SIGNING IN/ SIGN OUT  POLICIES

 

A)  SIGNING IN:

POLICY: It is school policy that students are required to visit the general office and sign if, if they are late.

PROCEDURE: If, for any reason, students arrive late at school or for class they must go directly to the general office and sign in.  A binder with appropriate space for signing in will be kept inside the office.  On the form the students will give the date, their name, reason/s for being late and the time arrived at school or for class.  The students will the go immediately to their class and inform the teacher that they have signed in.  To verily what the student has said, it would be appropriate for the teacher to then check the binder after class.   The teacher is to keep track of instructional time lost and discuss with the student when the time will be paid back.

Periodically, the binder will be checked by administration to determine if a pattern of lateness has developed for a particular student.  Should it be found that a pattern does exist, the student will visit the principal or his/ her delegate to discuss the matter.  Immediately after, contact will be made, by administration, with the home to inform the parent/s of the problem and to discuss ways of rectifying it.  Then, if the problem is not corrected the student will be suspended.

Prior to singing out, the students must have their parents/ guardians permission.  They will then wait in the general office until their ride arrives.
