Under Chapter 5 of the Code of Criminal Procedure Family violence is defined as any act by one member of a family or household intended to physically harm another member, a serious threat of physical harm, the abuse of a child, or dating violence
All students are expected to adhere to common practices of modesty, cleanliness, and neatness; to dress in a respectful manner within the acceptable standards of the community and in such a manner as to contribute to the academic atmosphere, not detract from it.
The Student Code of Conduct outlines the Arlington Independent School District’s expectations of student dress code.
Students who fail to comply with the dress code will be issued scrubs (shirt and/or pants) to wear for the school day. Providing scrubs to the students will reduce the amount of time students miss instruction to address dress code violations. Students who violate the dress code will be referred to the office where they will be required to correct the problem. They will be provided a pair of scrubs so that they will be in dress code and able to return to class immediately for instruction. The first scrubs provided are free. Every subsequent instance incurs a $2 fee for each piece, if needed. If students do not pay the fee at the time of issuance, it will be noted as a fine. Fines must be paid by the end of the school year. Students will not receive a schedule of classes the following year if he/she has unpaid fines. Students in violation of the dress code will also be subject to disciplinary consequences as determined by the school’s administration.
Note: Any student who refuses to comply with a request to put on scrubs by any member of the faculty, staff, and/or administrator will be considered insubordinate/defiant. Rules governing insubordination will apply as outlined in the Student Code of Conduct.
CAMPUS CELL PHONE POLICY
Cell phones are expected to be powered down and out of sight during passing periods and in class. It is at the teacher’s discretion to allow students to use phones for instruction purposes, and the teacher will direct students to retrieve devices to use and power down and put away at the end of the period.
Cell phones may only be used by students during breakfast and lunch times during the school day.
Ear buds, air pods, and headphones are not allowed to be worn (in/on the ears or around the neck) during the school day, including breakfast and lunch times. It is at the teacher’s discretion to allow students to use these devices for instruction purposes, and the teacher will direct students to retrieve the device to use and power down and put away at the end of the period.
These rules apply for every class and every period.
Please refer to the student handbook on the Boles website for further explanation of this policy.
Boles will conduct random Tardy Lockouts throughout the school year. Any student tardy to class during a Tardy Lockout will be given a minimum consequence of lunch detention.
Tardy lockouts take place when “TARDY LOCKOUT” is announced over the PA system following the tardy bell for any class period. When this occurs, all tardy students are to report to a designated area to receive a “TARDY LOCKOUT” slip. They will not be permitted into class without one.
1st Tardy Lockout—One day lunch detention
All subsequent tardy lockouts—Three (3) days lunch detention
Once a student has received seven (7) days of lunch detention for tardies, any tardy lockouts after the 7th day will result in a Saturday School assignment. After a student serves Saturday School, if that student is again caught in a tardy lockout, the student will be assigned to In School Suspension (ISS).
This process will begin again every six weeks, with students starting with a clean slate.
AFTER SCHOOL SPORTING EVENTS
There has been a growing concern regarding parents/guardians not providing transportation for pickup in a timely manner after the sporting event has ended. This applies to sporting events on or off of the Boles campus.

- A teacher can replace a parent/guardian, but will be responsible for ensuring the student (no more than 3 per teacher) is picked up on
Students will not be assigned hallway lockers. There should be no student items stored in any locker. The only exception to locker assignments is for students participating in athletics. Coaches will assign an athletic locker to all athletes. Students participating in tennis at Martin High School will also be issued a locker.
