Student Expectations at Delta High School

From Mrs. Prieto Chávez, Principal


ATTENDANCE - Attend all Classes

Attendance to all classes is important. This includes Advisement and Friday classes. If you have excessive absences on Fridays, you risk losing 10 units for two classes. Attendance at a continuation high school (at Delta) is just as important as passing all your classes. Students must maintain 85% attendance or higher in the AM session, otherwise, students will be switched to PM session.

Be on Time to All Classes - You need to be on time to all your classes including Advisement. Three tardies equal one absence.

School Attendance Review Board (SARB)Students with severe attendance problems will be referred to SARB. Some of the consequences include a fine ($100.00 or more), community service, juvenile hall, probation, and/or suspension or revocation of driver’s license. Some Delta students have already been referred to SARB.

Re-Admit Policy - If you are absent, you must bring a written note from your parent/guardian to your advisor within two days of the absence. Phone calls to clear absences will not be accepted, only written notes. Absences not excused within two days will become a “cut” (an unexcused absence). The note must include: full name of the student, six digit ID number, date of the absence, reason for the absence, and parent/guardian signature.

Check Sheets – All students must carry their Check Sheets to all classes, every day. Check Sheets will be used as passes. You must use your Check Sheet as a pass to go to another classroom, the restroom, or office area. Teacher Assistants (TA’s) must also have a pass at all times.

Student IDs – All students must carry their ID card. You especially need your ID card to board and exit the school bus.

Restroom – The restroom is to be used during passing periods. The restroom is not a place to linger.

Discipline – If you break rules during school hours or on the way to school or on the way home, you’ll be subject to disciplinary consequences.

Dress Code – Dress is to be neat, clean, and non-disruptive. No spaghetti straps, no showing midriff, no attire with gang symbols, drugs, alcohol, profanity or inappropriate pictures/symbols.

Delta Hats – Students may only wear Delta hats and hats with military logos. No hats with any sports team or other logos may be worn.  Students may also wear different colored beanies with no logos or pictures.  Any other head gear, such as animal head gear must be pre-approved by the principal. Delta hats are $20.00 each.

Staff Lounge – The Staff Lounge is off limits to students. Students are only allowed in the Staff Workroom with permission.

Surrounding Areas – The parks in the surrounding areas are off-limits to students. These are private properties. No student parking is allowed past the block concrete wall on Benji Lane.

Check-Out – If you need to check-out during the day, you must sign out at the office and have parent/guardian permission or the permission of the Principal if you are 18 years old.
