Mrs. Murphy’s Weekly Updates: Here


Mrs. Murphy

The new sign in machines will be coming for Monday. They will not be permanently fixed on the wall until we decide which placement is the best for traffic flow. Students are expected to sign in by scanning the small barcode on the back of their photo ID cards.


Ms. Hager

We are trying to extend lunch to a 40 minute period in light of the congestion in the Dining Hall. This will take time since we have to rearrange the schedule but cannot be in school for Ms. Pfeiffer to update the system. Secondly, the ottomans in the lounges are temporary; the tables will be here soon and the ottomans will then be moved. Thank you for your patience.


Dr. Barovero and Mr. Walz

AP tests will be optional for seniors this year. If a senior chooses to opt-out they must email Mr. Walz by November 15th or else they will have to pay a fee to the college board for late cancellation. For any other student not signed up for an AP whole would like to take the AP test, email Mr. Walz by November 15th or there will be a late sign up fee. Please include a relevant subject (e.g. AP opt-out) in the subject line.


Judiciary

Improper usage of technology during class will be punishable by a major. This includes texting, surfing the internet, or doing anything not related to the class (even checking your email).
