Tardy minutes piling up? There are options

As we reach the end of the school year, many students are facing a pile up of lunch D-hall and after school tardies. If these detentions are not served by the end of the year, students may face preventable consequences.

“Any time students have questions about their detention they [should] come to the lunch D-hall room,” Assistant Principal Victoria Youngblood-Baldwin said. “The teacher can check for any D-halls.”

Many students struggle with finding the time to make up their lunch detention which can lead to the minutes stacking up to an unmanageable amount. Lunch D-hall isn’t the only solution for making up these detention minutes.

“I work with the students,” Youngblood-Baldwin said. “I’m flexible and allow students to serve lunch or after school D-hall.”

If students are unable to serve lunch or after school detention, there is an alternative that could be more beneficial for the students.

Even if you might owe a lot of time, as long as you’re willing to put in the effort we’ll get you caught up.”

— Victoria Youngblood-Baldwin, assistant principal

“If students want to work with a teacher, I’m all for it,” Youngblood-Baldwin said. “We want you in class and we want you learning.”

To serve detention with a teacher, you must have the teacher email an AP. This email has to include the student’s name and the amount of time that was served. Doing this can be beneficial, especially for students who might have had to choose between tutoring or serving detention. Ignoring these detentions can lead to bigger consequences.

“Detentions can be increased in time,” Youngblood-Baldwin said. “Consequences can become more severe depending on the situation.”

With proper planning, these consequences can be avoided. It is important that students communicate with their APs and come up with a plan to reduce these detentions.

“Even if you might owe a lot of time, as long as you’re willing to put in the effort we’ll get you caught up,” Youngblood-Baldwin said.

Students have plenty of resources to help reduce their detentions; APs and teachers are all willing to work with students to help them get caught up. If you owe lunch D-hall, it is important that you use your resources to get caught up before the school year ends.
