The Loy Norrix Freshman Volleyball team competed at the Coldwater Freshmen Invitational this
past weekend. They defeated Coldwater and Delton Kellogg to win their morning pool, but were
knocked out in the first round of the Gold bracket after a tough loss to Schoolcraft. Reese Link led the
team in most consecutive serves, while Diamond Mabon dominated the left side in spite of an injured
ankle. Tomorrow, Wednesday they have their first away game against the Gull Lake Blue Devils.
Wish them luck!

And now for a few notes from the Administrators: We have some students who are missing their
education in their 3rd hour class because they are taking multiple lunches.  This is considered
truancy, students will be assigned detentions for taking multiple lunches. Also please
remember to remove your hats and hoods upon entering the building and remember to have them off
any time you are in the hallways, cafeteria or any other common area.  We have issued reminders to
students who have struggled to remember this; however, because we are in our 3rd week of school,
we will be issuing detention and please check your KPS email account each day.

Notifications will be sent to your account for lunch and after school detentions and other important
messages. Detention notifications will be emailed after the school day ends for detentions scheduled
for the following day.
