Friday, September 2, 2016

• OUTSIDE DAY FOR LUNCH BREAK UNLESS THE WEATHER DOES NOT ALLOW • NO SCHOOL MONDAY DUE TO LABOR DAY OBSERVANCE •

Remember ~ your day is what you make it. Let's make it a great one!

Lockers ~ Make sure you have your locker information and combinations. Lunch interventions/detentions will be issued for those who continually come to the office.

Trash on the Playground - There is too much trash being thrown on the ground after breakfast and after lunch. If you take food items outside, you MUST place your trash in the trashcans. If the extreme littering continues, no snack items will be sold during lunches.

Hall Passes - If you are in the hallway during class time, you must have a pass or be with a supervising adult. NO exceptions!

Bathroom Passes - Remember ~ you only have 12 bathroom passes per quarter. Use them wisely. Do not walk out of class if your teacher asks you to wait.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
