Respect yourself. • Respect others. • Respect property.

Remember: It is not ok to disrupt class. It is not ok to be hurtful to others!

Do you know what Jefferson's schoolwide instructional focus is? Ask your teachers!

TEACHERS: Please check dress code this morning. Any student who has a dress code violation should be sent to room 110, the Guidance Office. Students will receive detentions for being out of dress code.

Girls may not wear camisoles under their uniform shirts. The only thing that can be worn under a uniform shirt is a plain white t-shirt that is tucked in!

Hoodies may not be worn in class!

Main Entree: Chicken Nuggets; Mashed Potatoes & Gravy; Corn

Notice for Monday ~ All students who do not have an application on file this year will be full price on Monday — $1.60 for lunch & 75ยข for breakfast. Also all drinks will be $1.25!

Monday's Breakfast ~ Brown Sugar-Maple Syrup Oatmeal

All food and drink must be kept in the cafeteria. It does not go outside! When you leave the cafeteria, you must go directly outside.

• Students — when guests, administrators, or other teachers enter the classroom, please continue with your lesson. Do not speak to or call out to the visitors, just keep working and paying attention to your teacher.

• Students — please be in your seat when the tardy bell rings! A 3rd tardy will result in 2 full administrative lunch detentions. A 4th tardy will result in an after-school detention. Once you are in the classroom, you must stay in the classroom. If you need a drink or need to use the restroom, go before you enter your next class.

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 must be removed from a classroom that has a "guest" teacher, you will receive a minimum of 2 after-school detentions!

The 21st Century after-school program begins Monday! If you have a registration form, please make sure it is filled out and returned by Monday. Miss Julie will be in the cafeteria today during all lunch shifts with registration forms.
