Health Class • Final Update

All coursework was originally due by August, but the deadline has been extended and communicated to the students multiple times since then. Mid-September it was announced that the final deadline would be October 18. All work is due by tomorrow.

Concessions protocol for the new uniforms:

We are very fortunate to have new uniforms and will be debuting them this Friday for homecoming and wearing them again on Saturday for our marching competition. Students should use good judgement when eating food in our new uniforms and should refrain from the following: powdered sugar, globs of ketchup/mustard, or other dips (polynesian sauce, nacho cheese, etc.) while in uniform. Additionally, students are only permitted to drink clear liquids (water, Sprite, etc.) while in our new uniforms. Any uniform that has to be cleaned because of a student’s failure to follow these guidelines will be cleaned at the expense of the student’s parents.

Access Road Behind the Band Room

The access road behind the band room that connects our room to the driveway of our storage building is not for thru traffic. On Friday night we had some parents pull through this access road while we were still unloading equipment. This poses a safety issue for our parents/students who were entering and exiting the garage while unloading equipment.

Please keep the bus loop clear

Additionally, we had many parents forget not to park in the bus loop after an away game. There were multiple cars parked at the entrance to the band facility which blocked the buses and equipment trucks from entering. Thank you for your help in keeping this roadway clear for our students and volunteers to return without obstruction and expediting our unloading process so that we all can go home sooner and safely.
