Students be Phone Aware:The school year has been amazing so far!!! The one big hole we had last year is getting us again, phone theft. We live in an era where kids have nicer phones than their parents do = $600 for some phones.

|2. IPhones/Smart phones - Please do not flash your phone around for others to see|
|3. Make sure your phone is locked up or secure with you and make sure your locker is shut (sometimes they are not shut all the way).|

Safe ZonesA new program called “Safe Zones” has been implemented in all Washoe County Middle Schools due to the increase in gang activity, bullying, violence to students by other students, and lack of knowledge by the middle school student population of knowing where to go to receive help. We have Safe Zones in the library, counseling office, nurse, and main office. Student can access these locations in the morning and at lunch.
