Study Halls


Study hall time must be used for completion of homework assignments, school projects or reading. Hall passes to and from study halls are privileges and will only be issued by classroom teachers and the Counseling Center. The student must bring enough reading or study materials to fill all study hall time. Unprepared students will be dealt with as in any other class for disruption and/or insubordination. Teachers will allow students to leave study hall only as a privilege.
