  • explain to their parents/guardians the truth why they were given such and have them sign below the slip, and 
  • return this signed violation slip to the Prefect for Discipline two (2) school days after receipt of such slip. Failure to do the above instructions would result in a further issuance of violations slips. Forging of parent’s or guardian’s signature is a disciplinary infraction which means grave sanctions.

The students are asked to make a narrative report of the incident or violation committed.

A one-on-one investigation shall be conducted after doing the narrative report; this would help the OSA officer to see the validity of the written report.

Sanctions or administrative penalties shall be recommended by the (OSA officer) Prefect of Students and subject for approval of the principal.
