A few reminders from the Deans’ Complex:
Students should use the crosswalks when crossing the streets, before and after school.
- It is extremely important to be on time to school and to all classes during the day. Please remember that a hall sweep pass is a tardy to class. When a student reaches a total of 6 tardies, he/she will begin receiving discipline consequences from the Deans’ Complex.
