers or students. If you need to speak with a teacher, the office will take a message and the teacher will return your call at their earliest convenience. Messages for students are taken in the office and put on the message board. Students’ names are called on the intercom during the afternoon announcements if they have messages. Students should go by and pick up their messages from the message board. Please call with changes to transportation by 12:00 PM. If you need to meet with a team, teacher, or an administrator, please call ahead at (828) 2471043 to schedule an appointment. ATTENDANCE POLICY Academic success goes handinhand with attendance. Students are expected to make up any work missed as a result of an absence. Rutherford County Schools’ policy stipulates retention for students absent more than 12 days. Middle School students who are taking high school courses are expected to follow the high school attendance requirements for those courses. Students who miss more than 2 class periods in a high school course
(without making up the time) will receive an F /50 for the 6 weeks. Appeals may be submitted for emergencies and medical issues to the Student Service Management Team (SSMT) for consideration. MORNING PROCEDURES
Please arrive to school after 7:15 AM each day.
All students are encouraged to eat a healthy breakfast in the cafeteria at no cost. Students should report to the commons area to await the morning bell. All students who arrive after 7:25AM should either go to breakfast or to the gymnasium. Those students eating breakfast at school should report to the gymnasium immediately after breakfast. Sixth grade students will wait in the cafeteria and students in 7th and 8th grade will go to the gymnasium until dismissal to homeroom. In the gymnasium, students are to sit down as directed by the teachers on duty until the 7:40 AM bell rings. NO FOOD ITEMS OR DRINKS ARE ALLOWED IN THE GYM AT ANY TIME! FOOD AND DRINKS ARE TO BE CONSUMED IN THE CAFETERIA ONLY OR IN CLASSROOMS AS PERMITTED BY TEACHERS! Once students are in the gymnasium, they will not be allowed to go to breakfast. Students are allowed to socialize, but are not to horseplay. When the 7:40 AM bell rings, students should go to the restroom, get all essential materials, and arrive at homeroom before the 7:45 AM tardy bell rings. If a student is late to homeroom, the student should check in at the office. Tardies will be given any time a student is late, regardless of the reason. Students are expected to arrive and remain in school the full day. Tardiness and early checkouts are strongly discouraged because students miss important instruction; therefore, three (3) unexcused tardies and/or three (3) unexcused early checkouts per six weeks may result in a requirement to make up time after school per teacher discretion. Buses arrive at school between 7:15 and 7:40. These students will follow the above procedures. Beginning at 7:15 AM, teachers and/or staff members will be on duty in the gymnasium, cafeteria, commons area, and in the bus parking lot. At no time during the day should a student be on another grade level hall without a hall pass.
ARRIVAL AND DISMISSAL Students in 6th grade should be dropped off and picked up in the bus lot on Morrow Motor Road. Students in 7th and 8th grades should be dropped off and picked up at the front entrance off Chase High Road. If students in more than one grade are riding together, the driver should use the higher grade for determining which parking lot to use. Students should only be dropped off at the sidewalk. Please do not drop your student off in the middle of the parking lot. This is extremely dangerous and interrupts orderly flow of traffic. All vehicles picking up and dropping off in the bus lot must enter from the lower entrance. It is illegal and dangerous to pass a school bus when it has stopped to unload children. If you are on Morrow Motor Road in the afternoons and a bus is in the left lane to exit the parking lot, please allow the bus to exit; this will speed up the process. In the afternoons, cars should line up single file in the bus parking lot in preparation for dismissal. Buses will exit first.

Rutherford County Schools Policy The Rutherford County Board of Education recognizes that cellular telephones have become a method by which people communicate with their children. Due to safety concerns, the board understands the need for parents to stay in contact with their children. Therefore, it is the policy of the board to allow cellular phones and other wireless communication devices in the schools as long as they are not turned on, handled, or visible during the instructional day or as otherwise directed by local school rules or school personnel. The school principal may authorize use of a cellular telephone when there is a reasonable need for such use. Violations of this policy may lead to disciplinary action against the student for disruptive behavior.
If the phones or other devices are on, handled or displayed during the instructional day or in violation of local school directives, school personnel are to confiscate the phones or other devices. The student's parent or guardian must come to the school and sign for the release of the phone or device. If the student has a phone or device confiscated by school personnel a second time during the school year, the phone or device will not be returned to the student until the end of the school year. Neither school personnel nor the board will be responsible for damage to or loss of confiscated cellular phones. Use of cellular phones and other electronic devices which emit noise may be prohibited from school buses when safety becomes an issue. *If a student’s phone is confiscated during the school day, the parents/guardians may pick up their child’s phone at the end of the school day from an administrator if it is the child’s first offense. Progressive Discipline Matrix
The Rutherford County Discipline Policy for Grades 68 is the official foundational document that governs all local school disciplinary activities. Severe incidents such as weapons, fighting, bullying, threats including physical and cyber, and drugs (illegal, prescription, nonprescription, over the counter), alcohol and tobacco will result in an immediate office referral. Major incidents that occur will not follow each incident of action taken but will result in an automatic action taken as determined by administrative staff based upon the discipline matrix. Student behavior will be monitored consistently and incidents will be documented for better communication between home and school. We will keep track of the number of times students behave in an inappropriate way, as an incident. These will be cumulative from all classes. A student who has received no incidents for 5 school days will move back up the scale to earlier incidents. Example: A student who has received after school detention for their 4th incident has the potential to move up to the 3rd incident by going 5 days with no documented misbehavior. 1st Incident WARNING Action taken: Written warning Paper copy signed by parent 2nd Incident LUNCH DETENTION Action taken: Teachers will assign lunch detention.
3rd Incident PARENT CONTACT BY TEACHER & ISS LUNCH DETENTION Action taken: ISS Lunch Detention Teacher Calls or Meets with Parent 4th Incident PARENT CONTACT & AFTER SCHOOL DETENTION After School Detention with Parent Contact (Call/Yellow Paper with Parent Signature) and Counselor Consultation 5th Incident Team/Parent/Student Conference 6th Incident OFFICE REFERRAL (23 DAYS ISS) Action taken: Teachers will send an office referral to administration. An administrator will contact a parent/guardian regarding their child’s discipline status and 23 days of ISS will be assigned. 7th Incident OFFICE REFERRAL (35 DAYS ISS OR OSS) Action taken: Teachers will send an office referral to administration and submit an SSMT (Student Services Management Team) referral. An administrator will contact a parent/guardian regarding their child’s discipline status and 35 days of ISS will be assigned or OSS will be assigned per administration decision. Teachers will schedule a parent conference to develop a plan of action for the student. Conferences should include a team of teachers, parent, student and administration as necessary. 8th Incident OFFICE REFERRAL (35 DAYS ISS OR OSS) & REFERRAL TO SSMT Action taken: Teachers will send an office referral to administration and submit an SSMT (Student Services Management Team) followup. An administrator will contact a parent/guardian regarding their child’s discipline status and 35 days of ISS will be assigned or OSS will be assigned per administration decision. Incidents will be divided up into major and minor incidents. Four Major incidents (ex. fighting) will result in the student being referred to SSMT. (Student Services Management Team) Field Trips

Safety is our utmost concern with bus transportation. Chase Middle School will abide by the following Bus Discipline Plan. Please note that riding a school bus is a privilege and not a right. All bus discipline decisions will be made with the safety of all students in mind. 1. The number one cause of all school bus accidents in North Carolina is driver distraction. The safety of ALL students who ride the bus is our primary concern.
2. Students who ride the bus will be able to do so without fear of verbal or physical abuse. Each bus driver will assign seating as they deem appropriate for students. Your support is appreciated in this effort to insure the safety of all students who ride the buses. 3. Students must complete a Transportation Request Form and have it approved by the transportation department before riding on a school bus. PROVISIONS FOR THE PLAN: The rules for student conduct will be explained and posted on each bus. In the event a student breaks a rule, the consequences will be consistent for all students. Any decision to remove a student from a bus will be made by the assistant principal or principal only. BUS EXPECTATIONS B Behave in an appropriate manner at all times while riding the bus. U Under no circumstance should a student engage in any behavior that is distracting to the bus driver. S Safety is #1. For everyone on the bus to be safe, students must meet bus behavior expectations, bus driver expectations, school behavior expectations, which includes the following: ● Keep hands, feet, and all other items to yourself! ● Watch for bus driver’s hand signals before crossing the road. ● Earbuds should NOT be in ears while exiting the bus. ● Any student riding a bus on which he/she is not assigned must have a note or permission from the office before riding. ● Follow all bus driver rules listed on the bus. CONSEQUENCES: Because of the inherent danger associated with misbehavior on the bus, a student may be suspended from school or from riding any bus without warning. The length of the suspension will depend on the severity and repetitive nature of the offense.
