Students will be given checkmarks for inappropriate behavior and “incompletes” for late/incomplete work. When a student has an incomplete assignment, he/she will serve a working lunch during lunch recess on that same day. After 3 checkmarks or 3 incompletes in a week, the student will serve a noon detention. After each subsequent 3 checkmarks or 3 incompletes in the same week, another noon detention will be assigned. Parent contact is made for each detention assigned. After 3 noon detentions in a quarter, after-school detentions will be assigned.
