Morning Announcements:
Teachers ~ Please check to make sure all students are dressed appropriately. No hoodies are allowed in the classroom. T-shirts under uniform shirts should be white or the same color as the uniform shirt.

Students: you are not using your time wisely before school and between classes! There are too many students in the halls after the tardy bell rings. You need to get yourselves to your classroom as quickly as possible. Four minutes is ample time to make it to your next class!

Cell Phones
Students: cell phones should be turned off and kept in your locker during the school day. You should not be carrying them around in your pockets. If you choose to have your phone out of your locker, it will be confiscated and sent to the main office. Your parent will have to come to school to pick it up.
