    Hey Lancer Family! You must have an off-campus pass to leave school. The only exception is during lunch. Please check in at the office for a pass—you must have parental permission. If you are off-campus without a pass, you are truant! If you get sick during the school day, you should go to the health office. Please do not just go home!


    Personal Property on Campus--A reminder, Washoe County School District and McQueen High School are not responsible for items brought to campus that are lost or stolen.  To prevent loss of property, please remember to keep valuable items and money either securely locked, or even safer, leave them at home.  If you lose anything at school alert SRO right away.  Otherwise, keep it secure or at home!  


    Lancers, Please be good neighbors! As you go to lunch and afterschool please be respectful of the neighborhood just south of McQueen. (Northgate Village). Please leave personal property alone and do not leave litter in the neighborhood.


    Restricted Access during School Hours--An important reminder: For safety reasons students cannot have access to 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.


    Lancers: It is the belief of the Washoe county school district staff and police our Safety is everyone’s responsibility. If you see something Say Something! If you want to report, you can contact secret witness at 329-6666 or text to 274637. Enter tip725 + your message. Sometimes there are cash rewards available.


    Students, just a reminder that if you are not feeling well and need to go to the Health Office, you MUST get a pass from your teacher.  If it is during passing, please report to your next class and ask your teacher for pass.


    Free Afterschool Tutoring: 

    Lancers, it's a new semester!  Take charge of your grades! Do you need help with homework or a place to study after school? Feeling a little lost with that tricky Algebra concept or essay you’ve been working on? Maybe you just need to work on that big research project you have due next week. If you said yes to any of these questions, worry no more! Join us in the Career Center for some free tutoring every Thursday from 2:35-4:00. All students are welcome!
