Christmas Break

Parents, just a reminder Christmas Break starts Wednesday, 12/19/18. There will be early release on Tuesday, 12/18/18, all Cadets will be released at 1:15. Please plan accordingly so your cadets are not waiting out in the cold to be picked up. We return to School on Wednesday, January 2nd, with a regular School Schedule. Due to next week, being a short week, there will be no newsletter! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all!  

Phones in Class

Parents and Cadets, it seems as though we have a lot more Cadets using their phones in class, and when it’s being taken from them, they tell staff they are communicating with their parents. PLEASE NOTE: Phones are not allowed in class, regardless of who the Cadet is talking too. If you need to reach your Cadet, please call the front office, and we can relay a message or call them out of class in the event of an emergency. Once phones are removed from your Cadet, it is at the teachers discretion if they can get it at the end of class, or the end of the day. After it has been removed more than once, the parent must come pick it up from the office
