For the fall semester, the last day a student may drop a course is October 18th. For the spring semester, it is March 7th. In some cases, a guidance counselor and teacher will encourage a student to stay in a course and to keep trying to pass it. In these cases, when it does not work out even though the student has tried, a course may be dropped after the deadline. In all other situations, students must have the Principal's permission to drop a course.
Only parents can excuse their children from school early. The following procedures have been established:
The Saugerties Central School District does not discriminate on the basis of age, race, color, religion, creed, national origin, marital status, veteran status, gender or disability in its educational programs, activities and employment practices. Inquiries regarding this policy of equal opportunity should be referred to Mr. Larry Mautone, Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction, Saugerties Central Schools, Call Box A, Saugerties, New York 12477. Mr. Mautone is also the school district's Title IX Officer, and can be contacted at 247-6503.
Students are encouraged to stay after school from 2:15 to 3:00 PM for academic help from teachers, to participate in club and intramural activities or to study and use the computer lab or library. Transportation is provided.
As required by law, twelve fire drills are conducted during the school year. We will conduct 8 fire drills and 4 lockdown drills. These drills are practice for actual emergencies and must be conducted in the most realistic manner possible. When the emergency alarm sounds, everyone must evacuate the building. Students must follow the instruction of their teacher and exit according to the plan posted in the classroom. If not in a class when the alarm is activated, students are to leave the building at the nearest exit. A quiet evacuation, allowing emergency instructions to be heard, will insure everyone's safety.
The minimum passing grade is 65%. Final averages are computed by averaging the quarterly grades (80%) and the final exam (20%). A grade of 50 is the minimum grade for the first half of all courses for the 9th grade and the 1st quarter for grades 10-12. Afterwards, teachers may assign the actual grade even if it is below 50. Beginning the Summer of 2003, the student's regular school average will be 20% of the final Summer School grade.
To make an honor roll, a student must pass all subjects and earn the following minimum grade when all classes which meet five times per week are averaged.
Students who show an incomplete grade (INC.) or who do not have a grade in a subject cannot be considered for an honor roll.
Students who become ill during the school day should report to the school nurse. Unless it is an emergency, always request a pass from your teacher before going to the nurse. The nurse will evaluate your ability to stay in school and contact a parent if it is necessary to send a student home.
Students are expected to be in their homeroom by 7:45 AM. Homeroom, while not an academic class, is still important. It is where the Pledge of Allegiance is recited, announcements are heard, attendance is taken and notices are distributed.
The Saugerties Central School system carries student accident insurance. Student personal insurance is primary and school insurance provides secondary coverage on a scheduled basis. All pupil accidents and injuries should be reported immediately to the school nurse or coach.
Twelfth grade students who drive or walk to school and have no classes first period may apply for late entry privilege. Application and approval will be made through the senior high counseling center.
Students are responsible for keeping their lockers secure. Saugerties High School does not assume responsibility for lost or stolen property. While a student is assigned exclusive use of a locker, vis a vis other students, school authorities may open lockers at any time. Lockers remain the exclusive property of the school and students have no expectation of privacy with respect to their lockers.
Election to the National Honor Society is based on scholarship, service, leadership and character. To be eligible scholastically, one must have earned on average of at least 90% on the basis of two and a half years of work. Members engage in tutoring, the promotion of scholarship and other activities of benefit to the school and community.
Students may not sit for a Regents exam until they have completed an appropriate course of study unless they have received permission to challenge a course from the Principal. Please see your Guidance Counselor for details.
In the event hazardous weather conditions necessitate the closing of school or a delay in opening of schools for the day, the following will announce these facts.
The Student Council acts as liaison to the school administration on behalf of the students, organizes and sponsors events on behalf of the high school student body, and helps individuals and school groups as appropriate.
Student on-campus parking will be operated under the rules established by the High School Administration. A student who is continually late to school may lose his or her parking privileges. Applications for parking will be made through the Main Office.
Students under the age of 18 are required by NYS to obtain working papers. Applications & instructions can be obtained in either the Junior or Senior High Office.
