Students are reminded not to walk on the grass in the front lawn when they come to school in the mornings and leave at the end of the day. They are to use the sidewalks. With the drought conditions, walking on the grass damages it. It may look dead, but is in fact merely dormant. Obviously, you can be on the grass on the playground out back.
All students entering the building must enter through the cafeteria doors. There will be a staff member supervising the cafeteria doors in the morning. In order to enter, before school, you must have a pass. No student is allowed in through the parking lot doors, this is to include band students.
