Cut-Off for Off-Campus Privileges for Upper School Students

Upper School students in good academic and disciplinary standing can depart campus during their lunch period. To be eligible, parental permission must be provided and students must sign a student agreement form. 
Lunch privileges are not automatic. Students not in good academic or disciplinary standing, or engaging in inappropriate behavior will have the privilege revoked indefinitely. Examples include, but are not limited to:

  • Borderline failing a class (anything below 60 is failing)
  • Arriving late to school
  • Not returning to school by 1:25 pm
  • Not signing out or signing back in from leaving the building
  • Cheating on a test or assignment
  • Not cleaning up after themselves in the gym or outside
  • Bringing food into the building or selling food to other students
To be eligibile, students must print out and complete the Lunch Privileges Sheet and return it to Ms. Vessio, Ms. Coratti, or Mr. Penoro. 
Privileges that involve leaving school require parental permission on the parental permission form. Parents must provide a hand signature on a physical copy of the permission form and place the form in a sealed envelope. E-Signatures will not be accepted.
Forms are due by 1:00 pm today. Late forms will not be accepted after the cut-off time and the next entry point for off-campus privileges will be at the start of second semester.

Off-Campus Lunch Privileges take effect Tuesday, November 8, 2022.
