        ******************
Gamble Rogers is implementing a new policy for students who arrive tardy to school (this means checking in after 7:50 AM) multiple times during a Quarter. Any student who accumulates more that 5 Unexcused Tardies during a Quarter will serve Lunch Dentention for each tardy thereafter during that Quarter.

Detentions will either be served in the In-School Suspension room or in the Overflow room of the cafeteria under the supervision of our school’s Resource Officer, Deputy Harrell.

               *******************         

This year through a new app called Remind 101
I will be sending text updates to our community about important class information.
