Students are required to attend school every day. Once a student arrives on campus, the student may not leave campus without the written permission of parent or administrator. Students must follow scheduled class locations. If a student is absent, the student’s parent/guardian should call attendance to report the absence. Upon the student’s return to school, a note written by the parent/guardian is required. The note must include the student’s full legal name, reason for the absence, and the date(s) of the absence and signed by parent/guardian. The note must be turned into the front office. Please note that absences are excused for the following reasons only: illness, hospitalization, death in the family, court appearances, school-sanctioned activities, and religious reasons.
Students are expected to arrive at school on time. All students are required to be at their first period class and prepared to work when the bell rings. Students who arrive after 9:10 report directly to their first period class. First period teachers will record the tardy in FOCUS. Tardiness to Class – Students are to be physically in the classroom to which they are assigned at the appropriate time. Tardies, being out of area, and skipping class are all subject to disciplinary actions in a progressive manner. After campus wide warnings are given, students tardy to class will receive consequences.
No student will be allowed to withdraw from school without written permission from his/her parent or guardian. If you must withdraw from school, parent/guardian is asked to notify the school office several days before they plan to withdraw. All textbooks and library books must be returned or paid for if lost at the time of withdrawal.
IMS students enjoy the benefits of our school wide PBIS Program! In an effort to reward “Positive Behavior”, a token economy has been established in the form of Thunderbucks. These tokens/bucks may be redeemed for a variety of options, which include: 1 Thunderbuck-Sitting with a friend at lunch 3 Thunderbucks-buying a bracelet that allows a student to wear a t-shirt on Fridays (or the last day of the week).
MAKE UP WORK
Students who are absent from school for any reason, excused or unexcused, are responsible for all assigned work and will be allowed such a period of time equal to the number of days absent to complete the work (i.e. If a student is absent 2 school days, he/she will have 2 school days to make up missed work). Failure to complete this work within the allotted time will result in a zero. These grades will be used in determining final grades. Please speak to school Principal for situations with extenuating circumstances.
