Attention all students and parents:
Once a student arrives to school, whether they arrive by bus, are dropped off by a parent or guardian, or they walk, students are NOT allowed to leave the school building without permission. This includes walking to the bottom of the hill, going to the parking lot to their car and there is absolutely no leaving to go to the store or local surrounding restaurants. This expectation includes the normal daily schedule, any modified schedule, mid-term exam week and final exam week.
