When the 5 minute bell rings in the morning, you are to go to your 1st hour class. Many students are loitering in the halls long after the 8AM bell rings. The tardy policy will be enforced for all hours of the day and for all classes. THIS INCLUDES GYM CLASSES.

When you have received a 6th tardy, you will face an out-of-school suspension. That suspension will result in you being ineligible for the end-of-the-year field trips!

Please turn in your track uniform to Mr. Taylor or Mr. Blunk. Put your uniform in a bag with your name on it. You will be finded $85 if your uniform is not returned.

Students need to turn in money for the end of the year field trips!

Thursday will be our end of the year Fun Day sponsored by our PTC. Bring your money for food and games. Listen to the announcements for more information!

The Department of Natural Resources & the Springfield Jaycees are sponsoring a kids fishing clinic on Saturday, June 7th at Conservation World on the Illinois State Fairgrounds. This is open to all children between the ages of 2 and 12 years old. Registration and fishing begins at 7AM and ends at noon.

• Students — please be in your seat when the tardy bell rings!

Hallway behavior is very important. If you run, hit, curse, etc. in the halls, you will receive an after-school detention for 1 1/2 hours. You will also receive one if you roam the halls during class time.

BIST ~ Teachers are only going to redirect you once! After that, if you do not follow proper classroom procedures, you will be asked to move to the "Safe Seat" in the classroom. Please move to the Safe Seat without arguing. There will be consequences for being sent out of the classroom to a Buddy Room or Recovery.

If you are asked to go to the Safe Seat and you refuse, you will receive at least 2 after-school detentions!

Guest teachers are aware of our BIST procedures. Please respect our guest teachers.

Remember our school expectations:
Respect Yourself • Respect Others • Respect Property
