Dress Code

Visitors

Visitors are welcome at Ashworth; however, we are vigilant about the precautions we take in order to ensure student safety.

When a child is released early from school, the person that is picking up the student must be listed on the student's enrollment information as a person to whom the child can be released. The person picking up the student must present a photo ID. We will not release any student to a person who is not listed and/or does not present a photo ID at the time of release.

The outside doors of Ashworth Elementary will be closed and locked at 8:20 AM and will remain closed and locked throughout the day. Any person who enters the building will need to enter through the front doors, sign in and obtain a visitors badge.

AISD is SMOKE-FREE. There is no smoking permitted on the grounds.

Telephones

Each room at Ashworth has a desk phone. Teachers will allow students to call in emergency situations, for discipline concerns, and other matters deemed important. Students should arrange after-school play prior to coming to school. Students cannot be called out of class to talk on the phone.
