The first semester has ended and we are now almost mid-point in the third quarter. In front of us are SOL tests and Advanced Placement Exams. For many students, this is a challenging period of time. We have after school tutoring available by both teachers and students that we hope students take advantage of. Appointments can also be made for early morning tutoring and remediation through your son's or daughter's teachers.
Student parking spaces will be extremely limited for the foreseeable future due to construction of the new school. We've instituted the following changes for the 2012-2013 school year. Seniors, travel students, and co-op students will be given preference for obtaining a parking permit. Permits were re-sold for the second semester. Students had to submit a new application in order to obtain a permit for the second semester. Attendance (including tardiness and early outs) affect the students' ability to obtain a pass for the second semester. Students who have received 4 or more tardies during the first semester WERE NOT eligible to buy a parking permit for the second semester.
Students who receive 3 tardies to school will lose their parking privilege for 5 days.
Students who receive a fourth tardy will have their parking privileges revoked for the remainder of the semester.
Parking slots are numbered and students must display the numbered pass everyday. Failure to do so will result in vehicles being booted. If a vehicle is booted more than 2 times, that student will lose his/her parking privilege for the remainder of the semester.
We will institute these same restrictions for the 2013-14 school year.
With Prom approaching, I would like to remind you that there is a dress and dance code that will be enforced. Any lewd dancing, including but not restricted to crotch to crotch or crotch to butt dancing is prohibited. Students, by signing the dance form, have been warned. Students will be removed from the dance and parents will be notified.
Lastly, with Spring and nice weather approaching, I ask that you review the attendance and dress code portions of the Code of Conduct with your son/daughter. Stafford County Public Schools does not recognize senior skip day. Excessive absences could affect end of year senior activities such as the senior class picnic, the senior formal dinner dance and ultimately, commencement.
The dress code is specific with what is accepted and what isn't. I ask that you look it over and if you have any questions, please contact the school and your son's/daughter's assistant principal for any concerns or clarification.
