Individual Discipline Policy:
1st Offense:  Verbal Reminder.
2nd Offense: Verbal Reminder and student is reminded of expected behavior, name on board. A student can have their name erased from the board  if they show improvement in the area of there mistake for 15 minutes.
3rd Offense:  Verbal Reminder, reminder of expected behavior, phone call/email is sent home, check next to name.
4th Offense:  Verbal Reminder, reminder of expected behavior, phone call/email is sent home, referral is sent to Administration. Name on board, two checks equals discipline referral and parent phone call.

Classroom Discipline Policy:
For every classroom misbehavior after the 1st redirection, the class will receive a letter.
When the letters hit N-O-O-N the class will sit quietly for 15 minutes after Recess.
We will then discuss our class behavior and ways to improve to help prevent N-O-O-N from happening again.

Lets have an excellent school year and thank you for your continuous effort toward the education of your student.
