Hall Pass Process

At the start of the 2020-21 school year students will be given training on the use of CASTLE as it pertains to hall passes.  Requesting a hall pass is the students’ responsibility.  Students will be given three hall passes per day.  A student who leaves the classroom MUST:

·       Ask for teacher permission to leave classroom.

  • CASTLE out of class by logging into Castle on his/her Chromebook. The correct time the student left the classroom will appear on screen and begin a timer.
  • NOT use electronic devices (cell phones, IPods, headphones, games, etc.) at any time while out of classroom.

 A student who returns to the classroom MUST:

·       CASTLE in to class upon return so that Castle can stop timer and track student back in class.

Must have a signed pass with the date and time if returning from the Clinic, Main Office, Media Center, or another teacher.


·       Please refer to FOCUS discipline along with the district code of conduct for more detailed explanations of rules, rights and responsibilities. 

·       While Electronic devices are permitted in school, the use of such devices during instructional time is not allowed.  This extends to use of ETDs in hallways, offices, RR, and other areas as well.

·       For minor infractions (Level 1 and some Level 2), students will be tracked as minor infractions in FOCUS set up with different protocols for each offense and occurrence of offense.  Escalating up in each incident could result in a referral and discipline action being taken by administration.  Students that escalate to referral status will adhere to district code of conduct guidelines.
