All vehicles parked in the student parking lot will be required to have a parking pass. To obtain a parking pass, the student must bring $5, driver's license, proof of insurance, and picture of their license plate to the front desk. Students must also have a drug testing consent form on file.
Beginning Tuesday, August 27, all vehicles in student parking that do not have the required permit will be formally warned with an orange warning sticker.
Beginning Monday, September 16, all vehicles in student parking without the required permit will be towed.
Thank you for helping us keep our campuses safe and secure!
DROP OFF/PICK UP: The parent drop off/pick up is on the west (gym side) of the building. Please use the parking lot to enter and exit. The loop on the south side is for buses only.
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.
