Tardies
  • Students that are late to school or late to a
    class cause major disruptions to the school day
    for office personnel and classroom instruction.
  • Excuses for tardies to school will not be
    accepted unless they are accompanied by a
    doctors note. All students are given two
    warnings for tardies (without a consequence) that
    allow for unusual circumstances (wreck that
    slowed traffic, oversleeping, car breaks down,
    etc.). All other tardies will (unless
    accompanied by a medical excuse) be deemed
    unexcused and fall into the 3rd Offense
    category as listed on the next slide
  • Tardies between class periods at GMS is
    unacceptable as students are given ample time to
    get from one class to another. Please work with
    your child to understand that they do not need to
    go to their locker after every class period.

17
Tardies To School/Class

MySpace and Facebook
  • Issues that arise when middle school students use
    MySpace and Facebook many times spill over into
    school.
  • Threats/harassment made on these web sites that
    spill over into school will be dealt with under
    our harassment/threatening persons policy.
  • Threats/harassment made on these web sites that
    do not spill over into school can still be
    treated criminally.
  • Bottom line is simple If your child is on the
    Internet at these (or similar sites), they are
    responsible for the content they post. We highly
    recommend that you disallow, regulate, or monitor
    your childs use of these sites as it could
    quickly become a school issue.

Attendance
  • In order to be successful, students must attend
    school every day. Instruction at GMS is intense,
    and missing any day is a detriment to a childs
    academic progress.
  • Students are counted present only when they are
    actually in school, on homebound instruction, or
    are present at an activity authorized by the
    school principal.
  • The school year consists of 180 days. To receive
    credit, students must attend at least 85 days of
    each 90-day semester course and at least 170 days
    of each 180-day year course, as well as meet all
    minimum requirements for each course.
  • Accrued students absences may not exceed ten (10)
    days during the school year. Any absence in
    excess of ten (10) may cause the student to lose
    credit for the year. Because 170 days are the
    minimum required by the state, the first ten (10)
    absences may be lawful, unlawful, or a
    combination. All absences beginning with the
    eleventh (11th) day must be lawful and will be
    excused if they fall within the following
    guidelines

39
Attendance
  • Lawful Absences
  • Personal illness of a child verified by a
    statement from a physician within two (2) days of
    the students' return to school. Absences for
    CHRONIC or EXTENDED illness will be approved only
    when verified by a physician's statement. (This
    includes doctor's appointments.)
  • Serious illness or death of an immediate family
    member verified by a statement from the parent
    within two (2) days of the student's return to
    school.
  • Absences for religious holidays when approved in
    advance.  Requests must be made to the Principal
    in writing.
  • Absences for extreme hardships must be approved
    by the Principal. Such approval should be
    prearranged when possible.

40
Attendance
  • Unlawful Absences
  • Any student absence, with or without the
    knowledge of the parent, which does not meet the
    conditions for a lawful absence, shall be counted
    as unlawful and will not be excused. When a
    student returns to school from being absent
    he/she should bring a note explaining why he/she
    was absent. The note should be signed by a
    parent/guardian and dated.
  • Students should present parent excuses to the
    Attendance Clerk on the day they return to
    school. This should be done before the 830 a.m.

Class SchedulesRelated Arts
  • Not all students received their top choices for
    Related Arts classes because of demand
  • Related Arts are an opportunity for students to
    be exposed to new things
  • If any student wants a Related Arts class change,
    a parent letter needs to be sent to Mr. Rhymer
  • More than likely, the change will not be possible
