Leland and Gray maintains a closed campus. Eligible juniors and seniors have limited open-campus privileges. Once students arrive at school, they must stay on campus within these designated areas until classes begin: the front schoolyard up to the sidewalk and visible from the front office, front lobby, cafeteria, C-Level lobby, and the activity room. Areas off-limits include school parking lots, roads, tennis courts, lower basketball court, sports fields, the brook, the area on the other side of Dutton Gym, and anywhere off campus. A student found in an area off-limits faces the following consequences:
1st incident: Written warning on a behavior referral
2nd incident: 1 administrative detention
3rd and subsequent incidents: Additional detentions or suspensions at administrative discretion and meeting with the student, parent/guardian, and administration
1st incident: 2 administrative detentions
2nd incident: 4 administrative detentions and meeting with student, parent/guardian, and administration
3rd incident and subsequent incidents: 1 day of in-school suspension
Students who drive themselves during the school day without permission and those who drive other students during the school day face additional consequences.
For health reasons, animals cannot be brought to Leland and Gray by students or staff without permission in advance from the principal.
Leland and Gray maintains a safe environment for students and staff, yet is not a guarantor of student safety, especially when a student chooses harmful behaviors. When a student chooses to leave campus during the school day without permission, the administration follows school procedures to locate the student and return him/her to school. If parents/guardians are unable to be reached, the student’s emergency contacts will be called. The school resource officer will be informed.
Study hall is an opportunity for students to spend time during the school day ontheir class and independent assignments. Students work independently or in small groups in a quiet atmosphere. Students and staff may also organize to meet with others during study halls, such as but not limited to student council activities, assembly planning, boys and girls groups, and tutoring. Students must remain in study hall unless they present a pass to the supervising adult. Classroom attendance procedures and consequences apply to study hall.
Juniors and seniors who are assigned a study hall may have a free pass. Juniors include students who have earned at least 13 credits by August 2011. A student must have earned at least 19.5 credits to qualify as a senior. Students with a free pass must keep their voices low and prevent any distractions from student learning. They may be in the following locations:
In order to maintain a free pass, students must earn passing grades in every course on progress reports and report cards. Those who earn an incomplete are not eligible for a free pass the following marking period until the incomplete is made up and the student passes the class. Students who are failing a course will have their free passes revoked and be assigned study halls. Once a student is passing all courses at the time of the next progress report or report card, the free pass is reinstated. Students may have the free pass revoked as a result of behavioral referrals at administrative discretion. Each marking period, free passes are distributed to eligible students and revoked as needed by the campus supervisor.
The Class of 2011 successfully negotiated senior privileges for themselves and for subsequent seniors. A student must have earned at least 19.5 credits to qualify as a senior. These privileges include late arrival/early release, walking off campus, and for those who qualify, driving during lunch and free block time.
Late Arrival/Early Release: Seniors who do not have an A Block or D Block class do not need to be in school during this time. Students who don’t have A Block do not need to attend homeroom. The exception is that seniors must attend advisory or assemblies every Monday. Seniors must sign in and out of the office if they have late arrival or early release.
Walking Off Campus: Seniors will be permitted to walk or bike during their free pass time (a block without an assigned course) and lunchtime. Before leaving, they must stop in the office to sign out and write their destination. They must sign back in upon return. They are not permitted to walk where there is no sidewalk, such as on route 30. Students may walk or bike on the fitness trail to the Harmonyville Store, provided they dress properly, walk with a classmate, and return in time for class.
Driving: Seniors may be considered for earning the privilege of driving during free blocks and lunchtime, if they have a free pass, submit the required forms to the Secretary in the main office, receive the required driving stamp on their free pass, and abide by driving privilege rules.
The forms and paperwork include:
After the student provides this information to the main office, then an administrator or designee considers the application and determines whether or not to grant the privilege within 3 days. When a student is notified and s/he qualifies for driving privileges, s/he receives a "DP" designation on his/her free pass.
Seniors may only drive during a free block or lunchtime. Seniors must sign out and sign back in at the main office if driving during the school day. They cannot sign for classmates. Failure to complete this task will result in a first violation of driving privileges (see below). They may not transport other students, including other seniors.
