4. When You Leave Town: Do not leave your child alone or with a housekeeper. It is better
to arrange for your child to stay with another family member or for another adult to stay
with your child in your home. During the school year, ASB requires that parents use the
Temporary Guardian Form to notify the MS office as to the identity of the person who
will be legally responsible for the safety and care of their child if both parents will be
out of town.
5. Money/Allowances: Having too much or too little money can cause problems for Middle
School students. It is difficult to determine a specific amount of spending money since it
depends on what the allowance is to cover. It’s a good idea to work out a budget so that the
student has adequate money for snacks, savings and for emergencies.
6. Personal Safety: Students are advised to travel in groups, especially in the evening. There
is safety in numbers.
