NO SCHOOL - Labor Day (9/3/18)

Seniors who are planning on painting their parking spots, please work on your sketches over the long weekend. They are due to me for approval by Thursday. Painting will be on Saturday, Sept 8th. See Mackensie Deem or FB or Twitter for more details.

Parking Lot Announcement: 

Students who enter and exit the school building through the High School  student parking lot need to make sure you are doing the following to ensure your safety both before and after school. 

1.) Always cross at the crosswalks.  Please do not use the middle crosswalk.  Either use the front crosswalk building across from the sidewalk and brick sign at the front of the building or use the back crosswalk directly across from the band hallway doors.  This is very important because it is difficult for cars and buses to see you if you come out from in between two parked cars. 

2.) Do not walk in the grass strip between the parking lot and the road as drivers can not judge whether you are trying to cross the road or just walking.  Walk in the parking lot until you get to a crosswalk and then cross there. 

3.) Please walk with your younger siblings across the road.  Little people are a lot harder to see in the parking lot.  

4.) Wait at the crosswalks until the bus or car stops for you, or you are directed to cross by a staff member.   Be patient even when you might be running behind, your safety is more important than your timeliness.  
 
5.) Also all students should be dropped off and picked up at the front of the building both before and after school. 

Seniors, we will be holding a class meeting in the media center today during AO. I will call you down to remind you. 


Please turn in the green emergency medical form to Mrs. English by next Friday Sept 7th.
