At the end of the third marking period, every student’s grades will be reviewed. Any student with an average grade for the first three marking periods that is below a 60% in two or more classes will have a letter sent home. This letter is to inform the students and parents of the failing grades, as well as to serve as notice that if the student does not improve to a non-failing status by the mid-quarter date of the fourth marking period, they will be ineligible for the Williamsburg trip. Students who do not receive a letter at the end of the third marking period could still be ineligible for the trip if his/her grades drop during the second semester to a failing status in two or more subjects.
During the length of the trip all school rules apply. School policy P6153.1 of the Student Handbook addresses field trips. It states that a student will not be permitted to attend field trips for a period of 18 weeks when he/she accumulates 12 discipline points. The breakdown of disciplinary actions and points can be found in the student handbook.
During the course of the school year, student behavior will be reviewed on a regular basis by teachers, administrators and counselors. Any behavior determined to be disruptive, inappropriate or causing a serious problem may be considered sufficient reason for restriction from participation on the field trip. This can apply to a student who has yet to receive 12 discipline points, or a student whose 18-week disciplinary probation period has expired.
If for any reason, academic, disciplinary or personal, your child cannot attend the trip, your money will be refunded less any deposits already paid by the school.
