Attention all students, beginning today and running through Thursday, there will ACCESS testing in the small gym. Anytime you’re approaching that hallway please remain quiet and respectful of the test takers. In addition, for 8th graders who use that small hallway by the locker rooms to get to the F-Wing, particularly Mr. Malkasian’s room and/or the Health room, please go around toward the front office to access the F-wing until further notice. For students who have PE classes, please silently – SILENTLY – walk directly to your respective locker-room and be mindful not to linger in the hallway for an extended period of time. Again, please steer clear of the small gym and that hallway until further notice. There will be no bells today.
