From The Principal

Dear  Chieftain Families,


October is my favorite month of the year.  I love the weather, the changing colors, the Halloween celebration and the sports.  It’s been a great start to the fall as our athletics have been off to a strong start from girls swim and dive, girls golf, boys and girls cross country soccer, boys tennis, and the rest, we’ve had an awesome start!  We always think of football in the fall, and they’ve done well too!  The team will come home in a couple weeks for favorite week of the year, homecoming, on October 13th.  

We’ve noticed increasing numbers of students leaving without checking out with the office for early dismissals.  Per the student handbook, when an early dismissal is necessary, the parent/guardian must make contact with the school prior to the student leaving the building. Starting on Monday, October 2nd, we will have a sign out sheet in the main office.  Regardless of where a student is parked, if the student leaves without prior authorization and/or doesn’t sign out, it will be an unexcused absence.  A call after the fact will not excuse that absence.
