Behavior Expectations and Dress Code

Our goal at Granada is to help students be prepared for high school as well as college and career ready. One way is by teaching our students to be responsible, productive, and minimize things that are disruptive to learning.
Behavior expectations are reviewed schoolwide twice a year as well as within each class room.  Some of our general expectations (but not all) are:
  • Be on time for school (arrive by 7:45 am)
  • Treat others with respect
  • Follow school dress code (see below)
  • Follow school and classroom rules
  • No electronic devices such as cell phones, air pods/earbuds, smart watches are to be used during school hours (including during recess/lunch)
  • Please leave toys, candy, sodas, and other distracting things at home
  • Absolutely no bullying, fighting, vaping, graffiti, vandalism, or weapons are allowed.
Dress Code
Granada follows the AUSD uniform guidelines for students in K-8th grade. Students are asked to wear:
  • Pants/Shorts/Skirts/Jumpers: Navy blue or khaki
  • Shirts/Blouse: Navy blue, white, or school colors
  • One piece outfits: Navy blue, white, khaki or school colors
  • Cardigans/Sweatshirts: Navy blue, white, or school colors
  • Coats/Jackets: Any color (we encourage adding a name inside jackets and sweatshirts!)
  • Tennis shoes or other shoes with a closed toe and heel that allow students to safely and comfortably run
If families need assistance in obtaining school uniforms please contact one of Granada's School Community Coordinators.
