Detention Procedures

If a student's behavior is disruptive, teachers may choose to assign the student to a classroom detention. The procedures for teacher-assigned classroom detentions are as follows:

  • The classroom teacher or administrator will contact the parent regarding the assigned detention.
  • The detention is assigned during lunch time or after school in the assigned classroom.
  • If the consequence is an after school detention, students are responsible for arranging transportation home from school if an activity bus is not available.
  • If a student is absent from school on the day of an assigned detention, the detention will be made up on the day they return.
  • Tardiness to detention may result in disciplinary action.
  • Missing a teacher-assigned detention or misbehaving during a detention will result in referral to the office for disciplinary action.
  • Participation in athletics, extra-curricular activities, performances, or work does not excuse a student from an after school detention. Students have the obligation to inform the coach, sponsor, or employer of the after school detention.

Students referred to the office for misbehavior may be assigned office detentions. The procedures for
office-assigned detentions are as follows:

  • The detention will be assigned during lunch time or after school in a designated room.
  • If the consequence is a lunch detention, students must bring a lunch from home or arrange with the office to have it provided. Students may not enter the commons during lunch on the day of the lunch detention.
  • If a student is absent from school on the day of an assigned detention, the detention will be made up on the day they return.
  • Tardiness to detention may result in disciplinary action.
  • Missing a detention or misbehaving during a detention will result in referral to the office for disciplinary action.
  • After school detentions are held on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 2:45-3:45 pm.
