Day School Rules

All participants in the Day School Program are required to sign an agreement stating that they will abide by the following rules:

I understand I was court ordered to attend the Day School Program as an alternative to going into full time juvenile detention. My probation officer or the court has decided what length of time I am to be in the program. If I am confused about why I am in Day School, or how long I am to be in Day School, I will contact my PO.

I understand I have to have any absences or tardies, verified by my parent, probation officer, counselor and/or a doctor. Absences not verified are considered unexcused and may result in consequences from my probation officer.   

I understand I am to dress appropriately for school attendance.  I understand I must sign the Day School Dress Standards form.

I understand I am expected to report for Day School at 8:45 a.m.  If I am late for school, I will not be allowed in for the day and must report to my probation counselor.   If my probation counselor is not available, I understand I must speak to another, available probation counselor.

I understand I will be asked to empty my pockets, be frisk searched and must walk through a metal detector before entering the Day School classroom.

I understand that all my personal property will be locked in lockers provided for the duration of the school day.

I understand that Day School hours are from 9:00 a.m. to 12:50 p.m.  I understand that I may not leave the Day School classroom unless going with my probation officer, with a counselor, or going to court. 

The Day School program provides lunch. No food or drinks may be brought in to Day School. There are no exceptions.

I understand I am expected to follow all directions and have appropriate behavior for school. Any inappropriate behavior on my part may result in consequences, and my behavior will be reported to my probation officer. Any threatening or assaultive behavior will result in being kicked out for the day, and possibly having charges filed against me. Consequences are given on an individual basis.

I understand that the Thurston County Juvenile Court and Day School Program has zero tolerance for any mental, physical or sexual abuse; gang related behavior; discrimination or harassment of any kind.  If anyone or anything makes me feel scared for my personal safety or well being, is treating me inappropriately, is bothering or harassing me, or is asking or demanding things of me that are sexual in nature, I am to tell staff immediately, or ask to see the Detention Manager. 

I understand that any disclosure of illegal activity will be reported to my probation officer and the Detention Manager.
