Students assigned an out-of-school suspension are expected to spend time away from school in a parent-supervised setting. Students are not allowed to attend classes, interact with peers, or be involved in any after-school events. A student who is on suspension will have an opportunity to make up work missed while on suspension. Any exception to this will be made by the high school principal and/or head of school. Suspensions from SSIS are given as a reflection period, during which students have time to consider whether they wish to continue at SSIS and how they can modify their behavior to do so.
A first out-of-school suspension will generally be for one or two days, while a second suspension may be three, up to a maximum of ten days. All incidents resulting in an out-of-school suspension will be documented and become part of the student’s school record.
