Here are the highlights from the Weekly School Messenger for the Week of August 26th.

Permanent student parking hang-tags will be distributed this week during lunches in the cafeteria and after school near the applicable parking lot. We will start tomorrow with the Purple Parking lot. Students must bring their temporary paper tag to get the new hang-tag!  Please listen for announcements regarding the other parking lots and tag distribution.

Parents and Guardians, please check in at the front office before going to a teacher’s room or counselor’s office. We need to provide you with a visitor’s badge and make sure that the person that you would like to see is available. We also ask that you park in the visitor spots as all of our parking spots are numbered this year.

We do not allow food deliveries to campus that include outside food. Please do not deliver or have delivered food per our School Board policy.

Please contact Mary Davis, the school nurse, if your child has a medical condition.  Students are not allowed to carry any medication, including Advil, cough drops or antibiotic ointment. Please contact our clinic if your child needs medication administered during the school day. Students who need to carry emergency medications – EpiPen‘s, asthma inhalers or diabetes supplies, should see the school nurse or the clinic assistant to get the required paperwork.

Our first #MustangsRiseAbove Parent Dance Meeting Expectation is tomorrow, August 27thbeginning at 6:30PM in the gymnasium. As a reminder, there will be another on September 10thand your parent/guardian must have participated in one of the Parent Dance Meetings that were held last year, online or in person, if you want to attend the Homecoming Dance, Winter Ball, or Prom. Again, these meetings will allow each student to get a unique dance number that will be required to purchase a ticket to any of the dances. If you have any questions, please email Ms. Schultz.

Our Open House will be this Wednesday, August 29that 6:30PM. Please report to your child’s RANCH/Homeroom teacher at 6:30PM. We will have important information presented during this time. The remainder of the evening will be the meet and greet for families to say hello to teachers and learn about their child’s classes. Please know that this is not a time for a parent conference. If you feel as though you need a conference, please contact Mrs. Alice Hunt, our guidance secretary.

Underclassmen Picture Day is this Thursday, August 30th. Please be in dress code and dress your best! Students will take pictures through their English classes. If you do not have an English class on campus, please come during your lunch period. If you do not have your picture taken, you will not be in the yearbook this year. Picture Package Flyers will be available to families this week on Monday when students will receive them.
