- If I have to issue a detention of any kind, it will be held after school in Room 15 from 2:25p.m.- 2:50p.m. Students must have detention slip signed by parent or guardian to serve. If not signed or served within 48 hours of issuance, it is sent to discipline where it becomes a disciplinary action. Students must have a ride ready to pick them up within 15 minutes of an event ending or it becomes an automatic disciplinary action PER THE PRINCIPAL. If a student is walking home or going to the Rosedale library or elsewhere, please indicate that on the detention at the bottom.
