Knighton's Notes

Friendly Reminders on Incident Reporting:

* For Incident reports: In the subject line, include the student's first initial, last name, and date.

* When signing the report, please sign next to the signature box where you type your name.

*Incident reports are legal documents, and have the potential to become court documents. Please remember to do a spelling and grammar check.

*Submit incident reports by 2:30pm.

* Stick to the facts.

Other Notes:

*Our suspension list is now on the Message Board. If a student is suspended, teachers will mark the student as absent, and the office will take care of marking it as a suspension.

*ABC Program: Students who wish to cash in their vouchers for fries in Smitty's Café will have to follow the procedure for requesting a meal (i.e. utilizing a voucher, getting approval and scheduling with Ms. Heather in advance).
