Parents and Guardians:
We have had an amazing Homecoming week! Our SBO and class officers organized a Powder Puff football game that had over 80 players and a 1000+ fans. The put on a car show, movie night, food trucks, tailgating and the Dance to come on Saturday. Thanks for all the great work student leaders!
Next week each of our fall sports have games after school, (See calendar attached) along with other activities by our clubs and organizations.
I do have a dress code concern that I would like to share with you. Some of our students are dressing in clothes that are considered Gang attire. Often students are following this dress trend for no other reason but for looks. However, some are wearing the clothes because they affiliate with a certain group or gang. No matter why they are wearing the clothes it is against Hunter High dress code and could possible put the student or others at risk. My job is to protect all students and I will not allow this dress attire. I ask that you as parents watch what your student is wearing and have a conversation with them if needed. We will call parents and send students home if they are out of dress code.
Some examples of improper dress is wearing the same color shirt/pants/shoes. Usually this is all Blue, Red, or Black. Included with solid colored clothes, students might wear a braided belt with a buckle that has Old English letters or a number on it. You can search the net for more specific examples of gang attire.
I wanted to address tardies and truancy as well. We are very close to 90% attendance for the month of September. We reward students if we can reach that goal for each month. The largest number of tardies happen during 1st period and after lunch. Please speak to your student and share with them the importance of being to school on-time so that they are more successful each class.
You can view their attendance and grades using the parent portal at: https://portal.graniteschools.org/LoginPolicy.jsp
We also passed out mid-terms today so ask your student to show you their progress and celebrate their successes.
