Good afternoon, Dragons! Including this weekend, you only have school 2 days out of 9 total days. So you have plenty of time to get your studies in;-) Actually, I wish each of you to have a good rest, great food, and an amazing time with your families over the Chuseok holiday!
If you’ve forgotten something in the dorms on a school day,hopefully it will be there when you get back after school. Please do not come to the HS office asking for a dorm pass. Forgot your PE clothes? Nope. Left your Macbook? Really??? Forgot your project!? How can you forget your project that kept you awake until 4am? Maybe you’re a bit tired... Anyhow, I think you’re catching my message. No dorm passes during academic hours.
We’ve already talked about not running to lunch..That still applies, and it also applies to our teachers. However, on the day’s teachers have advisory lunch they need to be in the cafeteria to welcome their advisees. I’ve discussed it with the teachers and they say that it would be a lot better if they could get in quicker on those days. Let’s all help them. When a teacher has advisory lunch, please allow them to skip the line in front of everyone so they can be at their table when you arrive.
If you want to go see a college presentation, I think that’s awesome. You are, though, required to check in with your advisor first so they know where you are and you are not marked absent. Please check in before heading to the presentations.
We’ve had a few issues with students leaving things around the school and when they return, their things are gone! There are two main lessons to be learned here. The first lesson, don’t leave your stuff around and expect it to be there when you get back. The second lesson, don’t leave your stuff around and expect it to be there when you get back (I could only come up with one lesson but sometimes you need two for emphasis).
The policy that is coming out of this: The only lost items we will check CCTV for are wallets. If it is important to you, you should take care of it. Please be mindful of the things you wish to keep.
On the other side of this policy..If you find something that isn’t yours, turn it in. If it seems valuable, bring it to the HS office for one of us to keep. We will try to find the items owner. I don’t think I have to say that we all make this community what it is. If people are taking stuff, what does that make us?

Have a great (super short ) week everyone! Aren’t two day weeks the third best thing ever?! Right behind one-day weeks and weeks with no school at all! Except I really like coming to school…so in my case they’re the fourth best thing ever. Right behind three, four and five-day weeks.
