Thank you for your help and support in our efforts to reduce tardies to school and during the school day. We will continue to issue detentions to those students who are tardy in the morning and to those who are late to class during our tardy sweeps. Together, we can work to maximize student learning time in the classroom.
Cell Phone Reminder
This is a reminder that student cell phones need to be off and in their backpacks during class time. No phones should be kept in pockets or sweaters. Students are allowed to use their cell phones before school, during Nutrition, during Lunch and after school. This policy has cut down classroom distractions significantly and we appreciate all of the parent support that we have received. Students have been more focused in class and ready to learn!
Charge those Chromebooks and Bring those Agendas!
Please remind your students to come to school each day with their agendas and their chromebooks fully charged. This will avoid them having to lose valuable class time to exchange them in the media center. Chromebooks and Agendas are part of their daily materials and they are a vital part of daily classroom activities.
Thank you for your help!
Food Delivery Reminder!
We have been having numerous problems with students ordering food to be delivered during class time. Food may only be delivered during the 30-minute lunch period. If any food is delivered during class time, it will remain in the office until after school. No food is to be taken to the classrooms. The kids were made very aware of this in the beginning of the year.
