Parents, Students, and Friends -
Parents, if your child has been tardy more that three times in any one class period this school year, he/she will be receiving a Detention Notice. This practice goes on throughout the school year as a consequence for tardiness, sluffing, and unexcused absences. It is important that students are on time for classes so they do not miss instruction and so classmates’ learning is not disrupted upon a late entry. The guidelines for detention are as follows:
Report to room 6 (Ms. Egbert’s room) immediately after school. Report before 2:45 p.m. on Tuesdays and/or Wednesdays. Detention ends at 3:30 p.m. (30 minutes = 1 T; 45 minutes = 2 T or 1 sluff/unexcused absence)
Report with school work, which may include a book you are reading for a class.
No electronic devices are allowed. Leave them in your locker or in a backpack left with the teacher.
Remain completely quiet and follow all directions of the adult supervisor. If you are disruptive, you will be asked to leave and receive no detention credit regardless of time already served.
Be on time! If you arrive late, you will not be allowed to serve your time.
CONTINUE TO SERVE DETENTION UNTIL YOU HAVE CLEARED ALL TARDIES AND/OR SLUFFS/UNEXCUSED ABSENCES. YOU MAY NOT RECEIVE ANOTHER NOTICE.
Failure to follow these conditions will result in activity ineligibility (ie. assemblies, and/or after school sports.)
You will not be eligible to go to Lagoon at the end of the school year unless all detentions have been cleared.
If you fail to serve all detentions, you will not receive your yearbook until the last day of school, at the end of the day.

DRAMA CLASS PLAYS
It's that time of year again. The drama 1, drama 2, and drama tech classes are getting ready for their class play performances. The students have spent the last 5 weeks working on rehearsing, and getting their class plays ready for production. The short plays are a combination of fractured fairy tales and stories based on classic novels. These will be fun shows and we welcome everyone to come and see them. They'll be performed on Tuesday and Wednesday nights at 7:00 pm in the little theatre and will run about an hour. It's free to one and all. Come enjoy the evening with us and support the students' hard work.
