Policies » Discipline




Students are expected to demonstrate appropriate behavior at all times while at school and while attending school events.  The discipline code is established to provide students and parents with information on behavioral expectations and the potential consequences of violating this code.

Discipline will be handled in a progressive and confidential manner.  Inquiries concerning discipline should be directed to the assistant principal assigned to the student.  Administrators and counselors are available to assist students and parents with problems that might arise while at school.  Students are encouraged to seek out one of these individuals if they have concerns for their safety while at school.

Students should carry their school identification card with them at all times.  It must be presented when requested by a staff member.




For any offense depending on severity, the student may be assigned to detention, Saturday School, or suspended from school.  A parent conference may be held.  Repeated incidents may result in a referral to the G.G.U.S.D. discipline committee.




For possession and/or use of alcoholic beverages, controlled substances, including marijuana, cigarettes,
e-cigarettes, vapor pens and/or drug paraphernalia (including but not limited to pipes, rolling papers, lighters, and matches) at school or at school events, the student may be assigned to Saturday School, suspended, referred to counseling, and referred to the G.G.U.S.D. Discipline Committee. This rule applies to all students, staff, and visitors. 




All students are expected to be polite, courteous, and respectful to school staff at all times.  Defiance/disrespect will not be tolerated.  Students who are defiant or disrespectful may be assigned to Saturday School, suspended, or referred to the G.G.U.S.D. Discipline Committee. 




Students who fail to attend detention for any reason will be assigned to attend Saturday School.

Students who fail to attend Saturday School may be assigned to attend In-House Suspension or may be suspended from school.
