A Message from the Dean

 “Be the light that leads and the inspiration that lifts others to excellence.”

 

Welcome Back!

It is hard to believe that yet another summer has come and gone and the crisp days of fall are on our doorstep! Many changes have occurred over the summer and we are eager to begin a new year full of opportunities.

There have been a few changes and additions within the Code of Conduct and Student Handbook for the 2017 – 2018 school year. Please review these documents with your students before the upcoming year. Some of these changes address the use of personal devices during the school day and eligibility policy procedures.

Personal Device Usage: Personal devices ie: phones, iPods, iPads, tablets, & laptops should be placed in a secure area ie: locker, backpack, purse, or pocket during class and study hall time. Devices should be on mute or off during this time as well. Failure to keep devices out of sight will result in confiscation and the devices will be returned to the student after the end of the day. Subsequent offenses will result in a parent personally reclaiming them from the Main Office. While we encourage students to utilize technologies to enhance their educational experience, we need to limit distractions within the classroom. We appreciate your assistance and cooperation.

Eligibility Appeal Procedure: Students who are failing 2 subjects may appeal after one week to the Eligibility Appeal Committee. Students must use the following criteria to be considered eligible to participate.

  1. The appeal form must be turned in by Thursday at noon to the Guidance Office.

  2. Students must be currently passing at least one class for which they have been identified as failing.

  3. Students must personally present their appeal to the committee to be considered for removal.

  4. After a second appeal parent/s must attend the appeal hearing.

As a reminder, we ask that when visiting a classroom during the day, parents register in the Main Office where the secretary will notify the classroom teacher. We look forward to working with our students, families, and community as we partner together in another promising school year.
