• OUTSIDE DAY FOR LUNCH BREAK UNLESS THE WEATHER DOES NOT ALLOW • 1:30PM DISMISSAL TODAY •

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

Wellness Wakeup Call
If you find out that you are allergic to a food, there is no need to panic. There are many other tasty foods that you can eat instead and you can learn how to avoid the food that causes problems. Here is an important tip to help keep you safe. Learn how to carefully read the labels on foods. You might find an especially good allergy website.

Photos & Videos
Students may NOT take photos or videos while on the school grounds. There are several JMS students who may not be photographed or videoed by law. If you are asked to stop or asked to surrender your phone, you must comply. If you do not, your parent/guardian will be called and will have to come to school.

Lockers ~ Make sure you have your locker information and combinations. Lunch interventions/detentions will be issued for those who continually come to the office. You may NOT leave your binders or book bags on the floor by your locker. If you do, your bag or binder will be taken to the lost and found by the gym.

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!
No Birthdays Today

Birthday Celebrations
Please do not send balloons, flowers, candy, cupcakes, etc. to celebrate student birthdays. Students should not wear birthday tiaras, sashes, buttons, etc. as these items are not part of the enhanced dress code.
