HOMEWORK ON LINE: Homework for each teacher will be posted on the Homework Tab on this website AND will be posted to the homework bulletin board at the front of the school outside next to the Black Gate.

Phone Zone – Students are reminded that should they need to use their phone during the school day it should be in the phone zone on the blacktop side of the Technology Lab during Snack and Lunch only.
7:45/3:15 Rule – Due to the fact that teachers do not provide supervision until 7:45am and only until 3:15pm, students are not allowed on campus prior to 7:45am and must be clear of campus at 3:15pm unless they are with a teacher or involved in a supervised campus activity or event.
Entry / Exit – A reminder that at the end of the school day, students are required to enter the locker bay from the field side and exit on the hallway side. Students in McCampbell Hall should enter from the blacktop side only and exit to the lunch area. Areas for entry/exit;
* North Gate by the Blacktop at Opal St.
* North East Gate by the Lawn at Opal St.
* South East Gate by the lawn at El Dorado St.
* Front Gate at El Dorado St.
Deliveries – Students who forgot something at home, or are expecting parents to deliver school assignments or lunch should check the table at the front of the office during snack or lunch. Deliveries will not be made to classrooms.
Lost and Found – If you lost an item of clothing, textbook or personal item, please check the coat rack and the table near the front of the office to see if it has been turned in.
