I am out sick today. Rebecca will be reading the following:




Career Services would like to remind Sophomore students that we will be issuing over the summer and fall mid-program completion certificates for those students who have passed their ASTE courses, paid their FFA dues, have completed or working towards completing their SAE work experience requirements, and have earned some community service hours.  For those Sophomores who have not paid their FFA dues or do not have an SAE Pathway on file, please be sure to do so by the end of this school year.  Tim Visel will be meeting with Sophomore students during the summer who have not demonstrated progress in these four areas.  SAE work experiences and community service hours can take place and be earned over the summer.  Community service forms are available on-line on the school’s website, in the Career Services Office in Emerson Building Room #210, and also outside the Career Services Office on the bulletin board in a red folder.


Attention Students: Does the thought of final exams and end-of-the-year projects make you stressed out?    If so, the student council is hosting our first ever Stress Free G  TODAY, Tuesday, June 5th in Emerson 213.  Come for a mid-day relaxation session featuring a brief yoga and stretch routine, mindful meditation through coloring, the calming smells of essential oils, and cucumber water.  Space is limited so please check the list in room 213 to see if you can join us.  Namaste.

The homework center will be open from dismissal UNTIL 2:30PM each day to accommodate those students who may have arrangements for extended time, alternate exam schedule, or need to stay to study or make up owed work. A light lunch will be served in the cafeteria each day during the 10-10:15 break. Regular dismissal is at 12:15 on each exam day. *If you stay for Extended Time (to finish an exam OR to study), you will need to bring a lunch and arrange for a ride home at or before 2:30PM.  No after school activities will be held.







A camera phone buzz-in has been installed on the front door of the McNeil building and we are now locking that door. Staff key cards will unlock it. Students and guests will need to ring the bell and be buzzed in.




Note from the security department: Students: District policy prohibits students bringing glass containers to school. Please do not bring them or they may be confiscated.



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. Security is everyone’s business, so please, adults and students alike, help out by making sure those doors remain closed!



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.
