To my Highlander Family:

 

I am writing this letter to express my sincerest gratitude as I say good bye. As many of you already know, I’ll be leaving my position as Director of Discipline and Attendance to take a position as an Assistant Principal in Northern California. My last official day is December 15, however if you are reading this, I am probably already gone (I am not a fan of saying goodbye). Since 2005, I’ve called this place my second home and to be honest I am very happy with the experience that I gained from many of my past and present colleagues.

 

While I’m excited about the new opportunity, there is also a big part of me that is sad to be saying goodbye to some amazing co-workers and supervisors. I can’t tell you how much I’ve enjoyed our time working together and how much I value the love and friendship you’ve shown me over the past years. We’ve held grudges with one another, broke bread with each other and just as families do, we got passed all of the nonsense and put kids first. 

 

To my students and parents

 

It has been an extreme honor to serve you!!!!You are the reason that I have showed up day in and day out with a smile on my face and love in my heart. I thank all of my past and present parents and students for allowing me to be a part of your journey. As we move forward in this thing called life, always remember that the love was and is real and we will always only be a communication call away.

 

To my Black Student Union Students (Past and Present)

 

BRAVO for all that we have accomplished together!!!!! Last year was a very sentimental year for me and I am overwhelmed with joy from the love that was given and received. As I have often told you, this is just part of our journey and wherever we go in life, we take our experiences with us so we will never be far apart. 

 

I was going to write a longer letter, but this is actually harder than I thought, so instead of saying good bye, I will just say

 

See you soon

Upland High School follows progressive steps in assigning disciplinary consequences for rule violations.  Our goal is not to punish, but to change negative behavior.  Students are expected to follow all rules and policies outlined in the California State Education Code, the UUSD Parent and Student Handbook and the Upland High School Policy Pages.  These policy pages are the first step in this process and constitute your warnings.

Major infractions may result in immediate removal from Upland High School on the first offense.

Any violation of school or district policy may result in a disciplinary referral.  If a student accumulates five referrals during the school year, he/she may be placed on probationary status. Probationary status is from quarter to quarter. Each quarter ends as follows:  October 20 (1st), December 21 (2nd), March 23 (3rd) and June 7 (last)October 21 (1st)

Defiance of Authority                   Disruption                         Truancy

Progressive Discipline Plan

The purpose of progressive discipline at Upland High School is to teach students appropriate behaviors so that they may be successful in the learning environment. Implementing specific behavioral interventions with the incorporation of our Positive Behavior Support (PBS), while working with parents as partners in the process is critical in supporting student responsibility and success.

Teachers should maintain accurate documentation as student disciplinary concerns arise.

Level 1: Warning

Warnings are given by the teacher as a means of redirecting inappropriate student behavior and directly teaching behavior expectations.

Level 1 warnings are classroom level interventions.

Level 2: Warning with Level 2 Intervention

Warning given by teacher and documented.

Student issued Level 2 Intervention such as detention.

Phone call made to parent and documented.

Level 2 interventions are classroom-based with documentation and mandatory parent contact.

Level 3: Referral with Documentation

Teacher sends student to Discipline Director with completed referral form e-mailed or hand delivered.

Parent phone call by teacher and discipline office documented.

Consequences will begin with SS/detention and may progressively escalate for subsequent referrals.
