LAMS holds a Homework and Academic Time (HAT) on Wednesdays during the regular school day.  During HAT students may remain in their 8th period to finish homework, or attend prearranged help sessions or work on enrichment activities.  Regular classes will only be shortened slightly to accommodate for this additional time during HAT.  HAT will be tied to 8th period, our last period of the day. Below is an example of what the Wednesday schedule looks like:

Student Conduct 
LAMS administration and staff strive to provide and maintain a safe, equitable, and positive environment that promotes intellectual and personal growth and development. Discipline interventions are geared to nurture the development of self control, self worth, social responsibility and the acceptance of consequences for ones actions. Our discipline plan utilizes conflict resolution strategies and adult intervention. The plan specifies rules covering the standards of behavior expected from our students. Students who violate the rules will receive natural and logical consequences. Students who follow the rules will reap positive consequences.

Our General School Rules are: 
Be Safe
Be Respectful
Be Responsible

The philosophy of discipline at LAMS is grounded in the belief that learning opportunities can best take place when there is mutual respect and trust. The administration and staff are dedicated to the development of trust and respect between all students and adults. Students are encouraged to make good choices and take responsibility for their choices, including accepting natural consequences, when appropriate.

•    A LAMS staff member will redirect the student’s behavior.
•    A student may receive a Discipline Report for an incident which is a detailed account of the incident and what, if any, action has been taken to address the situation.
•    When referred for misconduct, possible action / consequences may include: a conference with the student, lunch detention, parent contact, school community service, intervention and/or mediation, In School Suspension or Out of School Suspension. This information is documented on the Incident Report.
•    Tardies are also tracked and students with habitual tardies are given a Discipline Report .
This discipline policy was developed in accordance with the Los Alamos Public Schools Board of Education Policies.

Code of Conduct Agreement for Students

Please print agreement, it requires student and parent signature.

LAMS PERSONAL APPEARANCE/DRESS CODE FOR STUDENTS

The School Board recognizes that each student’s mode of dress and grooming  is a matter of individual preference. The Board will not interfere with students’ and parents’ decisions regarding appearance except when their choices disrupt the educational process, interfere with the maintenance of a positive teaching/learning climate or violate reasonable standards of health, safety, decency, and respect for others. The purpose of the student dress code is to encourage students to come to school prepared for the instructional program.

The Board prohibits the displaying of apparel, accessories, or the marking of the skin with designs or patterns, which advocate drugs, tobacco, and/or alcohol use, violence, disruptive behavior, disrespect for others, or denotes gang membership.

Two Guidelines to Note:

  1. Students may not wear hats indoors.
  2. Students’ midriffs need to be covered.

National History Day promotes the in-depth study of history through its annual contests at the regional, state and international levels. Students develop strong research, creative and critical thinking skills to develop projects to compete and share knowledge.
