Do you allow phones and electronics on campus?
We allow students to use cell phones between classes and during lunch; however, we do not permit the use of electronic devices such as cell phones, radios, video games, music-playing devices, or recorders during the day from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. For the first violation, we will confiscate the item and return it at the end of the day. For subsequent violations, a parent must pick up the item in person. Students bring electronic devices to campus at their own risk—we are not responsible for these items in any way.
What is the tardy policy?
We consider students not in the correct class/work station when the bell rings as tardy (unless holding a pass from a school official). We place tardy students into In School Suspension during that class period. If a student accumulates nine tardies in a given class, we will assign that student to Saturday School. Upon completion of Saturday School assignments, the tardy record resets for that class period.

A parent or guardian must call the attendance office at (520) 385.2336 by 9:00 a.m. to report an absence.
