AMS has identified and communicated some behaviors that will simply not be tolerated on our campus. Any adult in the building can issue an automatic detention for the listed behaviors. If a student is in violation of any of the listed behaviors, the adult witnessing the infraction contacts the parent by phone and turns the form into the office for a day/time for the detention to be assigned. Phrases on the form listed in () are simply some of the examples of that infraction, but discretion on the part of the adult is permitted. (ex. earbuds covers headphones, beats, bluetooths, etc.)
Detention is from 4:05 p.m.-5:00 P.M. Failure to attend a detention will result in a Thursday Class (4:05 p.m.-6:00 p.m.). Failure to serve a Thursday Class will result in assigned ISS.
All students are expected to attend school regularly and be on time to classes. Students have 4 minutes to enter the classroom before the tardy bell sounds to be on time. At the middle schools, tardies are described as being late to class, being admitted after school begins, or returning to class with no admission permit. Each school has its own tardy policy.
Ready Bell Tardy - Students have 1 minute, after the tardy bell, to be seated and prepared for class (writing TALE, materials ready to learn,etc.) If they are not meeting that expectation, a tardy is documented in eSchool.
Out of designated area is defined as not being in your assigned area for 1-30 minutes without a pass or an adult communicated purpose. Truancy is defined as (1) any unexcused absence when students are under Humble ISD jurisdiction, (2) any unexcused absence when students are under the supervision of parents, and (3) leaving school grounds or school-sponsored events without permission
The district’s dress code is established to teach grooming and hygiene, prevent disruption, and minimize safety hazards. Students and parents may determine a student’s personal dress and grooming standards, provided that they comply with district and campus expectations.
The administration and faculty shall have the right to appraise any current fashion or fad to determine whether it is appropriate or inappropriate for school wear.
- Any form of dress or grooming that attracts undue attention, disrupts school, is considered gang related, or detracts from the learning process is not acceptable.
- Garments or accessories with inappropriate decorations, advertisements, threatening manner or menacing manner are prohibited.
- UPDATED August 4, 2018! Clothing designed with rips or holes is prohibited. [a. Pants that have holes or roles revealing skin will not be allowed. A sizable number of students did not demonstrate discernment in location of these rips, nor precautions to cover the rips, leading to this dress code revision. b. Distressed jeans are defined as jeans with denim material distressed to the point that denim threads span a portion of the denim material, but no skin is visible. These are allowable as long as students do not tear or cut the threads revealing skin.]
