Dear Students and Parents/Guardians:
Cabrillo High School will ensure the effective and efficient use of the entire class through “Operation START On Time!” The procedures are outlined below and will be in effect beginning Tuesday, September 8, 2015:
All teachers will help supervise the area around their classroom during passing periods. When the bell rings, teachers having class will close their doors and begin teaching immediately.
7:50: All students must be in class, ready to work.
Up to 8:20 am: During first period, tardy students will be allowed into class.
After 8:20 am: any students out of class are truant and will be escorted to a particular location for the remainder of the period to review the attendance policy. Administration will keep this written explanation in student records. This explanation may be sent in the mail to the parents/guardians. Each time a student is tardy or truant, the parent(s)/ guardian(s) will receive a phone call via School Messenger. Teacher attendance records determine assigned detentions and all student detentions may be monitored by parent(s)/guardian(s) via ParentVue, calling the school directly or coming in for a scheduled conference.
The consequences, for repeated tardiness to periods one through six, are as follows:
1st Consequence: Warning Period 1; Period 2-6 will be an immediate detention
2nd Consequence: Warning Period 1; Period 2-6 will be an immediate detention
3rd Consequence: Detention – 30 minutes
4th Consequence: Detention – 30 minutes
5th Consequence: Detention/Parent Conference
Students will get a referral to the Cabrillo Attendance Review Team for excessive tardiness and/or truancy to determine appropriate intervention and/or consequence. Chronically tardy or truant students may receive additional consequences to help them learn the importance of punctuality.
Tardy and truant students run the risk of loitering and/or truancy citation at any time of the school day when they are not in class or arrive to school truant. Citations vary from $225 to $900. In addition, a parent/guardian must accompany the student to court and student's driver license may be suspended or issuance delayed.
The staff of Cabrillo High School is confident that these procedures will increase learning time for all students and will contribute to the positive and business-like atmosphere of our school. Thank you for your cooperation and support.
