Suspension is a temporary exclusion from school for a specified number of days. When an administrator suspends a student, every reasonable effort will be made to reach the parents via telephone. For every suspension, parents will receive a suspension letter. At the time of suspension the student will be given a copy of this letter. During a suspension, the student may not be in any ASD school building, on any school campus, or any school-sponsored program of activity. A student on suspension may not attend or participate in an athletic or activities events. Failure to adhere to these restrictions could result in a lengthening of the suspension.
