We are having problems with cell phones and IPod Touches in classrooms. Students are texting and taking pictures during class time. Currently, cell phones are to be kept in the office and picked up at 3 o’clock and IPod Touches are only to be used in the morning before classes, at lunch and after school. I am trying very hard not to ban these items from school, however, the continued misuse by our students despite numerous warnings is increasing on a daily basis. This will be the final notice to students and parents regarding this issue. If students do not adhere to this policy cell phone
This is a reminder to students, staff, and parents that the cafeteria will be CLOSED on Thursday March 3rd 2011 as Winter Wellness Week is in full swing.
Students are asked to bring a packed lunch to school unless their homeroom teacher is planning on ordering lunch!!
