PBIS Building Expectations Overview
Arrive to Class ON TIME....EVERYTIME!
You will have 4 minutes passing time in the hall between each class period. It's ok to talk to friends in the hall, but please be sure to manage your time. Clocks are equipped with countdown timers as well as music playing at the 1 minute marks to help students manage their time. Being tardy can affect your citizenship and could prevent you from going to school events such as dances, sporting events, after school clubs, and field trips. Consequences are assigned for excessive tardies that include, but not limited to detentions.
