After School Wanderers – Please remind your middle schooler(s) that if they are in the school after school hours that they are here for a purpose, not to wander about! This often happens prior to and during basketball games. If they are here for the game, that is where they should be, not around the building. If they are found by staff….or by camera feed…to be in areas beside where the event that they are in the building for, this may warrant consequences including detentions and/or suspensions for trespassing. Thank you for your support as we strive to keep all safe, even after school!
