Notes about Middle School SUCCESS program:
1) All students are to be in uniform every day unless they EARNED Dress Down on Fridays.  Your student should have a note from a teacher on Thursday afternoon to indicate he/she has earned this privilege for Friday.  Students are still expected to wear school appropriate clothing even with Dress Down.
2) Please refer to the student handbook if you have questions regarding the uniform policy.
3) SUCCESS hour is a scheduled time where teachers are providing additional support for students based on individual needs.  In addition, we will continue after school tutoring Monday through Thursday and students will be required to sign up in the morning in order to stay after with a teacher that day.  We will transport the students home on the 5:15 bus.
