In order to provide our students with a safe learning environment, Branford High School will be implementing the following procedures effective immediately:
1. Students must be in the classroom when the tardy bell rings.
2. Teachers will lock the doors at the sound of the tardy bell. Any student in the hall will report to the couches outside of the office.
3. Make up work will be adhered to as defined in the Student Handbook; 3 tardies will result in an unexcused absence.
4. Students will be accepted into the classroom with an official pass.
Cell phones/electronic devices:
