We Care - Know The Rules
The School Board of Broward County, Florida (SBBC) consists of nine elected School Board Members who serve four-year terms. Two of the School Board Members are elected “at large” by all of the electors in Broward County. The other seven School Board Members are elected from seven school board member residence areas. The School Board Members, along with the Superintendent, oversee the sixth-largest District in the nation. The SBBC implements policies that govern ethical, fiduciary, and scholastic mandates, protocols, and procedures for the District's schools, offices, and departments subject to any applicable federal, state, or local laws. The SBBC answers to the residents and taxpayers of Broward County in an ethical, open, and transparent manner.
A school principal may supplement District policies by outlining rules specific to the school such as uniform colors, cell phone usage areas, and drop off/pick up times. However, school rules are limited in scope and do not supersede school district policies.
Our school is proud to provide a safe and secure learning environment - an environment that fosters intellectual development, creativity, and friendships. These rules and guidelines enable us to create, sustain, and grow this wonderful community at Hollywood Park Elementary School. Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with our School Rules.

According to SBBC Policy 5.5: All students under 16 are required to attend school every day of the 180-day school year. Absences are established by tardiness, early sign-outs, or absences for all or part of any day. The maximum number of acceptable absences is 5 days. Additionally, please note that students may not be released after 1:40 p.m.
- Parents have 2 days (48 hours) in which to report an absence.

Students must arrive at school on time every day. The first bell rings at 8:00 AM. Students should be in class by the two-minute warning bell at 8:08 AM.
Students arriving after 8:10 AM will be considered TARDY. If students arrive after 8:10 AM, the student will need to obtain a pass from the front office to be admitted to class.
The dismissal time is 2:10 PM. All students are expected to remain in school for the entire school day. If students are dismissed early, they must be picked up by 1:40 PM. No students will be dismissed 30 minutes prior to the last bell for safety reasons.
Possession of a wireless communication device that disrupts the educational process is a violation. Cellular phones, camera phones, and pagers are prohibited at all times during class unless specifically instructed to do so as part of the lesson.
Code Red Drills
Code Red Drills have been mandated for all schools by the State of Florida to ensure the safety of our students and staff. These Code Red Drills will be implemented on a monthly basis, similar to fire drills. The date of the drill will not be pre-announced due to potential security and attendance issues. Please do not contact your child during the Code Red Drills as it is important for all students to learn the safety procedures in case of an emergency. Our school will send families Parent Link messages via phone call, text message, and/or e-mail notifying you that the drill has been conducted.
The dress code rules enforced at our school align directly with the District's Unified School Dress - Policy 5309. Review the District policies outlined on this page for more information.
Appropriate dress and grooming can help to create a positive learning environment. Other attire may be allowed for special school activities with the approval of the school administration. Possible consequences for violating the dress code are found in the Discipline Matrix. Changes in clothing trends will not override the dress code policy.

All visitors including parents must check into the front office prior to going to any classrooms or any area on campus. An official photo identification (ID) is required. Acceptable forms of ID include the following:
- Driver’s license

- Only allow your children to exit and enter your vehicle on the curbside. Please do this as quickly as possible so that we can keep the flow of traffic moving.
- Never leave your vehicle while in the car pick-up area. If you need to park, please pull into a parking space.
- Never ask your children to walk in front of vehicles while in the car pick-up area.
- For your child’s safety and to maintain the flow of traffic, car pick-up signs with your child’s name and teacher should be displayed on the front dash.
School and day care busses will be the ONLY vehicles allowed in the front of the school from 7:30-8:30 a.m. and 1:30-2:30 p.m. Please do not enter the bus area during that time.
