  • Detention Hours: Last year SFHS started calculating detention hours for students. For every tardy there will be 15 minutes added to students detention hours, 30 minutes for a late tardy, 60 minutes for an unexcused absence, and 90 minutes for a sluff. We are still encouraging students who are sick to stay home, but please call attendance at 801.798.4060 or email shanda.jensen@nebo.edu to excuse the absence. The detention report will be ran Friday afternoon so we encourage you to excuse your student before then. If students go above 3 hours of detention they will not be able to participate in extracurricular activities. If they are below 3 hours they do not need to serve detention. Students should serve detention with their teachers before or after school. Students can also serve detention during lunch in Mrs. Applegate's room (25).
  • Please check your email weekly to get updates on your students detention hours. If you do not receive an email then your student currently has zero hours
