SENIOR CONTRACT & CHAPTER 19 REMINDER

Seniors:
This is a reminder that Senior Contract is in effect for the remainder of the school year.  Senior Contract is about Chapter 19, student discipline and the different Class Offenses (A, B, C, D).  Please note that ATTENDANCE (unexcused absences and tardies) is considered a Class C/D offenses and can prevent you from participating in the Graduation Ceremony.  Participating in the Graduation Ceremony is a privilege and not a right.  It is important that you make good choices, attend school daily and on time, complete your course work and exhibit good behavior.

Parents: We need your support to continue encouraging your son/daughter to push through this final semester of high school.  We would like to see ALL of our students participate in the Graduation Ceremony
