before the nine week period is over, the student will receive two
additional Saturday Schools. The parent will also sign a contract
stating that if the phone is confiscated for a second time, it will be
kept for the school for the remainder of the school term. Using the PhoneStudents need approval to use the phone in the main office. Two signatures are required; the first one

can be placed on the debt list if they do not have the money when placing a call. Teachers and Substitutes Late Arrivals Attendance Office
