Make sure you get them turned in for a homeroom treat!

PARENT INFORMATION
Did you know that students who legitimately use an opioid prescription are ⅓ more likely to misuse the drug by age 23 than those with no history of prescription use. The Student Prevention Leadership Team (SPLT) is campaigning against prescription drug abuse and heroin addiction. The strongest risk factor for heroin initiation is past abuse of opioids. If a child or a parent is prescribed opioid pain relievers after surgery or other medical procedures there is a possibility of becoming hooked to the drugs. Once they are hooked and all of the drugs are gone, they are most likely switch to heroin because it is cheaper than buying more prescription pills. When the doctor tells a patient to stop using medications or there is medication left over after past medical procedures, the pills should be disposed of in RedMed Box to avoid misuse.

Students who are leaving school early for an appointment should remember to come to the office first thing in the morning before school starts to receive an exit pass. They should not give their notes to their teachers. Do not wait until lunch to receive your exit pass.

DROP OFF ITEMS
Students, if your parents drop off items for you during the day, they will be held at the front door with our door monitor. Please listen to announcements during the class changes for your name. At that time, you may pick up your items from the door monitor.

SAFETY REMINDER
When getting off of the bus in the morning, be sure to stay on the sidewalk to get to the junior high. Do not walk on the cement island.

CHROMEBOOKS
Students please remember to limit what you take to each class. Chromebooks can not be stacked on several books. Carrying several books increases the chance for your chromebook to slip and break.

HEALTH ROOM VISITS
You must report to your next hour teacher before coming to the health room unless it is an emergency. That way your teacher knows where you are.
