With the institution of School Wide Positive Behavior Intervention (PBIS) Support, any infraction that occurs requiring an assigned out of school suspension is considered a major offense. Any student that causes a major infraction resulting in an out of school suspension will not be allowed to participate or attend any school function. It is our philosophy that school events are designed for students that have not broken the rules and are in good standing academically and behaviorally. These events include all dances including prom, any celebration of achievement, and the senior barbeque. If a student is out of school suspended they are not allowed on school grounds or at any before or after school sponsored event while on suspension this does include away sporting events.
Reminder regarding hallway passes: Any student leaving your classroom must have a signed pass (in their planner). No planner, no pass. No passes for restroom. Call for security if a student must use the restroom. Students should be reminded that they have 5 minutes between classes to use the bathroom. There is no passing time/passes between 3rd hour and SSR. No passes during SSR. Students should not leave class during announcements or during reading time.
