Students who have 10 cuts will be referred to our Student Attendance Review Board (SARB). Unless your child is ill or out for an excused family emergency, your child should be in class every day

ADAMS ELEMENTARY- A Safe Place to Learn
Student safety is the highest priority for Adams Elementary School. Aside from keeping students safe in a clean, organized, and secure environment, Adams is one of two pilot schools in N-MUSD to begin the OLWEUS Bullying Prevention Program (OBPP). OBPP is a school wide approach to preventing and responding to bullying. Through weekly classroom lessons in all grades, kindergarten through sixth, students learn how to prevent bullying first and respond if they witness bullying behavior. OBPP is research-based and addresses both direct and indirect forms of bullying.
Adams has adopted the following Anti-Bullying Rules:
