TARDIES/SPIRIT DAYS –
Now that we are coming up on our first SPIRIT DAY of the year, it is a good time to remind everyone that we have a new Tardy policy this year.  AS STATED IN THE HANDBOOK – If your child is tardy 3 times during the month, they will not be allowed to dress out of uniform for Spirit Day.  If they have 6 or more tardies in the same month, they will not be allowed to dress out of uniform nor will they be allowed to participate in Spirit Day.
So for example – if your child was tardy up to 5 days during August, they will not be allowed to come out of uniform this Friday.  If they had more then 6 tardies in August, they will not be allowed to come out of uniform AND they will not be allowed to participate with the school during Spirit Day.  

PE CLOTHES – Remember, students need to have a change of clothes for our PE class on Thursdays and Fridays!  This can just be a pair of loose fitting shorts and a t-shirt.
