Detention

​No student shall be required to remain in the classroom during any recess or lunchtime.

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 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.
