Everyone who has not been in detention more than two time, 7 or less absences, no D’s or F’s will be able to attend this year. Those who do not like snow can stay in the lodge and have board games, activities, and a movie. We are excited to offer this. Being tardy will begin again at 0 on Monday, October 30th for Q2. Behavior can throw your child into detention. The 4th tardy in a class they will cause a detention and every Tardy after the 4th, detention will be assigned.
