Bullying/Harassment and Social Media

Students and Parents,

As we see an increase in bullying/harassment, especially in social media, I am asking that you read ELM’s and the district policies on bullying and sexual harassment. Every complaint that is brought to us is taken very seriously and appropriate consequences are given; this will sometimes involve the Chula Vista Police Department.

Parents, if you have provided phones for your children, please take time to routinely check their social media to ensure that they are not following or making comments on posts that are all about demeaning other Triton students and staff.

Students, when we catch you, many of you say, “It was a joke.” Know that we don’t think any of these accounts, posts, comments, and likes as jokes. Many of what we have found are cruel and unacceptable. If you have posted, commented, or liked, we strongly suggest that you remove yourself from these accounts so that you do not get in trouble.

Use your social media for good.


Routines & Expectations for Success

Attendance is Key Academic Success:

  • This is a reminder that tardies and absences will affect your child’s academic and citizenship grades.
  • While we do not give detentions for tardies that occur at the start of the day, we encourage you to do your best to get your child here on time. First bell rings at 8:10 and they must be inside the classrooms by 8:15.
  • Absences must be cleared. If not cleared, you will continue to receive a call from the district until the absences have been excused.
  • Students with unexcused absences will be considered verified truant and are subject to appear before the Student Attendance Review Board (SARB) if absences go beyond 10 days.
  • If absences are COVID-related (C19+, Close Contact, COVID-like symptoms), please follow the latest SUHSD COVID Isolation/Quarantine Protocols and the Guidelines for AB 167 Synchronous Instruction.
  • If your absence is COVID-related, please use the ELM COVID Absence Form. Click on this LINK to access the form.
  • For all other absences, please have students bring a note to the attendance clerk upon return.

ELM Dress Code Agreement

  • Please remind your child(ren) that they must follow the dress code agreement.
  • Recently, students have shown up in pajamas and sliders. These are not allowed.
  • If students wear them on campus, they will be taken to the office to change.
  • Here is the link to ELM’s Dress Code Agreement.

Cell Phone Policy

  • Our cell phone policy is in full effect the moment your children step on campus.
  • Please review these expectations in the Students/Parent Handbook.
  • Any violation of our cell phone policy will result in an automatic confiscation of cell phones.

Synchronous Instruction

If your student has a COVID-related absence, please fill out ELM COVID Absence Form. Students will be able to receive synchronous instruction during their absence. If the absence is for five (5) or more days, an Independent Study contract be sent to student and parent/guardian via Adobe Sign, which will require BOTH student and parent signatures. Once signed, the contract will be returned automatically to Ms. Loera who will forward the contract to appropriate teachers. If they are able, student may participate in synchronous instruction. Below is the ELM schedule for synchronous time, which begins 10 minutes AFTER the second bell of each period. Those on independent study contracts will also need to provide ONE (1) completed assignment to Ms. Loera to clear your absences. Additionally, students will submit all missing assignments to teachers during the mutually agreed-upon timeframe.
