Parents, guardians, and students: We have some news! There have been recent discussions about hats being worn in school. Students and teachers have both weighed in with their opinions on the issue. Therefore, after much deliberation, we have made the decision to allow students to wear ball caps, stocking caps, and beanies to school and during school. With this exciting news, we have a few rules for students to follow. First, students' ears should always be visible to teachers throughout the day--the hat cannot cover the ears. Second, students may not wear hoods. Third, hats worn cannot be a disruption to learning. If the hat becomes a distraction to the student or others they will be asked to remove their hat for the day. Lastly, teachers may occasionally ask for students to remove their hats for various reasons, including during the Pledge of Allegiance. If asked to remove their hat, students should oblige. Enjoy wearing your headgear!
Reminder: Boys & Girls Club is CLOSED on Monday, September 12 for their professional development.
Our GR8 volleyball team is on their way to Cape Girardeau for the Dig for Life Tournament! GO TIGERS! You make us proud!
