Every choice an individual makes leads to either a positive or negative consequence.
For example, if you go to work, you'll likely be rewarded with a paycheck. If you quit showing up for work, you'll likely be fired.
Each semester during the 2019-2020 school year, students will be expected to refrain from any minor misbehavior which disrupts classroom procedures or interferes with the orderly operation of the school.
If rules cannot be followed, students will face the following negative consequences:
Traditional Lunch Detention
For the first classroom infraction during the semester, the student will serve a traditional lunch detention by sitting alone and completing the writing assignment as dictated by the teacher.
Lunch Detention with Mr. Lowe
Upon the second classroom infraction during the semester, the offending student will face three days of lunch detention in the classroom with Mr. Lowe.
During this time, the student will not only eat in silence, but will spend all three days researching and defining multiple high-level vocabulary words. Writing will be neat, and definitions will be complete.
Extended Lunch Detention with Mr. Lowe
Upon the third infraction during the semester, the offending student will face a week of lunch detention in the classroom with Mr. Lowe, and the loss of their weekly “fun day.”
During the weeklong lunch detention, the student will not only eat in silence, but will spend their time composing an original 3.5 paragraph essay entitled “The Consequences of My Actions.”
Strikes 2 & 3 also results in the student losing their weekly fun day for the week the infraction occurs.
Repeated infractions will result in a parent/teacher contact or conference with appropriate school staff.
