Detentions will be issued for students that habitually leave their belongings unlocked. Backpacks and cell phones should not be brought out to class. Should the student lose or misplace their lock they will be charged $8 for a replacement. Students that leave their personal belongings outside of a locker or in an unlocked locker may receive detention after school.

    • EACH non-suit after 4 = 2 hour detention
    • Referral per teachers discretion for excessive non-suits

Academic integrity policy/cheating/dishonest in classroom

purpose: To ensure intellectual honesty by creating a fair and consistent policy that clearly defines cheating and its consequences.

cheating is engaging in any form of academic dishonesty, such as:

  • plagiarism (representing the work or ideas of others as your own without proper acknowledgement)
  • cheating (copying the work of another person, falsifying laboratory data, or sabotaging the work of others)
  • other acts generally understood to be dishonest by students in an academic context:
    • Allowing someone else to turn in your work as his or her own.
    • Using or distributing an exam or teaching materials without permission.
    • Using unauthorized material for any exam, assignment or project.
  • There are 3 levels of violations – see Student/Parent Handbook for detailed information (pgs. 23-25)



-10 pts                   NON-SUITS               

-5 pts                     NOT WEARING FULL UNIFORM                

-2 pts.                    TARDIES






            FIVE MINUTES DRESS TIME is allowed at the beginning and end of class. Students are not to be in the Locker Room while other students are out in classes. Restrooms will be open in the gyms for students use. Swimming will be allowed more time to shower.




            Make-up work will be allowed for absences, medical excuse from participation, counseling appointment, and field trips. Make-up work is NOT permitted for suit cuts.  Make-ups must be completed within two weeks of the absence (if health permits).  After two weeks, the student will be able to earn 10% of the participation points for the day or assignment



Make up Day:  Prior arrangement must be made with the student and the teacher to determine which day works best to complete the make-ups during Tutorial.

  • If the student missed a regular day (Monday, Tuesday or Friday) the make-up consists  on running one mile.  
  • If the student missed a block day (Wednesday or Thursday) the make-up consist on running 2 and a half miles to make up the regular participation as well as his/her fitness run.
  • Finals can not be made-up after school or during Tutorial.  If a student misses the day of the final or is not dressed and ready to participate, he/she will receive an incomplete and will have one year to attend finals during a different semester. Incompletes not made -up within a year automatically change to an F.





            Students may be excused from an activity with a parent’s note, up to three days, but with a pending make-up for each day missed. Medical excuses longer than three days must be cleared through the Nurse’s Office with a medical note and the student will need to have a medical doctor fill out a activity modification form which can be obtained from the nurse’s office.
