Mustang Round-Up News

Congratulations to Jerry MCAlpin! Support Employee of the Year!
Our 8th graders had visits from some North High School clubs, organizations, and athletics. I hope they share with you some of the information they learned. Freshman night is just around the corner please see details in the next section.
We are also continuing with our building expectations. This week students will update the passwords for their login. When we reset passwords we also review the password retrieval process with students. They are all expected to sign-up for self-service password reset in case they forget their password after it is reset.
It is disappointing to hear that we had another teacher leave us on Friday. When a teacher leaves it can be extremely difficult for families, students, and staff. It is extremely important to listen to our student and family concerns. If your child needs someone to talk to our counselors are available in the front office. I have received many emails from our students and families. I am linking an article here about coping when a teacher leaves. It is for younger children but most of the information is applicable no matter what the age. Working in education is a challenging job each and every day. We hate to see educators leave the profession. There are many articles out there about educators leaving and each one has differing opinions on why teachers leave. Our district and school are doing everything we can to hire the best candidates and to support them in their teaching journey. We are working hard to find a replacment soon.
I hope you had a wonderful weekend!

Student IDs Required to Be Worn Each Day
Students are required to wear their student ID each and every day. All students have received their initial ID for the year. Students that do not have their ID are expected to print a sticker to wear for the day. This should only be used in emergency situations. Students who have printed too many stickers will be expected to serve lunch detention and to purchase another ID for $5.
This is one of the district's many safe guards for our schools. IDs provide a quick glance of students that belong to our school, their grade level, and which parts of the building they should be in during the day.
Dress Code Reminders
The Edmond Public Schools Board of Education dress code policy. For reference - it is available by clicking here.
Please be sure your child is dressed according to the diagram labled appropriate. We will address dress code when students violate the policy. This could mean students putting on clothing we have in our clothing collection to meet the dress code. The goal is to return to class as soon as possible while meeting the dress code expectations.

DROPPING OFF ITEMS
We ask that you check with your student before they walk out the door and make sure they are prepared for the day. This includes having their, Chromebook, ID and Lunch. If your student does forget their lunch or something they need for school, we have a cart in our front lobby with grade levels. This will be rolled back into the common area for the students to pick up their items during passing. Please drop off LUNCHES or SCHOOL SUPPLIES ONLY.
If you are dropping off an instrument or athletic equipment we will place this by the back office door for them to come up and get during their passing or after school. Please make arrangements with your student regarding these items and where to retrieve them.
