END OF DAY RELEASE PROCEDURES

In order to ensure that students are following staff directives and to further facilitate student safety, we have changed the end-of-day release. Our new procedures are as follows:

·               All students who participate in extra-curricular activities, walk home, or are picked up from school will be dismissed at 3:32 p.m. 
 
·               Students who ride a bus home from school are to stay with their ninth hour teacher until an announcement is made that their bus has arrived.  
 
Please know that students are being monitored so that they have enough time to go to their lockers, get their materials and get to their buses on time.  We appreciate your support in relation to these new procedures.
 


DELIVERIES FOR STUDENTS
 

In order to ensure an orderly and safe environment, the delivery of balloons, flowers or other similar items to students is not allowed.
