New Changes About Food & Drinks Protocol

Cougars,

Due to safety concerns during transition times in the hallways, we will be making a few changes as it relates to food and drinks.  We will now follow these safety measures:
**No student will have water bottles, coffee cups, or any bottle carrying liquids out during hallway transition.  Also, no student will have food out during hallway transitions.  These items, even if brought from home, must be consumed in the café prior to leaving at the 8:05 a.m. bell or put in your book bags for later use.
**Unless a student has a specified doctor’s note on file, students must keep  water bottles etc. in your book bag / locker and may use them while at your locker during transition times.  Feel free to use our water fountains at any time during transition periods.
**Our PE staff will now have water stations set up so that you will have access to water during your PE block.
**If items are confiscated, they will be returned to you at the conclusion of the day from your grade level administrator.  You will also receive a lunch detention for this infraction.

Thank you for your continued support of HCMS as we continue to keep student safety at the forefront of our decision making.
