Unfortunately due to the power outage we have fallen behind. If your child has earned at least two D’s or one F, had behavior challenges such as bullying, defiance, vaping, suspensions, etc, or has had an attendance problem with excessive tardies or absences your child may be on the list and not allowed to attend the dance. Students may earn their way off the list through improved grades, behavior, and attendance.
