JUG When & Where

JUG/Sanction Detention Formats


Procedural Jug/Lunch Jug: Lunch JUG begins with the student checking in with the Jug supervisor in the Student Center at the start of the lunch period. Students serving lunch JUG will be given time to eat their lunch at the Deans’ Table. JUG students will assist the Deans and custodians in student center cleanup for the lunch period. Lunch Jug must be completed at the lunch immediately following the offense. Failure to complete a Procedural Jug results in a Behavioral Jug.

Behavioral Jug/After School Jug: JUG begins ten minutes after the last scheduled class period or assembly on Tuesday- Friday.  JUG will last 30 minutes. After school Jug must be completed on the day of, or the next day after the offense. Failure to complete a Behavioral Jug results in a Sanction.  Please check in with the Dean of Students immediately after school on the day of your assigned Jug.

Sanction: Sanction is a two-hour offense arranged with the Dean of Students. If a student is late or performs his/her work poorly, additional Sanctions may be issued. Given the serious nature of Sanction, it is assigned only by an administrator. A sanction is scheduled at the convenience of the school and takes precedence over any personal plans a student or the family may have made. Accumulation or assignment of three or more sanctions in any given semester may require a conference of administrators and Parents / Guardians which may include placing the student on a behavioral contract. Upon breach of a behavioral contract the Deans may recommend the Student Governing Board to review the student’s continued enrollment status. Failure to complete a Sanction means the student is liable for suspension. A student may not return to school without a parent/guardian meeting if a sanction is missed.

If a student is late to any JUG / Sanction or performs his/her work poorly, additional JUG / Sanction may be issued. The following lists are NOT exhaustive. School Administrators reserve the right to adapt these standards in light of the severity, consequences, etc. of situations.
