No student shall be required to remain in the classroom during any recess or lunchtime; all students shall be required to leave the schoolrooms at recess and lunchtime, unless it would endanger student health.

Detention before or after school hours is considered an appropriate means of discipline.

A student shall not be detained in school for disciplinary or other reasons for more than one hour after the close of the school day.

​The school must give a notice of the detention to the parents/guardians verbally by phone, in writing (hard copy or electronic), or in person during a conference. Under no circumstances shall a student be detained at school without the knowledge and consent of the parents/guardians, who should also be informed of the reason for detention and the exact time the period of detention will begin and end. ​
