    with a hand held electronic device in class it
    will be taken away and the parent/guardian will
    have to come to school to pick it up.

Discipline Policy
  • If a student does not follow the rules they will
    be issued marks. The marks are totaled every
    Thursday by the entire team. If a student
    receives 5-9 marks in one week they will be
    issued an alternative packet. If a student is a
    repeat offender (after two times) they will be
    assigned after school detention.

  • C-Conduct (no detentions or Ns or Us on report

    based on academics and behavior.

  • The grading and homework policies at Edythe J.
    Hayes Middle are designed to demonstrate a clear,
    accurate relationship between a students
    performance and their learning. (This year
    parents should receive the following 2 ½ week
    progress grade with team newsletter, midterm
    grade, and nine week grade)
  • Although failing at something is considered
    gaining life experience on our team 0s are NOT
    an option. (In other words students must try!)

Sick Days
  • Although our school policy is to leave work up
    front in the office after 130 pm for students
    that are sickwe strongly suggest that your child
    rest and get well. Upon returning to school we
    will give your child time to make up work based
    on the time they missed.

Sick Days and Doctor Appointments
  • If your child has an appointment or is sick, they
    must turn in a note to the front attendance clerk
    (Ms. Bradley) on the day they return to school.
    Failure to turn in notes will result in
    (unexcused absences/tardiness) truancy issues
    which can effect field trips, and CAT Cards.
