What if my child needs to leave school early?

If scheduling conflicts cannot be avoided, a parent or guardian must sign out and pick up students at the front office. But instruction time is important, so please try to schedule medical visits and family outings outside of school hours.

Do you enforce a dress code at Cody Middle School?

We expect our students to dress in an appropriate manner at all times. Student dress may not present a health or a safety hazard, violate municipal, county, or state law, or present a potential disruption of the educational process. Generally, we do not allow:

  • Spandex, stretch cotton shorts, skirts, or dresses that measure more than three inches above the top of the kneecap when in a kneeling position
  • Spaghetti-straps or shirts and dresses with less than three inches of a sleeve
  • Clothing that exposes any part of the wearer's midsection or underclothes, even if covered with or by appropriate clothing
  • Clothing with any logo, writing, symbols, or numbers that reflect violence, malicious behavior, offensive language, sexual innuendo, drugs, alcohol, tobacco, or anything otherwise considered disruptive or gang related
  • Clothing not intended for daily active wear (for example: pajamas, slippers, or swimsuit cover-ups)
  • Non-prescription dark glasses worn on the face or head, hats, caps, or other headgear unless designated for a specific purpose 
  • Students on school property or at any school activity to wear, possess, use, distribute, display, or sell any clothing, jewelry, bandana, emblem, badge, symbol, sign, or other item perceived as evidence of membership in or affiliation with a gang

Will my child have access to the Internet while on campus?

Students can access the Internet for homework and school-related research from our computer lab, library, and some classrooms under the supervision of qualified school personnel. We expect our students to behave responsibly with school-supplied technology; we do not allow iPads, Chromebooks, or Macbooks into our commons during lunch or outside during recess

How can I get more involved?

We strongly encourage your involvement. Please take the time to introduce yourself to your child’s teacher and let him or her know that you’re interested in getting involved. We also invite you to join the PTO at your school and make your voice heard! Parents can also support their child’s education in some basic ways, including:

  • Encouraging your child to get plenty of sleep 
  • Offering a healthy diet, including a good breakfast (or getting your child to school early enough to eat breakfast in our cafeteria)
  • Helping your child get up in plenty of time for school
  • Providing neat, clean, comfortable clothes
