Who has Access to the Den


  • SICK STUDENTS.  Please use an e-hallpass or call the main office to request security to escort if unsteady. Call Sydney White (5603) if the student requires a wheelchair escort. Call 911 if it is a medical emergency and then call Sydney to notify her of the student’s name and that a call has been made.
  • STUDENTS WITH MEDICATIONS.  These students have parent/doctor protocols in place with our nurse, Nancy Haning.  
  • STUDENTS WITH BREAK PASS ACCOMMODATIONS. Students with break passes will now report directly to THE DEN. They will not walk the halls/wander. Their time and activities will be monitored. Please use e-hallpass for this purpose.
  • STUDENTS WITH CLASSROOM INCIDENTS- LOW LEVEL. Students having difficulty regulating, disrupting after multiple interventions, etc., may be sent (at teacher discretion). For repeated low level incidents, teachers may complete TuHS Behavior Tracker & Disciplinary Referral as per the TuHS Leveled Sanctions if the behavior continues after the teacher has partnered with the parent(s)/guardian(s). Students will be expected to regulate and identify why they were unable to access the support provided in the classroom setting (by the teacher).  Den-level interventions will be tracked. You may follow up with Jessica Renhard (; x5667) regarding these incidents and can expect communication from an adult who engages with them in this space. 


  • ATTENDANCE CONCERNS.  Stephanie Kensinger (; x5769) and Jessica Renhard (; x5667) are tasked with supporting Re-Engagement. Please submit a TuHS Behavior Tracker & Disciplinary Referral if you are concerned about a student who is habitually missing your class despite efforts to intervene.

  • HIGH-LEVEL INCIDENTS- For classroom or hallway incidents that involve safety (threats, illicit substances, direct, biased-language, weapons), please call Liz Baca (5604).
