Middle School Updated Lunch Times 
 Now that we’ve made it through the first few weeks of school, we’re making some small adjustments to our lunch schedules. Our 6th graders will now eat at 10:45, joining our 8th grade students. Our 7th grade students will now be eating lunch at 10:15 each day. This will help us accommodate the larger class sizes in the cafeteria while ensuring that we have sufficient admin support for each lunch block. Thank you for supporting our students with their updated lunch times.
Update Information for Bus Riders 

Over the next 2 weeks all Bus Riders will be receiving a bus pass in the form of a sticker on their ID. As of October 2nd, students who are not registered for transportation services will not be allowed to ride the bus. Distribution of stickers will be happening during advisories over the next 2 weeks. Please help us by reminding students to ensure that they are registered, which can be confirmed with us at the front office. 

 Please emphasize the importance of keeping their IDs on as drivers are aware that students will be receiving their bus pass stickers. If a student loses their ID they can purchase a new one for $5 at the front office and we will ensure the bus pass sticker is reapplied.

Dress Code Reminder 

We have included the Dress Code for you to review.  We have seen shorts, sweat pants and shirts that do not follow the Dress Code and therefore they will be receiving consequences.

Please make sure your child is dressed according to the YES Prep Southwest Dress Code.
