Uniforms & Dress Code Policy
First Baptist School seeks to honor God by adhering to Biblical standards of modesty for its staff and students. Students wear a standard color and style of clothing as our uniform. Wearing the school uniform properly starts with a desire to honor God and serve others. Students are expected to be in uniform from the time they enter the facility until the time they leave it, including before and after school care.
If a student is “out of uniform”, a Uniform Violation slip will be sent home to be signed and returned the next school day. If it is not returned and signed the following day and the problem has not been corrected, the student will receive an “Out of Order” reminder each day thereafter until the problem is corrected.
Weather Delays & Closings
First Baptist School of Laurel closes for inclement weather in accordance with Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS). On days that inclement weather is a possibility, please check the local television or radio stations for PG County Public School’s status. It is our hope that this policy will help parents and faculty who need consistent notice of the school closing (or delay) during early morning hours.
If FBSL is in session on a non-school day for PG County, the school administrator will make the determination for FBSL’s status. When this happens, the decision will be made by 5:30am and will be announced in the news section of this website and through the school management system.
If your child has a medical condition that requires prescription or over-the-counter medication to be administered during school hours or by one of FBSL’s Medical Technicians (such as asthma or severe food allergies), the school office must have the following forms on file:
– A completed medication form signed by the child’s physician stating that we have permission to administer the medication as well as the dosage to be given and the times to administer
– A food allergy action plan (includes asthma)
– A prescription bottle with the original label (for over-the-counter medications, we must receive the unopened bottle, preferably in the box)
The above requirements are set by the Health Department which licenses our school. Additionally, the parent/guardian of the student must personally give the medication and corresponding forms to the school office. These forms can be found in the Newsletter section of RenWeb.
No medications will be accepted from students.
