Gateway Attendace

Brianna Price, Olytimes writer

 The new principal would like the attendance rate to be at 95% and with all the new policies here at Gateway including when you have an attendance rate of 95% you can get prizes.

 

 If a student has 6+ tardies in a week they receive consequences such as a phone call home or a meeting with the dean. If you have 5+ unexcused absences during the whole quarter you receive home visits and lose privileges including not going to prom and a parking permit. 

 

 The principal and all these new rules are a significant change for our school since we didn’t have a principal last year and not many rules were enforced, it feels different to do certain things. With the silver, bronze, and gold rewards you can get stuff like candy, a tablet, AirPods, or a flatscreen TV. These are good rewards for just coming to class and getting a good education. Although I hope this bribes people to get to school and their class on time so they can get rewards and be acknowledged for doing the bare minimum.
