MOT Charter School’s Handbook outlines the rules and expectations for appropriate conduct in our school. Topics covered include, but are not limited to: academic, attendance, dress code, bus safety, technology use, health & safety policies; and details the consequences for infractions. The handbook is required by state law and is intended to promote a positive learning environment and safe schools. We ask that all parents/guardians review this information with their student in order to promote understanding and compliance.

School Hours

Doors open for students at 8:15 am. Students are marked late and must be signed in by a parent if they arrive after 8:25 am.

Last period ends at 3:25 pm. No student may be in the building or on the campus after hours unless they are being supervised in a school activity, club or sport. The K-8 building closes at 5:00 pm, all students must be picked up at this time.

Dress Code

In order to keep students focused on academics, MOT Charter requires the following dress code:

  1. Both long and short sleeve school polos are available for purchase from Rush Uniform, or can be purchased at any store in Navy, Red, Yellow or White.  Pants must be Khaki or Navy.
  2. Long sleeve shirts (of any color) may not stick out from under short sleeves.
  3. Dress code includes the wearing of school fleeces, school sweaters and vests.  The fleece outerwear is part of the uniform-compliant items you can purchase from Rush to allow students to have temperature control and still be compliant. Other outerwear, including spirit wear/team sweatshirts, denim jackets, etc. is not permitted. School fleeces must be worn appropriately, as a jacket and not in the front (like a snuggy).
  4. Only school dress code items are permissible during the school day.  Spirit wear t-shirts/hoodies may only be worn at sports practices.  Students may wear a school spirit t-shirt for PE class, but they may not be worn at other times in the building except on dress down days.
