Dear Parents of Li Harris

Notice of Alternative Hours:

I am sorry to report my decision to impose a Notice of Alternative Hours on Li Harris for a period of 1 day. This means that normal school times are suspended for him and instead he should be brought to school on Wednesday 14thMarch 2007 at 2.55 p.m. He will be educated until 5.00pm when he should be collected. For the remainder of the day he is your responsibility and not the school’s. When Li returns home he will have two hours of homework and you are asked to supervise this work to ensure that it is completed and returned to school the following day. The reasons for this decision are as follows:-

  • Li was very rude and abusive to one of our Midday Meals Supervisors.

Alternative Hours are in force for 1 day and Li should return to school at the usual time on Thursday 15th March. You are invited to sit in on the school-based sessions if you wish. Because this is not an exclusion, attendance at school is required under the Education (School Attendance Order) Regulations 1995 and non-attendance may be reported to the Educational Welfare Officer. The Department of Education and Skills has told us that we may ask your permission to visit your home during the homework time to check on arrangements. A record has been made of this incident and will be taken into consideration in the case of further unacceptable behaviour. Yours sincerely Miss S Ward Deputy Head Teacher
