|School is GREAT! Don’t be LATE!|
HSE-Endeavor’s tardy policy has been developed to emphasize the importance of each student arriving on time to school every day and remaining in the classroom for the entire period. Learning personal responsibility by arriving to school and class on time is an integral part of the school’s standard of excellence, which helps prepare students for success.
Students should be inside the classroom by the school’s start time of 7:55am. Any student arriving after this time MUST report to the front office with a parent/guardian to obtain a tardy slip. This procedure is necessary to ensure the safety of our students.
|Discipline Point System|
All Harmony Public Schools implement a Discipline Point System (DPS) in which students are given DPS points for unacceptable behavior. Each unwanted behavior has a numerical point. An accrual of excessive points will result in consequences ranging from Saturday detention to expulsion for continued negative behavior. All teachers and staff are required to implement and enforce the DPS. Parents will be notified via phone and/or email each time points are issued. The Discipline Point System will be used for grades 4-8. Elementary discipline management is done within the classroom and rewards good choices and educates students how to make better choices. Please refer to the HPS Parent/Student Handbook for complete details of offenses and consequences regarding the Discipline Point System.
