Welcome to the Parent Resource Page.
The faculty and staff at Blue Diamond Elementary School believe that education is the shared responsibility of the student, family, school, and community. We believe that strong partnerships can be developed through nurturing respect, sharing knowledge, supporting each partner’s role, collaborating on matters of importance, and by appreciating the contributions each partner makes to student achievement.
This section of our website is here to provide quick and easy access to important information for parents. We look forward to parental input on additional information you would like in this section.
It is important that your child be at school on time each day. Please schedule appointments after school hours. A student is considered tardy when they are not physically present in the classroom at the start of the instructional day, 8:25 AM. Three tardies equal one absence and disqualify a student from receiving a perfect attendance award. Excessive tardies, absences, and early check-outs result in the loss of academic instructional minutes for your child. Students with excessive tardies and absences may be retained or deemed truant (NRS 392.130). Click Here For more information on school polices and CCSD regulations.
School Lunch Information
We are pleased to inform you that the Clark County School District Food Service Department will be implementing a program at Blue Diamond Elementary called Provision 2. All enrolled students at Provision 2 schools are eligible to receive a healthy breakfast and lunch every day for no charge during the 2018-2019 school year. No further action is required of you. Your child(ren) will be able to participate in these meal programs without having to pay a fee or submit a meal application. Only breakfast and lunch meals will be free of charge; the purchase of a la carte items will require payment.
Classroom Food Policy
Blue Diamond school does not allow students or staff to bring food items into school for birthday celebrations. Furthermore, because we have students who have other types of allergies including allergies to specific materials used to make products, students may not bring in birthday bags to be handed out at school. Classroom teachers may continue to celebrate student birthdays at school with birthday crowns, stickers, and/or singing the Happy Birthday song.
Blue Diamond school does not allow students or staff to bring in baked food items, items that may contain nuts or peanuts, eggs or items made with eggs, or other food products that may result in a student having an allergic reaction. With the assistance of CCSD Health Department, there is a list of approved food items that may be served during school celebrations. This list and an updated School Health and Safety Policy letter will be provided to families.
Please note that food products sold in the school's student store do not contain products containing peanuts, nuts, or eggs. The products sold in the student store comply with CCSD Policies. If your child has a food or other allergy, please notify the school nurse.
