Dress Standards

Textbooks and equipment represent a major investment, and it is expected that students will safeguard them against loss or damage. Reasonable wear and tear may occur, but unreasonable damage caused by a student will result in the imposition of fines.

When the student transfers from school or completes a course, all books and equipment must be returned to Kubasaki High School. Students are required to sign for books and must return the same numbered books at the end of the school year or when withdrawing from school.

When textbooks or equipment are lost or damaged, a LOSS OF GOVERNMENT PROPERTY letter will be issued to the sponsor with DD Form 1131, CASH COLLECTION VOUCHER. Payment is due upon receipt of the DD Form 1131. Accounting & Finance will issue a receipt number, and the DD Form 1131 should be returned to the Counseling Center as proof of payment. Charges for damages will be assessed according to the following:

New book or equipment……………………………..Full list price
In good condition. …………………….2/3 of list price
In fair/poor condition 1/3 of list price
If the parent or sponsor wishes to replace the item, please contact the Counseling center for additional information.

Cell phones carried to school must be turned off and kept in the student’s locker, backpack, or purse during school instructional hours. Use of cell phones during the school day is strictly prohibited.
Video Cameras, portable radios, tape players, CDs, DVDs, and other electronic devices or games are not permitted on campus.

A student will not be permitted to attend classes if their appearance does not meet school standards. Parents will be notified by the administration and students will be sent home or parents will be called to request appropriate clothing be brought to school before a student may return to class. Teachers or activity sponsors may set additional dress standards for safety reasons, presenting a good image on field trips, participation in Career Practicum, or other school or off-campus activities.

Blouse tops must be at least three inches wide at the shoulders. T-strap tops, see-through tops with t-strap tops underneath and sleeveless shirts with large armholes are not permitted. Brassier straps should not be visible.
• Hip-huggers will be allowed as long as the hem of the shirt tucks into the top of the pants.
• Pants should not sag to the extent that the crotch is reaching, or below, the knees.

MCB Dress Standards

The administration has the authority to make decisions about the appropriateness of all attire.

Food and drinks are not allowed in the classrooms or the hallways. At teacher discretion, bottled water may be allowed in the classroom during the early fall and spring of the academic year.

Senior lockers are located in the hallway between the Main Office and the IC. This area is restricted to all students except seniors. Ninth through eleventh-grade student lockers are located on the upper and lower levels of the 100, 200, 500, and 600 buildings. It is expected that:

• There is to be no writing on the lockers. There are to be no stickers on the inside or outside of the lockers.
• Pictures inside lockers are acceptable. Please use appropriate judgment in what is displayed.
• Do not slam locker doors.
• Please use combination locks on those lockers that do not have built-in locks.
• Locks will be cut off if they do not belong to the student assigned to that specific locker or if the student requests the lock to removed.
• Keep the locker area clean; this includes the hallways, under the lockers, and on top of the lockers.
• Students are not to share lockers.

The military services have requested the Army and Air Force Exchange Service (AAFES) to operate a daily school lunch program for the DoD Dependent Schools in overseas areas. Under this arrangement, AAFES provides the food and the personnel to operate the cafeterias. AAFES operates the school lunch program on a strictly non-profit basis worldwide. Meal prices are established to cover food costs and operation expenses. Reduced prices and free meals are available to eligible students. For more information, click the picture below.

Student parking is authorized in the last two rows of the main parking lot in front of the JROTC building (700). The parking lot behind the JROTC building is off limits due to bus parking in the afternoons. Parking for students is limited to twenty-two parking slots. Parking permits will be issued at the beginning of first and second semesters. Parking policies will be reviewed as needed with input from student government and the senior class. Courteous driving practices are expected, and violations of safe driving practices may result in the loss of parking privileges, and notification to the PMO.

Each student is responsible for safeguarding his or her personal property. The school cannot assume responsibility for lost or stolen items. The following are ways to help safeguard against theft:

1. Secure individual lockers.
2. Do not share a locker with another student.
3. Do not bring large amounts of money to school.
4. Do not leave book bags outside your locker.
5. Take all your belongings with you when you leave a class.

Kubasaki students, except those suspended, and visitors from other schools, by invitation and approved by administration, may attend designated dance events. Dances will begin, and end, at the discretion of the sponsoring organization. Loitering in the parking lot is not allowed. Once a student leaves the dance, the student will not be allowed to return. Dances usually start at 1900 hours and end by 2300 hours. Requests for DoD identification cards may be conducted to verify eligibility to enter the dance. Students and guests must follow dress codes with the exception of special “theme” dances (e.g. Halloween, Spirit Week.). School rules will apply at all dances.

Students needing to use the telephone during the school day may use the phone on the counter in the Counseling center, or the telephone located near Senior Hall, gymnasium side. This telephone is not to be used for social calls.
Students will not be called out of class for any message unless that message constitutes a true emergency and is from a parent or guardian.

Adolescent Substance Abuse Counseling Services or ASACS is a program that provides drug and alcohol abuse prevention, education, and treatment services to eligible adolescent dependents at 35 locations of the Air Force, Army, Navy, and Marine Corps. It is a year round program.

More Information

Kubasaki High School is always pleased to have visitors that are interested in its educational and extra-curricular activities. All visitors to the school must first sign in at the Counseling Center, and obtain a Visitor's Pass. It is recommended that parents first call the school in order to avoid possible class conflicts, such as special programs, testing, and so forth. Students wishing to bring visitors to school are required to present a written request two days prior to the visit. This written request by the sponsor or parent, including the visitor’s name, must be approved by the student's teachers before a Visitor's Pass will be given. The request must be signed by each teacher and then presented to the main office for an Administrator’s signature at least one day prior to the desired visit date.
