Rules for Parents

Las Vegas Gakuen is operated with the asistance and understanding of the host school, The Delta Academy. As these classrooms we use are borrowed from the teachers and staff who use them during the week, it is safe to assume that few of these teachers submit to letting their classroom be used by others with great alacrity. In the past, because of complaints brought to the principal about damaged bulletin postings and classroom equipment, an entire grade (of Las Vegas Gakuen) lost its privileges to a classroom. Also, stemming from neighborhood complaints about raucous students during morning drop-offs and afternoon pickups, a separate Japanese language school in a different region has had the experience of losing all its privileges to an entire school. Likewise, there is no long-term guarantee of our continued access to the facility. In order to secure a stable learning environment for our children, we need to comport ourselves with a sense of control and an awareness of our given situation.
WE ASK THAT YOU COMPREHEND THESE CIRCUMSTANCES, THAT YOU ADHERE TO THE RULES OF LAS VEGAS GAKUEN, AND THAT YOU INSTRUCT YOUR CHILDREN TO DO SO AS WELL. In particular, please make note of the following:

 

Drop-offs and Pick-ups
a)
Especially parents of kindergarten and lower grade students (C1 & L100), please directly escort your child to and from a handoff with the teacher at the classroom.
b)
Make sure to respect the designated times for drop-offs and pickups.
c)
Refrain from honking your car’s horn or creating any other disturbances.
   
Absences, Tardiness, Leaving Early
a)
When you know in advance, please give your child’s teacher notice by turning in the specific form provided for this purpose. In the event of same day notice, please telephone the teacher or our office, and still be sure to retroactively submit the same form at your next opportunity.
b)
In cases of absence or early departure from school, please have a sibling or friend receive homework assignments from your child’s teacher. If this cannot be arranged, in advance please present the teacher with a 6x9 inch or larger, self-addressed, stamped envelope (with postage of at least 87 cents).
c)
When your child is either tardy or leaving early from class, please be sure directly escort your child to and from a handoff with his or her teacher.



Withdrawals from School

At least two weeks before your child is to leave school, please submit to your child’s teacher a written notice of withdrawal attentioned to the office.



Changes of Address, Telephone Number

Promptly report any such changes by turning in to your child’s teacher a written notice attentioned to the office. This includes changes in daytime/work contact information. Similarly, please share any changes in contact information with the Parents Association, as they need to be able to contact you in cases of emergency while school is in session.
 
Accidents, Illness at School
a)
Again, please promptly report any changes in the contact information you provided on the emergency card and enrollment form.
b)
In the event of an accident or sudden illness with your child, you will be contacted by this contact information you provided on the emergency card. While school is in session, please remain accessible by phone or by remaining on campus in the hospitality room at school. At the same time, make sure that your child knows how to contact you in the event of an emergency. For younger children, keep and update such contact information in the memo book they bring to school each week.
c)
Taking medication at school is prohibited. When your child is ill, if at all possible, please refrain from sending him/her to school. In cases of attending school with mild illness, when your child is on the mend from being sick, or there is any other situation of which the teacher should be apprised, please do so by written notice.
