Class Rules

Consequences of Ignoring Class Rules      ««


The consequence will depend on the seriousness of the infraction, so what follows is only a guideline that may or may not apply to your particular case.


You will receive no more than two warnings — and those warnings are NOT "per rule" warnings. For example, you might receive one warning for language and another for throwing trash on the floor: You have therefore received your two-warning maximum and the next consequence will be applied on your third infraction even if it is completely unrelated to the other two infractions.


After two warnings you will receive no more than two detentions.


After no more than two detentions there will be a parent-teacher contact.


After the parent-teacher conference you will be referred to the school discipline plan and/or the office.
