Rules & Conduct

The following rules have been developed to ensure an environment which is beneficial to learning. Disregard for these rules may result in disciplinary action. These rules apply to all school functions and district property.

Students are also expected to review and follow district policies, as outlined in the Student Rights & Responsibilities.


Class Arrival

  • Arrive to class before the bell rings
  • Be prepared with materials to work with
  • Present a pass when tardy or after having been absent
    • If a student is late to school or for any periods throughout the day, the student MUST go to the Attendance Office for a tardy pass.
  • A tardy is excused if the student arrives to class with a pass given by administrator, attendance office or another staff member.
    • Tardies/late arrivals to school are excused only if a parent/guardian has completed one of the following steps:
      • Called and left a voicemail on the CKHS 24 Hour Attendance Phone Line (360-662-2430).  Parent should leave the student’s name, reason for tardiness and approximate time of arrival
      • Emailed the Attendance Secretary Patty Aflleje at pattya@ckschools.org
      • Sent a note with the student
      • Stopped by the Attendance Office
  • An unexcused tardy in excess of 5 minutes is considered a truancy.

Cell Phones and Personal Listening Devices

The use of cell phones and other electronic devices require teacher permission in the classroom.  A student may use personal listening devices during non-instructional time, during his/her lunch period in the cafeteria, outside or approved alternate eating areas, and before and after school hours.  Listening devices require the use of head phones.

Dance Policy

Central Kitsap High School dances are for CKHS students and their guests.  To bring a guest, students must obtain a Guest Pass.  No guest may be 21 years of age or older.  No guest passes are issued the night of the dance.  No blank guest passes are issued.  Each pass is for a specific person.  Students are expected to follow the dance rules and procedures as follows:

  • All school rules apply
  • Administration must pre-approve all guests.
  • A sheriff will be on duty for the duration of the dance
  • Students and guests are admitted at the door and must present a Photo ID card.  (School, Military or driver’s license ID is accepted)
  • Students will not be allowed to re-enter after leaving the dance.
  • Central Kitsap High School dress code applies at all school-sponsored events.
  • Most  CKHS dances are formal/semi-formal events.  It is both the guest’s and the student’s responsibility to read and know the Dress Code for Dances.  These rules are posted and it is required that all students read and sign off that they have read the rules before purchasing a ticket.
  • Tickets will not be sold at the door or venue.
  • Personal bags or backpacks brought into a dance are subject to search.

Dance Etiquettte

Inappropriate suggestive dance movements will not be tolerated nor will freak dancing or grinding.  Staff will follow their best judgment on CKHS “Dance Code Etiquette” to determine inappropriate dancing.  A warning will be given if the dancing is perceived as inappropriate and may be followed by consequences if the warning is not adhered to.

Consequences

Two warnings will be given to students displaying inappropriate dancing.  If warned for a 3rd time, you and your guest may be removed from the dance and may be sent home.  Refunds will not be issued for students sent home.  This policy also applies to guests attending CKHS dances on a guest pass.  

 

Discipline

After School Detention: After School Detention is a consequence assigned to students for truancy, chronic tardy and other discipline as determined by an administrator.  After school detention takes place Monday – Wednesday 2:45pm – 4:00pm, and Thursday 1:15pm – 2:45pm.  Students must pre-arrange their own transportation home.

 In-School Suspension:  ISS is an alternative to out of school suspension.  Students in ISS will spend the school day with a supervisor and are not allowed to attend or participate in any extra-curricular activities after school.
