  • Detention Procedure Ms. Mercer Fifth Grade Nicholas Elementary
  • Why do we have detention?
    • We need to follow our class and school rules for learning to take place.
    • We need to have consequences when rules are broken.
    • If someone is stopping learning, they may need to leave the class so that others can learn.
  • What is detention?
    • Time out from regular activities.
    • A consequence for breaking a rule.
    • A time to reflect on behavior.
  • When and where is detention?
    • During recess:
      • On the bench by the cafeteria during a.m. recess;
      • In the detention class during lunch.
    • During class:
      • In a buddy classroom;
      • In the opportunity room.
  • What is the procedure?
    • The teacher will send you to the detention. You will be told where to go, how long to stay, and what detention form to take.
    • If you have unfinished work, or are in the middle of doing classwork, bring it with you to finish.
