  • When a child is given a homework assignment and fails to complete the assignment by the given due date the student will be “ZAPPED”. The student will be given a ZAP form to take home along with the incomplete assignment.
  • This gives students one last chance to complete the assignment before actually being ZAPPED. The student is to:
    • Complete the assignment
    • Have their parent/guardian sign the ZAP form
    • Return both the assignment and ZAP form to the ZAP basket in the main office BEFORE 8:00 A.M. the next day.
zap continued
ZAP continued
  • If ANY of the above do not happen, the student will receive a pass to their T2R class and will report to the cafeteria where they will complete the assignment and then read their T2R book silently. If the assignment is not completed at the end of the hour, they will take it home and turn it in to the ZAP basket the next morning, or they will be ZAPPED once again.
  • If a child continues to be ZAPPED:
    • Parent/Guardian will be contacted
    • Parent/Guardian will meet with administration
    • Detentions and/or ISS will be assigned
