Discipline Office Goal--Reduce Tardiness and Truancy
Multiple research studies have shown that there is a strong correlation between school attendance and academic achievement. It is our goal to decrease both truancy and tardiness. Students who are late to class or out of class without permission are missing an educational opportunity. Additionally, truant students are too often involved in undesired behavior. Teachers or an administrator will assign detention to students who are tardy to class, including to period one, which is a chronic problem. Campus Officers will be asking to see passes for all students out of class, and if they are found truant, it will be addressed with detention, phone calls home, Discipline Saturday School, and/or a CleanSWEEP citations. Please partner with us to improve school attendance. Talk with your students about the importance of being in class and arriving on time. Also, look at School Loop often to check your student's attendance. If you do not have your own School Loop account, please contact the guidance office for help setting one up. We would love for you to have one as staff emails parents throughout the year.
We are always happy to help and to answer questions. If there is something we can help with, please feel free to contact us through School Loop or by calling (909) 477-6900 and asking for the Discipline Office.
Dress Code & Electronics Basics
The Board of Trustees for the Chaffey Joint Union High School District has adopted a dress code policy with the intent that students must be dressed and groomed in an appropriate manner that will not interfere with or detract from the educational environment. The basics of that policy are listed below. For more detailed information on the dress code, please refer to the Los Osos High School 2015-2016 Parent Student Handbook (available on the Los Osos School Loop Discipline page--under administration).
- Hats: School approved unaltered baseball style hats, visors, and knit hats in school colors with the official school logo are allowed and should be worn only outdoors with the visor facing forward. No other head coverings are allowed.
- Shoes: Shoes must be worn at all times. Steel-toed shoes, slippers, and any shoe with rolling devices are not allowed.
- Clothing: Clothing that is determined by administration and/or law enforcement agencies to promote a gang life style is not allowed. Clothing that advertises, promotes, or suggests drugs, alcohol, tobacco, weapons, sexuality, obscenity, graffiti, or antisocial behavior is not allowed. Revealing, overly tight, or transparent clothing is not allowed. Straps must be 2" minimum. Midriffs must be covered at all times. Shorts must completely cover the posterior at all times. Sleepwear is not allowed. Undergarments must not be displayed.
The School Board allows students to posses and use electronic communication devices on campus; however, it does not assume liability if such devices are damaged, lost, or stolen. Electronic devices must be completely powered off during class time (bell to bell) unless the teacher or an administrator directs students otherwise. This includes outdoor classes, assemblies, and school activities. Music listening devices and speakers should not be brought on campus. For more detailed information on electronics, check the Los Osos High School 2015-2016 Parent Student Handbook (available on the Los Osos School Loop Discipline page--under administration).
Remember students, when you are wearing earbuds/headphones, one ear must be left open for safety!
Cyberbullying, inappropriate texting, and posting on social media have become a large and difficult problem at schools everywhere. Be proactive--check your student's phone and social media regularly, and talk to them about using electronics responsibly. They'll thank you for it later.
Help Us Put a Stop to Bullying!
Bullying continues to be a problem in our society, including high schools. Students should tell a counselor, teacher, campus officer, or the discipline office if they are being bullied or see someone being bullied. The websites below have important, helpful information. Additionally, you can find other helpful anti-bullying documents in the locker on this webpage.
