Dear Parents and Guardians

It is hard to believe that we are already halfway through the month of February.  As Middle School Principals, we wanted to take a quick moment and remind our students, as well as parents/guardians, of key information that we originally covered at the start of the school year.  Specifically, we wanted to remind everyone that schools need to remain a safe and supportive learning environment for all students and stakeholders.  Included below is key information from our Student and Parent Handbook that outlines prohibited student conduct.

We are asking all parents and guardians to take a few minutes to remind their children of this information.  If you have any questions please contact your child’s school at the contact information below.

Prohibited Student Conduct. Misbehavior is a matter of choice.

  1. Using, possessing, distributing, purchasing, selling or offering for sale tobacco or nicotine materials, including electronic cigarettes or e-cigarettes. 2. Using, possessing, distributing, purchasing, or selling alcohol beverages.
  2. Using, possessing, distributing, purchasing, selling or offering for sale
  3. any illegal drug, controlled substance, or cannabis (including marijuana, medical cannabis and hashish) …
  4. any prescription drug…
  5. “look-alike” or counterfeit drugs…
