IMPORTANT Reminders from the  Student Services Office: Just a few reminders for all students. Remember that even though it is starting to warm up the dress code remains the same. All students must wear appropriate clothing that covers your body. No undergarments including bra straps or shirts that expose your midriff. Also, please remember as it gets warmer you will most likely start to perspire a little more heavily. Remember to shower or bathe daily. Deodorant should be applied daily and preferably after PE class. Finally keep your hands and feet to yourself at all times. Horseplay leads to fights or accidents.  Thanks for your cooperation!
