Wallingford Elementary School Rules

School rules are premised on three underpinnings of good citizenship: Respect for Self, Respect for Others, and Respect for One’s Surroundings. The rules are displayed throughout the school building. A detailed description of our school discipline policy, as well as a reiteration of the rules, is included in the school directory available to parents on Back-to-School Night.
