-No oversized shorts/pants worn low on hips;
-No hats;
-No excessive and/or large jewelry/make-up; and
-No t-shirts with inappropriate advertising, language, or pictures.

Tardies
Parents, I emailed you this weekend about needing help with our morning tardies. We had an extraordinary high number of tardies Monday with 78. Tuesday was a bit better with 60. The good news is that we only had 32 today. My goal is to have no more than 15 tardies each morning. Thank you to those who have made an extra push to get to school a few minutes earlier. I need your continued help so that we can achieve our goal of only 15 tardies. It is so important that your children are at school and ready to learn at the beginning of class.

Flu Season
Nurse Campbell reminds us that if a student has had a fever, vomiting, or diarrhea in the last 24 hours they cannot come to school until the student is symptom free for 24 hours (without the administration of medication). Any medications that students need to take must be given directly to the nurse by an adult and may not be carried by students.

As always, please visit our website and online calendar at hpafortworth.com.
