Student Check-out

If you are planning to pick up your child for early release, please be sure you are in the office by 3:15 p.m. After that time, please plan on going through the parent pickup line. Since the buses arrive on campus around 3:20 each day, the ability for you to park and get out before they arrive is slim. Once the buses arrive and park out front, it is against the law to pull out and around the buses since their stop signs are out and lights are flashing.

Dress Code Concerns

There are a few things that need to be specifically addressed that seem to be consistent:


  • Boys: The biggest concern we see is boys that have long hair that extends below the eyebrow but they push it to the side so that it is not in front of their eyes. This is not in compliance with the policy. If the hair extends below the eyebrows then it is too long.
  • Girls: There are lots of cute tops that are being worn that have large v-neck cuts that are showing the girls undergarments underneath. There should be no undergarment item showing on the young ladies.


The Dress Code Policy has not changed since last year, but if you need to reference it, click here and then scroll to page 37. If you have questions, please let us know.

Armed Forces Display

If you have a loved one that is currently serving or has served in the armed forces, please send a picture to us with the following information: branch served; time served; relation to the student on campus.

Attendance

Students are required to be in attendance 90% of the academic year, this breaks down to mean no more than 18 excused or unexcused absences. Every class period at the junior high level counts toward compulsory attendance. This includes the Eagle period at the end of the day.
