All students are expected to be READY, RESPECTFUL, and RESPONSIBLE. Each classroom will have a behavior matrix to ensure the understanding of all expectations upon entering our building. It is the purpose and intent of the teachers and administration of Arlington High School to develop and implement a discipline plan that both adequately handles issues that arise and keeps students in the classroom as much as possible. If at anytime you are unable to follow our expectations, appropriate consequences will be given based on the severity and frequency of the offense(s) that are committed. Below are some basic expectations:
On Time Arrival
Students are expected to be on time to class every period, every day. If the tardy bell rings before they are in class, students must report to a Tardy Table in A, C, or E hallways. There, they will receive a pass to class and a lunch detention for each violation.
AISD expects all students to wear ID badges to ensure easy identification of students and campus safety. All AHS students must wear their school ID at all times, and the ID must be visible. The first ID card is made at no charge during the beginning of the year and there is a $3 fee for any replacements needed. Replacement ID’s may be purchased in your students attendance office or Library.
Adherence to Dress Code:
No offensive or explicit references or designs, shorts must extend to the length of the fingertips, for the entire hemline, dresses/skirts must extend the distance halfway between the end of the fingertip and top of the knee, torn pants must not reveal any area of the skin above the fingertip, no sagging pants, leggings must be covered by a fingertip length top, and for males, shirts must cover the crown of the shoulder. Students in violation of the dress code will be sent to their assistant principal’s office. If the issue can be corrected, they will receive a lunch detention; otherwise, they will be assigned to OCS for the remainder of the day.
Consequences for all other violations may include any of the following, which take place in the AHS Cafeteria:
Lunch Detention: 10 minutes Monday-Friday
After School Detention: 3:00-3:30 Monday-Wednesday
Thursday Night School: 3:00-5:00 Thursday
Saturday School: 8:00-12:00
