Policies and Procedures
To ensure that all students are dressed for academic success.
Students are required to wear an HPA approved uniform at all times (please refer to the uniform policy located in the family handbook and/or our website if needed). If a student is not in an approved school uniform, any of the following consequences may take place:
- Documented warning
- Parent notified to bring additional clothing
- Wednesday Detention
- In school suspension
To consistently keep a focus on learning with minimal disruptions and distractions.
Students are required to turn in all electronic devices to their homeroom teacher. At the end of the school day, students will be allowed to pick up their electronics. Students are not to keep cell phones, ipods, video games, or any other electronic device in their lockers, backpacks, or anywhere else. More importantly, we encourage students to leave electronics at home whenever possible. HPA is not responsible if an item is lost or stolen. If a student does not follow the electronics policy, any of the following may take place:
- Device taken away for remainder of day
- Device needing to be picked up by parent from office
- Device being confiscated for remainder of school year
To ensure all students are accountable for learning and to minimize classroom distractions.
Students are required to attend all of their scheduled classes and to arrive on time. When students will not be in attendance, please contact the HPA attendance line at (303) 217-5152. Attendance and tardies are monitored on a daily basis. In middle school, tardies will be tallied each period. This means that it is possible for a student to accrue more than one tardy during the course of the school day depending on the number of periods (classes) that he/she is late for. Parents will be notified when absences and/or tardies are excessive. If improvements are
not made, the local child services department may be contacted.
Student Aggression Policy
To promote a safe and welcoming learning environment where students’ focus is on learning.
Students will refrain from physical and/or verbal aggression. Aggression of any type creates a culture of harm that does not align with HPA’s guiding agreements.
An administrator will take into account age, degree of harm, surrounding circumstance, intent, recidivism, relationship between parties involved and context. Severity of incident will also be taken into account to determine discipline process. If students participate in any type of aggression (physical, verbal, social media, etc.) any of the following may take place to repair harm:
- Parent notification
- Documented restorative conversation
- Agreement plan
- In school suspension
- Out of school suspension
To promote a school environment in which students learn and practice healthy habits every day.
Students are required to follow the wellness guidelines that are laid out in our wellness policy (please refer to the policy located in the family handbook and/or on our website under the Wellness tab). To ensure that all students are following the guidelines, it is imperative that parents are on board as well. If and when there is a wellness violation, parents and students will be reminded of the policies that we have in place. Parents will be notified via phone or email the first time a violation occurs, and then if the issue continues, a mandatory parent meeting will be held.
