SKATE NIGHT WAS A ROLLING SUCCESS!

OFF-CAMPUS PERMITS and VISITOR PASSES

Just a reminder, if you are signing your student off campus for any reason, you MUST stop in the main office first and check in with attendance. When ill, students are to check in with the school nurse, who verifies that the student is ill and calls home for the student to be picked up. Students are NOT to use their cell phones to call home during the day for any reason, especially illness. We must know when students are leaving campus at any time during the school day Can you put something in the newsletter reminding parents they need to check their student out in the main office during school hours.


Additionally, if you are coming onto campus for any reason before, during, or after the school day, you must sign in on the Visitor clipboard in the main office and get a Visitor sticker. To ensure the safety of our students, we must know that every adult on campus has checked in through the office. Students from other schools are not allowed to be on campus during the school day for any reason.

AR UPDATE

Students have 6 more weeks to make their AR goal!

BACK TO SCHOOL NIGHT

Thursday, Sep. 7th, 6:30pm

2376 North Avenue

Chico, CA

Come join your student's teachers and staff for an informative evening! You will meet your student's teachers and learn what their classes will entail. This educative event begins in the Bidwell Gym at 6:30pm!

FORGOTTEN ITEMS

Just a reminder as dress-down days and swim season start in PE, the main office does not run passes for forgotten items. We cannot continue to interrupt classes with the number of items we have dropped off in the office daily. Students have been reminded repeatedly in the Daily Bulletin to check up front if they have forgotten an item. Please remember to communicate with your student before school and ensure they have all the items they will need for their school day. Part of the development of student responsibility is dealing with the consequences of forgotten items.

PICTURE RETAKE DAY

Did your student miss Picture day? Not to worry! Picture Retake Day will be September 29th! Please stop by the main office for an order form if you need one!
