HIGH SCHOOL HAPPENINGS

Dallas Saunders, 6th-12th Grade Principal

As the 2016-2017 school year begins and we all return to the routines of the new school year I would like to remind students and families of a few items.

Students who drive please park in the east lot and enter through the student entrance doors.  Student parking is on a first come, first serve basis.   For students who ride the bus in grades 6-12, the doors will open at 7:30 a.m. at the student entrance.  Students who are being dropped off will enter in the front of the building near the main office. Doors open at 7:30 regardless of the type or transportation and first period begins at 7:45 a.m. The school day ends at 2:35 p.m.

Meet the teachers will take place on Monday August 29th starting at 6:00 p.m. This is a district wide event.   The Middle/High School will have a brief introductory meeting in the gymnasium to introduce teachers, review dress code, as well as handbook information.  Students and families will then find their homerooms, receive their schedule from their homeroom teacher and proceeded to classes to briefly meet their teachers.  The event will end at 7:00 p.m.  This will be a great opportunity for students and parents to begin the school year on a great note. 

Students will receive their handbooks on the first day of school and it is important for parents and students to review student expectations at school and school events as a family.  

Areas of importance that should be discussed are:

Dress Code

  1. No holes in jeans in which skin is showing
  2. Clothing containing pictures that are obscene or suggestive are not acceptable ( includes referral to alcohol, tobacco, drugs)
  3. Elastic waistband,pants or shorts and stretch pants are not permitted
  4. Shorts and skirts/dresses are permitted but must be no shorter than 2 inches above the knee. (no cut off or biker style shorts).
  5. Hair must be clean, well groomed, and not obstruct vision.  Beards are not permitted.  Hair must be of a natural hair color.
  6. Students in violation of these guidelines will be disciplined, asked to change to acceptable attire or will be sent home until they can meet this responsibility.
  1. Students in grades 6-12 may not carry backpacks, messenger bags, tote bags, etc. to class.  A small purse or pencil bag may be used to carry pencils, pens, and personal items.

 Attendance

  1. When a student is absent, the family must call the school, 330-547-4100 (Option #3), between 7:30 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. to report the student's absence.
    1. If you are unable to call during these hours, please call any time during the day that you can and leave a message for the 6-12 building stating who you are, the child’s name, and the reason for the absence.
  2.  If the absence is not reported by phone, upon returning to school, the student must submit a note or Doctor’s excuse to the office.  All notes must be received within 2 school days of the absence to be excused.
  3. In order to participate in or attend an athletic event, practice and/or an extracurricular activity, a student must be in school on the day of the event all day. If absent full or partial day student  must have a doctor’s note to participate.

 

Cell Phones
Cell Phones should be turned off and kept out of sight unless the classroom teacher instructs students to use them for class activities.

The first few days of school a great deal of information will be sent home with students please take time to read, complete, and return all forms to school as soon as possible. 

I feel that communication between home and school is a critical aspect to our students success.  So I encourage you to make contact with teachers, counselors, or administrators if there are any concerns.

I am looking forward to a fantastic school year!

     With the large amount of technology available to students today, here is a few online safety tips to share with your family.  Although it may seem common sense to some, we need to remember these tips every day.

  1. Do not share personal information online.  Keep information about yourself private.  This includes information about your family, your school, your phone number, and your address.
  2. Be careful what you write or upload.  Think twice before you post or say anything online.  Once it is out in cyberspace, it is there forever.  Do not post anything that you would not want your family, other students, teachers or current and future employers to see!
  3. Connect with care.  Do not click on links or open emails from people you do not know.  Cyber criminals use emails and links that look okay to lure people into clicking.  If you think an offer is too good to be true, it probably is.
  4. Use strong passwords.  Try not to use the same password for multiple sites.
  5. Keep your belongings safe.  Lock your computer and your cell phone.
  6. Be a good online citizen.  Understand that what you do online is the same as what you do in person.
  7. Speak up!  If you see something bad or inappropriate online, are contacted by someone you do not know or do not want to talk with, or see cyber bullying taking place, do not retaliate.  Talk to a trusted adult and work together to solve the problem.
