  31. Sad to admit it, but, yes I was sent to detention….usually because my homework was not done.

  32. I was a pretty good kid, but i do remember sitting in english class after school one day and wondering how i was going to get home becasue i missed my bus…for detention.


  33. I was never sent to detention. However, when I was in High School I was regularly late (I’ve always had trouble getting up in the mornings since elementary school. I’m a night owl), so much that I was put on a tardy contract. So I would be assigned Saturday School, which was sort of like a detention, only on Saturdays. And it lasted much longer. But I would refuse to go, because I didn’t want to get up early on Saturday mornings. So for missing I would be assigned In-School. When you get In-School, instead of going to your normal classes you went to a classroom with other kids serving, and you just sat in there all day long with whoever was assigned to watch you for the day. Any work you missed in your classes that day could not be made up later.

    But most kids preferred it, cause it gave you a break lol. And if you got someone cool who was supervising the students they would let you watch tv, play games, and chat amongst each other in there. As long as everyone behaved. I even once had an aide who let us send out for pizza for lunch. If you were assigned somebody more strict, then you sat in silence with your head on your desk all school day long; because you weren’t allowed to make up school work in there. And if you skipped In-School, you were suspended. Likewise if you were tardy so many days while on a tardy contract. So I did get suspended for being late. I don’t see how they figured that was a punishment though…If you were late to school, you were rewarded by getting the day off, in my mind. And most of the other kids who were on a tardy contract viewed it that way as well.

  34. Yes!

  35. you bet :)!

  36. Of course I was sent to detention. :-)

  88. Three of my friends and I served detention one time. I cannot remember what year of high school it was. There was no teacher in French class so we had a grand time throwing paper airplanes out the window. Unfortunately for us, they were landing outside of the cafeteria windows and the French class was the only classroom above that area. We all fessed up and served a lunch hour detention (and cleaned up the mess!) ~Pauline (dod@rogers.com)

  89. Oh yes. In the fifth grade I was going through alot and didn’t finish my homework alot. I got lunch detention for that often.

    YES! ALL THE TIME in my Senior year for tardies. But, I had just switched to this HUGE school and someone told me that if you just don’t show, they don’t do anything. So, I didn’t show and I didn’t go to the Deans office when they announced my name over the speaker and nothing ever happened! I guess they had bigger fish to fry at a school that size. :/ Of course, I wouldn’t act the same now~ and I would kill my girls if I ever found out they did that…
