Attention Students – please check your email every morning! If you receive a lunch or after school detention, it will be communicated by email the day before, to give you time to make arrangements to be there. Emails are sent to students and robocalls are made to parents the night before. Failure to check these communications and failure to show to scheduled detentions will result in an escalation of consequences. 

We will be instituting Saturday School. Students may be assigned to Saturday School for repeated violations and other infractions. If you have been repeatedly asked to remove your hood, you will be assigned detention or Saturday School depending on the frequency of your violations. If it’s a habit to pull your hoodie up, break the habit – don’t wear a hoodie. Thank you for helping us with this safety issue that we have discussed multiple times. 

Have you wanted to get back in shape? Do you need to get or stay in condition for a spring sport? Have you wondered about track but didn’t want to commit to the whole season and team? Meet at the four-corners area after school from 2:40 – 4:10. We are a group of athletes and coaches interested in training to get faster, stronger, and more agile. Try it out any day of the week and enjoy good socialization and hard work. Don’t wait. Join us and improve.
