Student Expectations

Flu and cold season is here. Keeping your hands clean is one of the most important steps we can take to avoid getting sick and spreading germs to others. Many diseases and conditions are spread by not washing hands with soap and clean, running water. The CDC recommends scrubbing your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds. 

Please respect our new hat privilege.  Do not touch other students’ hats.  Keep yours on your head.  Do not share hats.  We don’t want to lose this privilege.

We are a closed campus school.  That means no student is to leave during the day without parent excusal/sign-out.  Also, no students are allowed to leave or be in the parking lot during lunch.

You may not go to the parking lot during the day without permission and signing out in the office.  This is only if you are leaving for the day with parent permission or are quickly grabbing something.  You should not be leaving, going with a group of students to your car, or hanging out in your car during the day.

Please keep your space clean:  pick up your garbage and throw it away, do not draw on anything other than paper, keep your belongings in your locker.

Students coming from CTE, Ag & Culinary MUST wait in the cafeteria before 3rd hour.

Students are not allowed to walk on the service drive behind the buildings after school lets out, as buses and traffic are trying to flow through there. Students are asked to walk on the sidewalks for the driver and students' safety.

Please do not spray cologne, perfume, body spray, or deodorant in the hallways.  There are many people allergic to strong smells, and it can cause problems. Take care of these things at home or in the locker room after gym class.

The student section is for the purpose of cheering in support of and for our team, not against the visiting team.
