PLEASE NOTE:  The infractions and consequences listed in the Student Handbook and/or the Minisink Valley Code of Conduct are guidelines for the determination of each case by the administration.  All relevant factors are to be taken into consideration in determining an appropriate consequence or penalty.  Therefore, the administration, when supported by relevant facts, reserves the right to modify the consequence or penalty for the infraction. Infractions are documented using a disciplinary referral form and/or a bus conduct referral form which the student is expected to give to their parent or guardian.  This is in addition to written notification to the parent/guardian regarding out-of-school suspension. 

 

It is also important to note that the Middle School employs a progressive model of discipline.  This means a consequence may reflect the number and severity of the infraction and/or any previous infractions.
