If you go to CVS or any other local business during lunch, before or after school, please use respectful language and behavior, and clean up after yourselves. Failure to do so may result in our students being banned from that and other businesses. Please Lancers be good neighbors!

    Restricted Access during School Hours--An important reminder, for safety reasons students are not allowed to access any areas of the football field or other athletic fields, gyms, and facilities during school hours, including lunch.  Please remain out of these areas at all times.  Thank you.
