Detention

Consideration will be extended to parents when detentions will be assigned. Students must choose their dates of detention carefully. After-school employment is not an excuse to miss detention. Detentions will be assigned in a timely manner. If they interfere with after-school obligations, it is the student’s responsibility to make arrangements with employers.

Regular: Will be served in Room 310 from 2:30-3:55 pm.
Extended Detention: Will be served in Room 310 from 2:30-5:15 pm.

*Students arriving AFTER 2:30 pm will not be permitted into detention, and will face consequences for missing detention.

Detention on Saturday Morning
Saturday morning detention is a discipline program that will be used to enforce the school discipline code. The program will run from 8:00 am to 12:00 pm. The students will spend four hours in a quiet study. With permission of their parents/guardians, students may also be asked to help clean school grounds. Students not in compliance will be addressed through the Personal Assessment System. The following are the rules and regulations regarding Saturday Detention:

§  students must report by 8:00 am sharp.  Students will be dismissed at 12 noon

§  students must turn off all cell phones, iPods, and electronic devices

§  students are not allowed to talk to other students or sleep

§  students must remain in assigned seats

§  students must bring their school/homework or something to read

§  failure to adhere to these rules will result in students being asked to leave.


If a student is removed, they face further discipline that could result in additional Saturday detentions and/or suspension.
