Beginning Monday, March 5, 2018, backpacks will not be allowed in the high school, career center or HAAS. Any backpacks being brought into any of these buildings will be placed in a bin at the front door where they will kept until the end of the day. This includes drawstring type backpacks and purses or bags larger than a book. Gym or swimming clothing will be allowed to be brought in the buildings in clear plastic bags but must be stored in their lockers. This procedure is being put into place for the safety of students, staff and visitors based on recent incidents in the nation’s schools.
