Padres de actualizaciĆ³n CartaEn un esfuerzo por proporcionar a nuestros estudiantes la oportunidad de sacarle el máximo provecho a la enseñanza en clase con pocas distracciones, se han hecho cambios o adiciones a nuestros códigos de vestimenta y asistencia. Las camisas y blusas sin mangas o pantalones cortos con mas de 3 pulgadas arriba de la rodilla no están permitidos en la escuela. Los estudiantes vistos con camisas o blusas sin mangas o pantalones cortos serán enviados a la oficina de orientación para cambiarse. Si el estudiante se niega a cambiar su camisa o blusa sin mangas o pantalón corto, un padre o tutor serán llamados para que le traigan otra camisa, blusa o pantalón al estudiante. Debido a cierta incertidumbre en cuanto a qué tipo de coloración del cabello constituye una distracción, hemos modificado la sección sobre el cabello que se encuentra en el manual para los estudiantes bajo la sección de vestimenta inaceptable que diga lo siguiente: Cualquier coloración del cabello que no es su color natural esta prohibido. Esto incluye pero no se limita a franjas, puntas o bordes teñidos, cabello teñido trenzado o torcido a su cabello natural. Si un estudiante llega a la escuela con cualquier tipo de coloración de cabello, un padre o tutor serán llamados para recoger al estudiante de la escuela.

 

 En lo que respecta a la asistencia, las siguientes adiciones se han hecho bajo el codigo de asistencia: La asistencia será tomada durante cada período de clase. Gracias por su atención a estas adiciones y cambios, ya que queremos proporcionar una comunicación clara entre nuestra escuela, estudiantes y padres. Si usted tiene alguna pregunta, por favor, póngase en contacto con la escuela.
Handbook UpdatesIn an effort to provide our students the opportunity to take full advantage of classroom instruction with limited distractions,  we have made some additions and/or changes to our dress code and attendance policies. Sleeveless shirts and shorts shorter than three inches from the knee are not permitted at school. Students seen wearing sleeveless shirts or shorts that do not meet the three inch criteria will be sent to the guidance office to change. If the student refuses to change shirts or shorts, a parent or guardian will be called to bring the student another shirt or pair of shorts. Also, due to some uncertainty as to what type of hair coloring constitutes a distraction, we have amended the hair section of our student hand book under unacceptable attire to read as follows: Any hair coloration that is not your natural hair color is prohibited. This includes but is not limited to streaks, dyed tips and edges and/or different colored braids or plats. If a student arrives at school with any type of hair coloration, a parent or guardian will be called to pick the student up from school.

 
In regards to attendance, the following additions have been made under the attendance policy: Attendance will be taken during each class period. Thank you for your attention to these additions and changes as we want to provide clear communication between our school, students and parents. If you have any questions, please contact the school.
