- Notice To Parents:
Please make it a priority to emphasize to your sons and daughters the need of securing and locking their property while on campus. Whether it be in the locker rooms, the cafeteria, or anywhere during the day, students need to be sure that their valuable items are not accessible or visible to “other eyes”. It is advisable that students use their personal locker as much as possible and consider purchasing a combination lock from the Athletic Department for their use in the gym area. Please also be reminded that all electronic 2-way devices are prohibited from use during the school day. In this sense, attention to detail and reinforcing best practices should always be our prime objective.
Similarly, may I request that you communicate a specific message to your students who drive to school that we will be utilizing the police force to aggressively enforce safe driving practices on our campus.
I appreciate your support and attention to these matters. Sincerely,
Dr. Robert Tremaglio
