Students, Dress code infractions are on the rise, especially hats/hoods and pajama pants. As a reminder, for dress code infractions, you will receive one warning, for a second offense 3 points will be issued. A third offense results in an additional 3 points and a detention. In all cases, you must change to appropriate attire or you will be considered insubordinate, which will have additional disciplinary consequences. The dress code begins on page 3 of the student handbook. Please review it and dress appropriately for school. Teachers, please remember to enter warnings in skyward. Thank you!

Students, We are pleased that many of you are taking advantage of Homework Help! Moving forward, we will implement the following rules to assist you in making more effective use of the time you spend there. Thank you! 

1) When you enter Homework Help, if you have a phone, you will be required to put it in a designated location and not access it until you are ready to leave. 

2) Chromebooks will only be allowed if attendees seek and receive the supervisor's permission for specific school assignments that require chromebook access.  Homework help is offered on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons from 3:15-4:15 in the library.  

Students are reminded that cell phones are not allowed in the locker rooms or any of the restrooms.  Phones can be confiscated if seen by a teacher. Thank you for your cooperation.
