Welcome to the In School Suspension Class Room (ISS).

Students are assigned to ISS when they have made poor choices in behavior.  The purpose is to instill some discipline without significant damage to the educational process.  Other options are Out of School (OSS) assignment or Alternative School (AEP) assignment.  Students are assigned to ISS by one of the school principals. The principals are Mr. Janacek (x1300), Mr. Abbe (10th & 12th x1304), or Mr. Bremer (9th & 11th x1303).

I will be happy to assist you any way I can, but, in most cases, will refer you to one of the principals listed above as they have the final word over ALL ISS issues. smiley
