New Detention Policy

It is crucial that students be in their classes in order to maximize learning and achievement. Here at O’Donel High School we are dedicated to ensuring that students are in their classes and that instructional time is preserved. Therefore, we take punctuality seriously and will be setting consequences for students who are late for their classes.

Lateness is monitored over a two-week period (Monday to Friday and Monday to Friday). If a student receives three or more late slips over a two-week period, then they will be assigned a 30 minute detention. This procedure was used last year and we achieved really positive results. However, there were some students who routinely chose to be late on multiple occasions knowing that they would only have to serve a 30 minute detention.


Students who are chronically and consistently late will have an additional consequence. Three detentions for lateness will lead to an automatic 1-day out of school suspension.
