REMINDER: No student should be in any other building than McNeil during lunch waves. Also, exterior doors to buildings must remain closed at all times…Do Not Prop Doors Open. There were some shenanigans yesterday during third wave on the second floor of Emerson involving students wearing a mask. That’s not OK. Indeed, since the exterior door was propped, it’s an illustration of what can happen when buildings are not secure. Security is everyone’s business, so please, adults and students alike, help out by making sure those doors remain closed!


Congratulations to Johanile Hurtado for winning 3rd Place as a Heritage Speaker in the COLT poetry contest!

The odd side of South Water Street is now designated a residential parking area, now designated by “Zone 17” signs. Non-residents who park there risk being tagged and towed. Please do not park there. And while we’re at it, please do not park anywhere in the bus loading area designated by brick patio in the curb strip between Thomas and Foote.



Students are not authorized to be in any building other than McNeil and the second floor of Thomas before first bell at 7:55. Teachers please DO NOT let students into buildings in the morning unless you intend to personally supervise them, in which case you should let the administrative team know.

If you are locked out of a building for any reason, please report to the main office so we can call ahead and facilitate your reentry. The McNeil building remains open at all times during school hours. Please do NOT knock on entry doors during class time. This is disruptive to everyone in the building. Also do not rely on calls or texts to fellow students. Your entry must be facilitated by an adult. Again…go to McNeil and get called in. Teachers, please do not send students on errands during class time. On that rare occurrence when you simply MUST do so, you MUST phone ahead to their destination to facilitate their entry.
