Nuts & Bolts

  • Vaping is becoming a big issue. Please let us know if you see or hear of it. We have started filing with the city on students who are caught with eCigs, drugs, fighting, and disorderly conduct. We have filed on over 15 students. Spread the word to your students and please help us by popping into bathrooms during passing periods or when you walk by.

  • Three-week progress ends Monday, October 15th. Please make sure grades are up-to-date because this can make or break a student gaining or losing eligibility.
