Open Campus Policy Change
Starting in September, juniors and seniors will have open campus 
Read Mr. Parker's letter for the full policy
privileges. After arriving at school, they may leave campus during any free block. As long as they are in class on time, there will be no penalty. Of course, if a student is late there is a penalty. I will review this policy with seniors and juniors at the first class meetings in September.  Open campus is a privilege and not a right and can be taken away at any time if deemed necessary.
