Rules & Conduct

The following rules have been developed to ensure an environment which is beneficial to learning. Disregard for these rules may result in disciplinary action. These rules apply to all school functions and district property.

Students are also expected to review and follow district policies, as outlined in the Student Rights & Responsibilities.

Class Arrival

  • Arrive to class before the bell rings
  • Be prepared with materials to work with
  • Present a pass when tardy or after having been absent
    • If a student is late to school or for any periods throughout the day, the student MUST go to the Attendance Office for a tardy pass.
  • A tardy is excused if the student arrives to class with a pass given by administrator, attendance office or another staff member.
    • Tardies/late arrivals to school are excused only if a parent/guardian has completed one of the following steps:
      • Called and left a voicemail on the CKHS 24 Hour Attendance Phone Line (360-662-2430).  Parent should leave the student’s name, reason for tardiness and approximate time of arrival
      • Emailed the Attendance Secretary Patty Aflleje at [email protected]
      • Sent a note with the student
      • Stopped by the Attendance Office
  • An unexcused tardy in excess of 5 minutes is considered a truancy.
  • If a student is accidentally marked as unexcused or unverified, it is the student’s responsibility to stop by the Attendance Office for a clearance form.  

Cell Phones and Personal Listening Devices

The use of cell phones and other electronic devices require teacher permission in the classroom.  A student may use personal listening devices during non-instructional time, during his/her lunch period in the cafeteria, outside or approved alternate eating areas, and before and after school hours.  Listening devices require the use of head phones.

(See Electronic Devices Policy )


Dance Policy

Central Kitsap High School dances are for CKHS students and their guests.  To bring a guest, students must obtain a Guest Pass.  No guest may be 21 years of age or older.  No guest passes are issued the night of the dance.  No blank guest passes are issued.  Each pass is for a specific person.  Students are expected to follow the dance rules and procedures as follows:

  • All school rules apply
  • Administration must pre-approve all guests.
  • A sheriff will be on duty for the duration of the dance
  • Students and guests are admitted at the door and must present a Photo ID card.  (School, Military or driver’s license ID is accepted)
  • Students will not be allowed to re-enter after leaving the dance.
  • Central Kitsap High School dress code applies at all school-sponsored events.
  • Most  CKHS dances are formal/semi-formal events.  It is both the guest’s and the student’s responsibility to read and know the Dress Code for Dances.  These rules are posted and it is required that all students read and sign off that they have read the rules before purchasing a ticket.
  • Tickets will not be sold at the door or venue.
  • Personal bags or backpacks brought into a dance are subject to search.

Dance Etiquettte

Inappropriate suggestive dance movements will not be tolerated nor will freak dancing or grinding.  Staff will follow their best judgment on CKHS “Dance Code Etiquette” to determine inappropriate dancing.  A warning will be given if the dancing is perceived as inappropriate and may be followed by consequences if the warning is not adhered to.


Two warnings will be given to students displaying inappropriate dancing.  If warned for a 3rd time, you and your guest may be removed from the dance and may be sent home.  Refunds will not be issued for students sent home.  This policy also applies to guests attending CKHS dances on a guest pass.  



After School Detention: After School Detention is a consequence assigned to students for truancy, chronic tardy and other discipline as determined by an administrator.  After school detention takes place Monday – Wednesday 2:45pm – 4:00pm, and Thursday 1:15pm – 2:45pm.  Students must pre-arrange their own transportation home.

 In-School Suspension:  ISS is an alternative to out of school suspension.  Students in ISS will spend the school day with a supervisor and are not allowed to attend or participate in any extra-curricular activities after school.

Dress Code

Student Dress Code:

Central Kitsap School District believes that the responsibility for the dress of a student rests primarily with the student and his or her parents or guardians and that appropriate attire contributes to a productive learning environment. We expect students to give proper attention to personal cleanliness and to wear clothes that are suitable for the school activities in which they participate. To ensure effective and equitable enforcement of this dress code, school staff shall enforce the dress code consistently and in a manner that does not reinforce or increase marginalization or oppression of any group based on race, sex, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, ethnicity, religion, cultural observance, national origin, household income or body type/size. School-directed changes to a student’s attire should be the least restrictive and disruptive to the student’s school day. Any school dress code enforcement actions should minimize the potential loss of educational time. Administration and enforcement of the dress code will be gender neutral and consistent. 


Appropriate Attire :

Student attire and grooming must be worn that permits the student to participate in learning without posing a risk of substantial disruption of or material interference with school activities or to the health or safety of any student or school district personnel.


 • Clothing must appropriately cover the groin and buttocks areas and breasts with opaque fabric, except that cleavage alone will not constitute a dress code violation. 

• Clothing must cover undergarments, except that visible straps on undergarments worn under clothing are permitted. 

• Clothing must be suitable for all scheduled classroom activities, including physical education, science labs, shop classes, and other activities where unique hazards or specialized attire or safety gear is required. 

• Clothing that is worn must not cause a material or substantial disruption of the educational process or have caused such disruption in the past.

Ill or Injured Students

Although the school makes every attempt to provide a completely safe environment, there are occasions when first aid is necessary or a student becomes ill and is unable to attend classes.  Parents or the emergency contact person on record with the school will be requested to pick up the student.  The school has no facilities for treating ill students.  Students who are ill are responsible for checking out through the Attendance Office. 

Should your contact information change, please immediately contact Beth Roy, CKHS Registrar at
[email protected] or by phone at 662-2448.

Medication While at School

In order for a student to take medication at school (even over-the-counter medications), a licensed healthcare provider’s order for medication must be on file at school. Visit our Medications page for forms and full information.

Medication may not be transported to or from school by students. Any unused medication must be picked up by parent/guardian at the conclusion of the school year or the designated school staff will properly dispose of it. 

Under certain conditions, students may be allowed to carry prescribed inhalers and/or prescribed Epi Pens for asthma or severe allergies.
Written directions for this must come from both the parent/guardian and the physician. The school nurse shall consult with the parent/guardian and/or physician before the student is allowed to carry a prescribed inhaler. If you have any questions regarding medications at school, please contact your child’s school nurse or the CK Health Services Department at 662-1070. 


Student Drivers must complete a student parking packet and a parking fee plus tax.  All vehicles the student may drive to school must be registered and a parking sticker must be displayed at all times.  Failure to display a parking permit on the rear view mirror; vehicle will be considered unregistered and will receive a parking citation.  Parking in staff or visitor parking is not permitted.  Students may park in designated junior or senior lot only.  Failure to follow these rules may result in having driving privileges revoked.  The driver of the vehicle may also be fined and/or vehicle clamped for violation of these expectations.

 Citations are issued for the following violations:

School Pictures

All students must have their picture taken regardless of whether or not you plan to purchase pictures.  An ID card is provided to each student free of charge however, replacement cards will have a fee of $3.00.  School photo packets are available for purchase through the photographer during the August MAZE Days.

It is the policy of the Central Kitsap School District that there be no discrimination against, or by, any student on the basis of sex. In keeping with that policy, the District will not tolerate sexual harassment of or by any of its employees, students, volunteers, or parents. Sexual harassment is a violation of the District’s rules of conduct for the work place and/or educational setting.


There is a phone located in the Attendance Office for students’ use during lunch and before and after school.  The office phones are for business and emergencies only and require office permission.  Use of cell phones is described in the CKHS Electronic Devices Policy.
