NORTH NEWS October 28th

Where Tradition began, Excellence continues.


Message from Principal David Ewers

North Community,

We are sending out a Friday edition of the North News to highlight two key announcements that immediately pertain to next week. We will also send out a more thorough edition of North News on Monday morning. Thank you!

1. Halloween and costumes: We wanted to take a brief minute to address Halloween and costumes for Monday. We want to balance having fun with the holiday with ensuring a healthy learning environment.

Halloween costumes are allowed on Monday, as long as they follow the guidelines below. Each of these guidelines are subject to staff discretion.

- The costume cannot be a major distraction to the learning environment.

- We need to be able to see students' faces and be able to identify them for safety purposes.

- The costume cannot include any item that could potentially cause harm to another person.

2. Restroom designation: We have made the decision to re-designate several restrooms on our main level. The following restrooms changes will go into effect on 10/31. If you have any questions, please contact the main office.

- The gender-neutral restroom in the 100 hallway will be designated as a staff-only restroom. This coincides with the opening of our gender-neutral restroom in the cafeteria and ensures a safer, quieter learning environment outside of room 108, and the 100 hallway in general.

- The male staff restroom in the 100 hallway will now become a boys' restroom. Doing so ensures that we have an equal number of boys' and girls' restrooms on the main level.
