Leopard Baseball defeats Olney!

In the first day of the Gainesville Leopard classic, the Leopards came out firing on all cylinders for the home crowd. Draike Sparks got the nod on the hill for the Leopards and threw 4 innings of one run baseball. Sparks had 8 strikeouts and only 3 walks with 1 earned run. The Leopard baseball team played tremendous defense behind Sparks as they only committed one error on the day. Landon Prestage led the way for Gainesville with a 4-4 day at the plate along with 2 RBI’s. Devlyn Hall and Cesar Garcia also had a multi-hit game with 2 a piece along with each recording 2 RBI’s as well. It was an energetic home opener for the Leopards as Coach Roberson got his first career win as a head coach. Big THANKS to Ms. Boswell for the great pics!

FOOD Deliveries

Students may have food brought to them from parents, guardians and family members. They may NOT order it and have it delivered.

Cell Phones

We appreciate your support as students get accustomed to the new cell phone policy. It takes an adjustment period but we will continue to keep the instructional focus in our classrooms and hallways.

Just as a reminder:

Cell phone use is prohibited in classrooms, hallways and restrooms. They must be stored or put away during the instructional day.

Cell phones are allowed to be used before 8:15 in the cafeteria AND during a student's assigned lunch period in the cafeteria.

● On the first offense and second offense, the telecommunications device shall be confiscated and then returned to the parent with a warning for the student/parent. The parent and student will sign the written warning.

● On the third offense (and incremental offenses thereafter), a $15 fine shall be required before the telecommunications device is returned. ○ A parent may elect to forgo the fine in place of an alternative deterrent.

■ If the fine is not paid, the student will be required to report to the front office to turn in their electronic device(s) each day for a period of five consecutive school days. The device(s) will be available for student retrieval at the conclusion of each school day for this situation only. All other confiscations must be retrieved by a parent and/or guardian.
