After School Study Hall
The PTO continues to sponsor AFTER SCHOOL STUDY HALL on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoons immediately after school. Students can use this time to study independently, do research projects, or receive specific help from teachers. Teachers can also request students stay due to Clay’s NO-ZERO Policy.
*THE STUDY HALL TAKES PLACE ON TUESDAY, WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY FROM 3:15-4:10 P.M.
*STUDENTS WANTING TO ATTEND THE AFTER-SCHOOL STUDY HALL WILL NEED TO ASK A TEACHER TO SIGN THEM UP AND HAVE COMMUNICATED WITH THEIR PARENT(S) TO CONFIRM.
*EACH EVENING THE AFTER SCHOOL STUDY HALL WILL BE LIMITED TO THE FIRST 10 STUDENTS WHO NEED ASSISTANCE ON MATH/SCIENCE; THE FIRST 10 STUDENTS WHO NEED ASSISTANCE FOR LANGUAGE ARTS/SOCIAL STUDIES; AND THE FIRST 10 STUDENTS WHO NEED ACCESS TO THE COMPUTER LAB. DURING THE FINAL TWO WEEKS OF EACH QUARTER ALL OF THE COMPUTERS IN THE MEDIA CENTER WILL BE AVAILABLE UP TO A MAXIMUM OF 30 STUDENTS. IN ADDITION, THERE WILL BE ROOM FOR UP TO 20 STUDENTS EACH EVENING WHO ARE THERE BECAUSE OF A “NO-ZERO” PROCEDURE IN PLACE BY A TEACHER OR WHO JUST NEED A QUIET PLACE TO STUDY.
*STUDENTS MUST STAY IN THE AFTER SCHOOL STUDY HALL UNLESS THEY HAVE A COMMITMENT WITH ANOTHER SCHOOL EVENT AND THAT TEACHER/COACH HAS ASKED THEM TO BE RELEASED EARLY. BECAUSE STUDENTS ARE TAKING A SLOT WE WOULD EXPECT THEM TO STAY UNTIL 4:05 OTHERWISE.
*STUDENTS WHO DO NOT HAVE A RIDE AT SCHOOL AT 4:10 P.M. WILL BE REQUIRED TO RIDE THE LATE BUS HOME.
Study Hall is not detention and should not be viewed as punitive in nature. It is simply a way for students to find outside help with their studies. Students do have to sign up by lunch on the day for which they want to attend; then after packing their backpack, simply go to the Media Center after school. They will sign in there.
There is a Late Bus available to students that stay for study hall or any after school club. Students need to get a bus pass from the "Supervising" teacher. The bus leaves at approximately 4:20pm and makes stops depending on the rider's address. Please keep in mind most students will most likely not be dropped off directly at their address or at their normal bus stop.
