Why snow days are so hard to predict.
As expressed on the morning announcements this morning, students will now be allowed to carry track bags from class to class. A track bag is not the same as a backpack and must be kept on the back of their chair or under their seat during class. Students will be able to get their backpacks at dismissal .
Students are also now able to go to their lockers during transitions. With this freedom comes the expectation of responsibility. Students are expected to be prepared for class at all times.
In addition, we have also implemented a new tardy policy. The consequences for being tardy for class are as follows:
- 1st Tardy: Verbal Warning
- 2nd Tardy: Synergy Mark
- 3rd Tardy: Synergy Mark and Silent Lunch
- 4th Tardy: Synergy Mark and No Hawk Time
- 5th Tardy: Synergy Mark and Referral
This policy will begin with a trial run on Thursday, January 11 and Friday, January 12, of this week to allow student to become acquainted. The policy be implemented firmly beginning on Tuesday, January 16.
