This student handbook contains detailed information intended to communicate the district's educational and instructional goals and its expectations of our students. Parents and guardians are urged to read the handbook and help reinforce its policies at home.
"To assure an atmosphere conducive to learning and which also assures the safety and welfare of students and school personnel, it is necessary to balance carefully a student's responsibilities of good citizenship with individual rights. It is in an effort to preserve this balance that the school board has adopted the code of student’s responsibilities and rights described in this handbook."
