Mega Lunch Update

This past week we took a break from Mega Lunch to see if students could improve at managing their behavior and have a reminder to take advantage of all of our Mega Lunch opportunities. We saw significant improvement but we still have a ways to go.

We understand that one of the elements of Mega Lunch that students missed was easy access to tutorial times which is one of the reasons that Mega Lunch was created. This week is the 3rd week of the 2nd six weeks and progress report are due at the end of the week. Students take this week to visit with your teachers about ways to improve your grades.

We are still looking for the following things:

-Pick up your trash.

-Stay out of the parking lots and other "no-go zones" (Those designated on the maps in the building.)

-Respect all students, faculty, and staff with words and actions.

-Go to alternative lunch and action lunch as assigned.

-Go to all classes on time.

-Food deliveries must be only to the family's student at WHS. Please come in the front office and fill out a delivery form. Food must be handed to students in the front office by the family member.

-Refrain from public displays of affection.

-Take the time to visit tutorials and clubs.

-Use the time to take care of restroom needs as well as visiting the counselor and career center.

If we have to suspend Mega Lunch again, it will be for a significantly longer time. Take care of business.
