Detention Policy-
  • Teachers may give classroom detentions for a variety of reasons.  The student will be notified verbally of the detention.  In addition, some teachers may issue detention notices for parent signatures and/or post in the classroom a detention list of students.  Whatever method is used, teachers will give students at least 24 hours notice of the date the detention is to be served.  Most detentions are to be served after school, but some teachers may allow before school or, on rare occasions, lunch detentions.
If a student fails to serve a teacher detention, the student will be referred to the office.
