Behavior and Consequences

  • First Offense:                                                Verbal Warning / Name on whiteboard
  • Second Offense:                                            1 check  – Loss of upcoming recess / Counsel student
  • Third Offense:                                               2 checks – Loss of upcoming recess / Parent contacted by the student and/or teacher.
  • Fourth Offense:                                             3 checks – Referral and/or After School Detention
  • Fifth Offense:                                                4 checks – Sent to principal/office.

***Severe Clause:                                               Sent directly to principal/office.  Referral or Class/School Suspension dependent on circumstances.

**Please note that it is possible to move from no checks to multiple checks with one poor behavior choice.  For example, fighting in class would be considered a “Severe” infraction.  This type of behavior is not tolerated by the school, and would result in an immediate suspension.  Just a name on the board, or utilizing any lesser disciplinary action, would not be a sufficient consequence in such a situation.
