Sweep Program

MHS Sweep Program

 Dear Mesquite High School Parents/Guardians and Students:


IN 2015, we implemented our Sweep program and have had the opportunity to evaluate its effectiveness throughout the last two school years. As we had anticipated, we have seen a significant decrease, as much as 80%, in the number of students arriving late to school.  As this is only a first hour program, we want to remind you that we will continue the program for the 2017 - 18 school year.

In effort to help our new parents and students understand the program, below is the essence of Sweep. 

Students who do not arrive to their first hour class on time will be redirected to the Sweep room. Students who are late to school will need their parent to physically come into the attendance office and sign-in their student.  If a parent fails to follow this procedure, their student will be sent to the Sweep room. 

Student accountability and safety at school are priorities at Mesquite High School. This program will:

-Promote student responsibility assisting them in learning the importance of accountability.
-Increase learning time by reducing classroom disruptions caused by tardy students.
-Reduce the number of students in the hallways and will assist everyone to move through the school safely and expeditiously.

While in Sweep, students will not be able to work on assignments, socialize or use any electronic device (music, texting, internet, games, etc.) Procedures will be in place for students to make up class work and tests that they may have missed when they were in Sweep. All students will be informed of how the Sweep program will be integrated into their school day.  

As the data collected from last year strongly indicates, we believe the Sweep program will continue to benefit students, parents and teachers. The program supports academic education by stressing the importance of class attendance. We strive to give students every opportunity to be successful and the first step towards success is having good attendance. 

Sincerely,
MHS Administration
