Dear MIHS Islander Families:
Onward into 2018. I am looking forward to getting last year behind us and starting new in 2nd Semester 2018. I want to bring matters to your attention:
Registration for 2018-19 School Year: February is the time of the year for students to get registered for next year's classes. They will have the opportunity to think about what classes they wish to register for next year. Pay close attention to the Counseling website for details. There will be a few changes this year to help make the process more helpful when students select the courses they wish to sign up for. When selecting courses, we want students to be careful about their choices because this is how we build our Master Schedule of courses and move staffing around to meet student needs as best as possible.
Threats to School Consequences: Previously we met with about 50 parents to talk about the threats to our school. Parents in this group asked that I send you more specific details about what can happen if a student makes threats (assault) to the school. We have definitely taken a closer view of what we can do as a staff to help students understand the importance of creating a school that is safe for all to attend. Whenever a student makes a threat to a school even if it is a joke, we do take serious disciplinary action and the student is reported to the police for making the threat which can be a felony violation in the law. Moving forward, I hope our students all recognize how disruptive this behavior can be on a school environment and help each other to promote a positive safe school environment. Attached is the information that students will get in their Bridges class March 7th. Thank you for taking the time to share with your student the importance of keeping our school safe. Here is some information below that might help guide your conversation if you chose to with your student.
Thank you for your continued support of our students as they continue to focus on their education through the new year.
Vicki Puckett Principal
