Discipline Slips and Definitions
A discipline slip is referred to as “Incident Report: WARNING” slip. When a student receives one, he/she will take the slip home for the parents to sign. If the slip is not returned to school the next day, the student will lose a recess and the parent will be contacted. Three of these slips in one semester will result in a “Severe Incident Report” slip. The “Severe Incident Report” slip is extremely serious. The consequence of receiving a “Severe Incident Report” slip is suspension and/or expulsion, depending upon the severity of the infraction. This will be determined by the Administrative staff.
We appreciate your cooperation and support in making this discipline program work. Our goal is to strive to meet the individual needs of each student while fostering a positive self-image academically, physically, socially, and emotionally.
