Students, please be aware that all bathrooms and hallways in the B, C, D, and E buildings will be off limits during BOTH lunches. We have opened up the restrooms in the H, I and J quads for you to use during those times. Students caught in the B, C, D, E hallways without a bathroom pass during lunch, will be issued disciplinary consequences. (Carreon)
Students-As the weather begins to heat up, we are beginning to see more students who are breaking the dress code that is outlined in the Parent Student handbook. Students are expected to attend school in clothing that does not disrupt the educational process, and may be subject to disciplinary action if they break the dress code. The following guidelines have been put forth by the district and school board:
- Garments that expose the chest, and tank tops with extended armholes are prohibited.
- Shirts and shoes are required at all times. No bare midriffs or bare backs, no low cut or revealing tops are allowed.
No “off-the-shoulder” garments are to be worn. Garments, including pants, shall be sufficient to conceal underclothes.
No underclothing should be worn as outer clothing.
- References or innuendoes to drugs, alcohol, weapons, sex, tobacco, racial slurs, profanity, or any disparaging remarks are prohibited.
- Any gang symbols are strictly prohibited. A more restrictive policy may be applied as necessary to maintain a safe and orderly campus.
You support in this matter is greatly appreciated.
Students, please remember to wear your ID every period, every day. If you have lost it, go to your building office for a replacement ID. Paper replacement IDs are no cost.
