Things You Need to Know:

School Rule

***CROSSING GUARDS are provided for student safety, let's be perfectly clear .
School crossing zones are where young people are hit every year.
It's happened here. Don’t neglect your crossing guard - lend her your ear.
With a crossing guard on duty, there is nothing to fear.
Also, please stay off of cell phones while crossing the street.
Distracted walking is dangerous, lose your step and miss a beat.
Summer is near.
Stay safe. It's almost here!

** NO OPEN DRINKS IN LOCKERS… NO POLAR POPS… HOT OR ICED COFFEE DRINKS… and NO OPEN SODA BOTTLES! Your lunchbox beverages must remain in your lunch box sealed until lunch. Email Mr. Hoffman if any of this in unclear.

** DRESS CODE REMINDER. No pants with holes above mid-thigh, which is where your fingertips land when arms are at your side. (Page 50-51 in your student handbook.) *Refer to the handbook at the MJHS website under the student tab.

** There is a black shelf in the office is the Island of Forgotten Items dropped off by parents. The office does not call you down forgotten items. It is the student’s responsibility to come seek and find your forgotten items on the shelf. Come and look any time between classes. Your parent may email you to let you know it is here. Your email is first.last@mcusd709.org

The View From LMC:

PUT YOUR CHARGER IN YOUR SOCK DRAWER. WHEN YOU TELL ME YOU CAN’T FIND IT next fall - I will tell you it is in your SOCK DRAWER.

If You are a Student with an iPad:

This announcement is for you. Your iPad is a learning AND communication device. Checking your email is a student responsibility. Not optional but an expectation. PLEASE add an alarm to your iPad if you need one, but you need to check your email at the beginning and end of every school day - and more often, if possible.

Forgotten Items

Lost & Found

Lost & Found is outside of the cafeteria doors across from the bathrooms. Look for your items. They are donated several times a year when the shelf is full. THAT SHELF IS NOT a place to put binders and iPads while you eat lunch. Binders and iPads MUST be in lockers during lunch.
