Students receive commendation card individually and as a class.They can exchange these cards at the end of the year for rewards. Our focus is always to teach our students to reflect and learn from their actions so they may become productive and respectful citizens.

We follow the DOE disclipline code.

Other Policies

Cellular Phone Policy  
​Chancellors Regulation A-413 permits students to bring their cellular phones to school. Use of cell phones when school is in session may disturb the learning environment; therefore our cellular policy remains unchanged. 

  • Students may bring their cellular phones to school. They must keep them in their bags and off while they are on school premise. 
  • Anyone found with a cellular phone will be required to surrender the device to school personnel. The device will be returned to the student by the end of the day and a parent or guardian will be notified. 
  • If a student is found a second time with the cellular phone, a parent or guardian will be contacted and asked to come to school to pick-up the cell phone and meet a designated school personnel to review this policy. 
  • If there is a third violation, the cellular phone will be returned to the parent on Friday. The student will also face disciplinary action. 

**Please Note: Cellular phones are not permitted during State testing. Consequently, all cellular phones will be collected and placed in a box. They will be returned at the end of the test.
