SMS Announcements-Thursday, Oct. 12th-B Day




The behavior focus this week will be After School Activities. A reminder that After School Activities are extensions of the school day, so expectations should still be followed otherwise consequences will be given. For example, this week is the football game, remember the following:

  • Students are to stay in the assigned student section in the lower bleachers if they are not sitting with their parents

  • Students must follow ALL district employee directions

  • Students should only leave their section for concessions and the restrooms and return to their seats as soon as they are done.

  • Bring a clear bag

  • There should be no PDA

**If students are asked to leave the football game, they will be expected to leave. They cannot go sit with their parents.**
