Procedures
There will be a “reset” at semester for loaner Chromebooks, meaning students on the “no loaner” list will be given three additional chances to return them the same day.
BRING YOUR CHROMEBOOK TO SCHOOL! We only have 20 loaner chromebooks.
If you have lost or broken your own device that was issued, please see the LMC so we can work on getting you a replacement. After 3X keeping loaner chromebooks overnight, students will be placed on a no loaner list and teachers will have to request a loaner for the hour.

Student food deliveries have gotten a little out of hand.  Food deliveries should only take place during your lunch period. Deliveries should only be made at Door 9, where students will need to go outside to pick up their order and can then bring it back in to eat. Delivers will NOT be accepted at the main entrance.

Students should get into the habit of checking their attendance in IC at least once per week to verify they were marked correctly.  They should also be checking email daily.

Athletics
There will be a Parent/Player Meeting for Softball this Thursday, February 1st, at 6pm in the Thune Center.
