Prescribed medication must be in the pharmacy container, labeled with the child's name, medication, prescribing practitioner, and directions for use. Over-the-counter medications must be in the original manufacturer's container. Written permission from the parent/guardian must be carried by the student at all times.
Controlled substances, like medications prescribed for pain or ADD/ADHD, may not be carried by students and must be maintained and administered in the health office.
Students in grades K-12 may self medicate with prescribed medication for asthma or severe allergic reactions per NRS 392.425. A request to Authorize Students Self-Administration of Prescribed Medication for Asthma/Anaphylaxis (HS 96) must be completed by the parent/guardian AND licensed health care provider and returned to the health office.
Students who self-medicate are NOT monitored by the health office personnel or the school nurse.

CHARACTER & COMPLIANCE
All students are expected to behave appropriately while at school and during extracurricular activities. The essence of good discipline is respect; respect for others, respect for self, and respect for rules. This attitude, which begins at home, is reinforced at school and applied through life. In order to guarantee an excellent learning environment for all students, the following school-wide discipline policies have been adopted. It is based on the expectation that no student will interfere with teacher instruction, another student’s learning, or engage in any behavior that is not in their best interest or in the best interest of others.
At LVA, we recognize and appreciate that the majority of our students conduct themselves in a positive and constructive manner at all times. Student are expected to exemplify the LVA Way. However, it is important that all students carefully read and become familiar with the rules and consequences so that there are no misunderstandings. Please remember school rules and expectations apply while at on-campus or off-campus school-related activities as well on the way to and from home. During online distance learning, school rules still apply.
When students engage in inappropriate behavior, they will be dealt with fairly and consistently. Students may be subject to a range of disciplinary actions based on the nature of the infraction, the number and types of behavioral referrals, and the frequency at which the student is referred for disciplinary action. This range includes, but is not limited to, student conferences, detentions, required parent conferences, formal suspensions, recommendation for placement in Behavioral Program, recommendation for expulsion, and/or arrest.
DEPARTMENT OF MOTOR VEHICLE
(DMV) ATTENDANCE POLICY (SB 269 )
SB 269 – Senate Bill 269, effective on January 1, 2015, establishes new school attendance requirements for application of a learner's permit or driver's license and requires imposing administrative sanctions on students with poor attendance. As of January 1st, all students under the age of 18 who wish to apply for a learner's permit or driver's license must submit a completed DMV-301 form to the DMV office at the time of application. The DMV-301 requires a school official's signature verifying the applicant has attended at least 90% of the school days in the current semester. Students who do not meet the 90% attendance standard in the current semester will be unable to apply until the next semester, provided they have met the 90% standard during that semester. Students who have three or more unapproved absences may be deemed a habitual truant, issued a truancy citation, and suffer a suspension of their driver's license for three (3) months for the first offense and nine (9) months for the second offense. Students who do not have a valid driver's license will not be eligible to apply for a learner's permit or a driver's license, once they become eligible to apply, for thirty (30) days for the first offense and sixty (60) days for the second offense. Students who turn 18 during the suspension, will be required to complete the terms of the suspension before becoming eligible to apply for a learner's permit or driver's license.

Once a student arrives on campus, the student is to remain on campus until the end of the student’s school day. Students must remain on campus for lunch. Any student needing to leave campus during the school day must have parent permission and check out through the Charcter & Compliance/Counseling Office to receive a passport slip from school. Parents picking up their student are required to show a picture ID and sign the student out in the Character & Compliance Counseling Office or the Health Office.
Students who choose to leave campus without checking out in the appropriate office are classified as truant and will be suspended.
Parents/students who are interested in attending seminary during “Lunch & Learn” time must pick up, complete and return an application through the Character & Compliance Office.
