Meeting ID: 817 9500 0721
Passcode: 724955


This week, administrators will be visiting elective classes to give brief talks reminding students about behavior expectations, including using positive language, being respectful, and not engaging in horseplay. We are also beginning our spring 3 strikes policy. If students get in trouble for violating school rules, they may receive a strike. Once they receive three strikes, they will lose privileges, including the ability to participate in any end of year activities and field trips. We are looking forward to having a positive second semester.


Thank you for your support and have a great week!

Código de acceso: 724955


Esta semana, los administradores visitarán las clases optativas para dar breves charlas recordando a los estudiantes acerca de las expectativas de comportamiento, incluyendo el uso de lenguaje positivo, ser respetuoso, y no participar en payasadas. También estamos comenzando nuestra política de primavera de 3 strikes. Si los estudiantes se meten en problemas por violar las reglas de la escuela, pueden recibir una huelga. Una vez que reciben tres huelgas, perderán privilegios, incluyendo la capacidad de participar en cualquier actividad de fin de año y excursiones. Esperamos tener un segundo semestre positivo.


Gracias por su apoyo y que tengan una buena semana.
