  • This morning you will find the 5 week Attendance Progress Report for your first period students in your mailbox. Due to the 2 hour delay, we will delay the distribution of the attendance reports till tomorrow.

We will follow the same procedure as last month:

  • Distribute the report and the goal sheet to each student in your period 1 class.
  • Direct students to look at their goals written last month and evaluate if the goal was met.
  • Guide students to write a new goal in the section titled 2nd Quarter Final. (No other section should be filled out.)
  • First period teachers should keep the goal forms, and the student is given the attendance report to share with parent/guardian. The attendance progress report was also mailed home with the Quarter 2 report card.
  • Additional goal forms will be put in your mailboxes for new students and for students who did not complete the form correctly last month. There are also extra forms in the Main Office.

 

Important policy reminders:

 

  • The only bathroom open during 5th period will be on the third floor.  Students should only be using the bathroom in the cafeteria if it is their assigned lunch period.  Unless it is an emergency, students should be waiting to use the bathroom during their lunch period.

 

  • Bathrooms for 7th period:  During 7th period, the bathrooms will only be open from 1:08-1:28 (20 minutes).  Bathrooms will only be open on the 2nd and 4th floors.  Students on the 1st and 2nd floor will use the 2nd floor bathroom and students on the 3rd and 4th floor will use the 4th floor bathroom.  The 3rd floor bathroom will be closed.

 

  • No movement 7th period means no lockers, no water, no traveling to other classes

 

  • Wooden passes should only be used to access the bathrooms.  Green passes should be used for all other situations.  Only one student should be allowed out of a classroom at a time.

 

  • Please remember that the 10-10 rule must be followed at all times.  This means that students should not be leaving the classroom to go anywhere (with the exception of the nurse in emergencies) until 10 minutes after the bell rings for the start of the period and passes to leave the classroom should stop 10 minutes before the class period ends.

 

  • Any student who rides a bus must have their bus pass every day. Also, remember riding the bus is a privilege. Anyone who doesn’t follow the rules can have the privilege revoked. Please respect this rule. Also, temporary bus passes can only be fixed during 6th
  • Students are not allowed to sell candy or any other food items during the school day. This is a public health risk that could have serious repercussions. Students who are seen selling or purchasing any food or candy during the school day will face suspension. The only exception to this rule is for fundraisers supervised by a staff member during lunches

 

  • Please make sure you are following the WPS rules as it relates to cell phone usage. The use of cell phones is not permitted during the school day. Anyone who is in violation of this rule will have their cell phone taken away for the day. If it is a 1st offense you will be able to get it back at the end of the day. Any offense after that will require a parent/guardian to pick up the phone. We are asking that you please respect this rule, and help for us to provide a productive learning environment for all.
