Second Chance Breakfast

Changes are being made to our new second chance breakfast, for students who get here too late for breakfast or are not able to get it the first time before school starts.

  • Set up outside 8th grade pod
  • 9:51-9:57 (Blue) or 10:00-10:06 (White): Students will be allowed to leave 3rd period 2 minutes early if they are eating 2nd Chance Breakfast.
  • Students must be in line for breakfast by 9:54 (Blue) or 10:03 (White) or they will not be able to get the breakfast.
  • Students will have a 2 minute grace period to get to class on time. They will be considered Tardy beginning at 9:59 (blue) and 10:08 (white). Doors will lock at this time and they will be processed as Tardy by monitors.
  • The student pass to class will be their breakfast.

*A Reminder*

Please talk with your student to see if they have a binder to keep their math notes in. This binder can be brought daily or kept in my classroom.

All of the lessons notes will be added to schoology as we finish each lesson. If you or your student have any questions please email me at and I will do my best to answer questions in a timely manner, also if your student is confused with one problem have them circle it and ask about it in class the next day. I hope you all have a great week =).
