We hope that this letter is not the first time that you are hearing about this incident. We encourage students to speak with their parents prior to the letter being sent home. It is our hope that you will discuss the incident with your child. This can be a good opportunity for you to speak honestly with your child about your expectations and support them in making responsible choices.
We hope that you will speak with your child about the incident and encourage them to take responsibility for their actions. Your child will benefit from your support as they navigate the hearing process. We encourage you to let your child work through the process instead of offering to handle everything for them. The hearing process is designed to be educational in nature and we have found that going through the process is a learning experience for most students.
Students may have an advisor present during their hearing. Parents are able to serve as an advisor. The role of the advisor is to support the student; therefore, the student will be expected to answer all questions. If you would like more information about serving as an advisor to your student, please contact us.
