Where Excellence is the Standard - Week of March 21, 2022

Randle High School Updates

Dear Lions Community


Welcome back! I hope everyone was able to enjoy their Spring Break! Now that we are beginning the final three weeks of the 5th grading period I wanted to review a few items. First I would like discus our campus Tardy Policy. Listed are the consequences for excessive tardies at Randle High School:

  • 0-4 No Penalty Warning
  • 5-8 Saturday Detention (Failure to attend will result in ISS). Receiving ISS will negatively affect spring exemptions.
  • 9 - 11 ISS 3 Days (Loss of exemptions) - Administrator parent phone conference
  • 12 or more tardies may result in out of school suspension.

Please stress the importance of being punctual. There is a strong correlation between excessive tardies and failing grades.


Secondly, I would like too review our cell phone policy/expectations.

  • Phones must be put away at ALL TIMES during instructional time, unless there is an instructional purpose GIVEN by the teacher.
  • Refusal to follow this expectation will result in a discipline referral. (NOTE: Phones are allowable before 8:15 AM, during the student's 30-minute lunch time, and after 3:40 PM.)
  • Ignoring a teacher or staff member when they ask that to put away your cell phone will result in a discipline referral.
  • Instigating, participating, or video recording any type of altercation, harassing/bullying, or any other student code of conduct offenses with your cell phone will result in a discipline referral and possible alternative school placement.

Please remind students of this expectation.


Finally, all students should have a planner with them at all times. This is a way to track grades, home work, and due dates. It is also their hall pass.

  • All students must have their planner hall pass signed by a teacher to be out of their scheduled class. Students without a pass will receive a discipline referral.
  • If students need a replacement they may visit the registrar's office. They are $5.

Cell Phone Policy

We take your child’s education seriously. As we prepare for the upcoming STAAR End-of -Course exams, we wanted to place an importance on minimizing distractions. Beginning Monday, March 7, 2022, we are instituting a no cell phone policy during class.

Students are allowed to bring cell phones to school and are allowed to use them before school, during lunch, and after school. Phones should not be visible and in use between passing periods or during class, unless students are provided permission by the teacher. Cell phones have become a distraction.

For clarification, cell phones can be in the student's possession, but the phone must be put away during the instruction. If a student has their cell phone visible, without teacher/staff member permission, they will be asked to give their cell phone to the teacher/staff member. They will receive their cell phone at the end of the day from the front office. The following information will be posted in every classroom:

  • Phones must be put away at ALL TIMES during instructional time, unless there is an instructional purpose GIVEN by the teacher. If you refuse to follow this expectation, it will result in a discipline referral. (NOTE: Phones are allowable before 8:15 AM, during the student's 30-minute lunch time, and after 3:40 PM.)
  • Ignoring a teacher or staff member when they ask that to put away your cell phone will result in a discipline referral.
  • All students must have their planner hall pass signed by a teacher to be out of their scheduled class. Students without a pass will receive a discipline referral.
  • Instigating, participating, or video recording any type of altercation, harassing/bullying, or any other student code of conduct offenses with your cell phone will result in a discipline referral and possible alternative school placement.

Please know that educating our Randle High School students is our number one priority, and we place a precedence on having a safe and secure school. We appreciate your support and partnership in maintaining an environment and culture where learning is the focus.
