Code of Conduct

We would like to highlight and clarify some of the most significant principles and policies of the FLS/ FIS “Code of Conduct”.


All students are required to attend school regularly during the entire school term.
Excused Absences: An excused absence is defined as an absence that has the sanction of the parent and the school.
A note explaining the absence which has been signed by the parent must accompany the student on return to school, or a telephone call from the parent if required by the principal.
A student may be excused for a continued or repeated illness provided that a doctor’s verification will be submitted.
If no verification is submitted within three (3) student attendance days upon return to school no excuse will be granted; referral to the school nurse will be required anyway.
Unexcused Absence: An unexcused absence is defined as an absence that does not meet the criterion of an excused absence as mentioned above.
The total number of days allowed for absence is 28 separately per academic year or 14 successively.
Should a student exceed this limit, referrals will be sent home and marks will be deducted for every additional day not attended. Besides, Bureau of Education will be notified..


A tardy is the absence of any student at the start of class.
Excused and unexcused tardies will be defined the same as excused and unexcused absences.
3 unexcused tardies will be recorded as one unexcused absence and the student will be sent home.
Students tardy for a lesson must report to the principal's office for a permission slip.
They will not be allowed to attend the remainder of this lesson and will then attend the succeeding one.


Students are not allowed to roam in the hallways and must carry a hall pass whenever leaving the classroom for any of the following reasons:
- Restroom.
- Clinic.
- Principal.
- Library.
- Locker.
- Administration.


Students are not allowed personal possession of any medication while at school.
Definition: Medications used in the treatment of a physical condition and/or illness, which shall include but not be limited to all forms of pills, tablets, capsules, lozenges, liquids, creams, etc., that may be taken internally or applied to the body.
1- An adult must bring all medications to school that are to be administered to students by school personnel.
2- Medication must be in the original labeled container.
