  • Notes should be given to Ms. Julie Mercado (Educational Para).



  • Students are expected to attend every class for which they are scheduled.
  • When students are present in school but absent from class they are considered “cutting” and will serve detention.  Continued offenses may lead to further discipline.
  • Cuts result in a phone call home and after-school detention.
  • The third cut will result in penalties up to and including suspension.    



  • Students are expected to arrive at school at least 15 minutes before their first period begins.  It is wise to arrive by 7:45 a.m.
  • Students who arrive after 9:00 am will not be allowed to visit their locker and will store their belongings in the first floor closet.
  • Detention for lateness will be given on the 1st of each month as follows for the previous month:
      • 5-9 times late = 45 minutes
      • 10-14 times late = 1.5 hours
      • 15-19 times late = 2 hours
      • 20+ times late = 2.5 hours

Detention is held daily in the library from 7:00 am to 7:55 am, Tuesday from 2:45 pm to 4:30 pm (if you have a 9th period class, you will need to arrive at 3:16 pm) Wednesday from 2:45 pm to 4:30 pm and Fridays from 2:45 pm to 4:00 pm.  

  • Frequent lateness will result in a Student-Parent conference with Ms. Rios. 



  • Qualifying students will be issued MetroCards in September and February.
  • If students lose a metro card they must go to Ms. Ríos’ office (Rm 210B) to request a replacement MetroCard during their lunch period or at the end of the day.
  • It is the students’ responsibility to pick up their replacement MetroCard from Ms. Ríos.



  • Students who must leave the building due to illness or for an appointment must be picked up by a parent or other adult that is listed on the emergency blue card. Only students 18 years and older can leave on their own with verbal consent from a parent/guardian.
