The doors to the cafeteria will be locked promptly at 7:10am. After 7:10 students will have to enter through main office door.
Any student that is new to the building, please report to the main office during 6th period to have your picture taken for ID purposes.
A reminder to all students…please make sure you bring and wear your ID tomorrow and every day. If you have lost your ID you will need to go to the main office to purchase a new ID. IDs are $5. Students who forget their ID will be issued an office detention for the first time and then further consequences will be issued each time.
A reminder to all students and teachers! Homeroom period starts at 7:20. You should be out of the halls and into your homeroom classroom by that time. Anyone arriving to homeroom or class after 7:20 will be marked tardy by their teacher. Students arriving to school after 7:20 will have to enter through the main entrance and will need to get a pass from the tardy station by the main office. If you get marked absent because you are late to class you will not be able to leave class and will have to straighten your attendance out on your own time. Please remember that too many tardies and absences can contribute to absences from class and you will need to attend buyback to make up missed time.
Attention staff: the focus group session on attendance and tardies is cancelled for today, but will be rescheduled for a new date soon.
