Any one not complying with this directive will be disciplined for insubordination and/or disturbing the educational environment. Additionally, students are not to be walking with their iPads open, please have them closed and covered if possible.

Students are not to allow outsiders into the building by opening the doors for ANYONE. All visitors must be permitted to enter the building by the high school office staff. At no time should a student open an exterior door to allow someone into the building. This is a serious matter, and disregards for this directive will be met with appropriate disciplinary actions. Again, no student is to permit anyone from entering the building by opening exterior doors in any part of the school.
