Student schedule changes are not done unless the teacher requests or approves a placement change with the parent and the counselor or administration directs the change.


Lockers: Students do not have lockers for their books. They are given a complete set of books to keep at home. Lockers & padlocks are provided in PE for storage of PE clothing.  It is the responsibility of each student to ensure their assigned PE locker is LOCKED each class period.


Non-emergency messages:

A student message board is used for parents who need to contact students or drop off items during school hours.  Please understand that messages, assignments or other items cannot be delivered to students in their classes. We strive to maintain a high level of educational instruction without interruption.  Items or messages may be dropped off in the main office.  A message notifying the student will be placed on the student message board.  Students need to check the board daily.


Cell phones & other electronic devices:

Cell phone usage and other electronic devices are prohibited during school hours and must be turned off. If a student is caught using a cell phone or other device during school hours, it will be confiscated. All electronic devices confiscated by a staff member need to be retrieved by a parent. Students may use their cell phones before and after school only. The office phone is for emergencies and is available after 2:45 p.m. for transportation needs.


Parent-Teacher Conferences are done on an as needed basis and during fall minimum days.


Report cards/Progress Reports;   Students hand carry their progress reports home for the 1st, 2nd, 4th, and 5th, reporting periods. The semester grades are mailed to the students’ homes at the 3rd and 6th reporting periods. The dates are listed on the district calendar.


Attendance:  Attendance is taken each class period. Students are expected to be in their assigned classroom when the bell rings each period.  Students who arrive to class after the bell rings are considered tardy. Excessive tardies may result in interventions which may include detention, assignment of Saturday School or referral for SART/SARB (School Attendance Review Board).


School announcements are made each morning after the Pledge and are posted to the School Loop news feed and the PTSA eBlast newsletter.
