  • No Failing grades (Below a 70 in any class)

  • No In School Suspension (ISS)

*We look forward to rewarding our students for their hard work and their great behavior!

Crossing Lebanon

Students, if you need to cross Lebanon in order to get to and from school, you must cross with the crossing guards in front of our school. From there, you can walk down Lebanon in either direction. Concerned citizens have reported that our students are running across Lebanon down the street without the use of a crossing guard, and this is extremely dangerous because not all cars see you and they do not expect to stop. Students are getting themselves into dangerous situations. Again, ONLY CROSS LEBANON AT THE CROSSWALK WHERE WE HAVE CROSSING GUARDS AT WORK. THEY ARE HERE TO KEEP US SAFE!
