School detention will be held weekly. At the beginning of the school year the detention day will be determined. A prior notice of school detention will be sent home to parents/guardians for their signature. (see Appendix)
Teachers may also issue classroom detentions for the infraction of classroom rules. These detentions will be served at the classroom teacher’s discretion and with notification to the parent/guardian. Notice(s) of school detention will be sent home in the brown envelope on Thursday for parent’s/guardian’s signatures, which then has to be returned to school by that Monday. The detention will be served on detention day (normally Wednesday) that week.
The following infractions will necessitate a school detention:
1. Disregard for school rules and disruptive, disrespectful, and uncooperative behavior.
2. Tardiness (every 3 lates constitutes 1 detention)
3. Inappropriate behavior
If these infractions are not improved after two detentions, then follow-up steps will be taken. A Principal/Parent/Student conference will be scheduled at which time further corrective measures, such as suspension, will be taken.
