Resetting Expectations - Parents Please Read
Good afternoon parents and guardians of JL Long. This week we will be resetting our expectations as International Baccalaureate learners in a World school by making sure we are principled. We are refreshing our system for students who arrive late to school or classes and violate dress code. Our goal is to proactively minimize disruptions throughout the day. As principled and caring learners we act with dignity and respect for ourselves and others. We also model being principled by being on time to school with our binder in our hands at all times so we are prepared for a great day of learning. We are team IB and we all need to be in this together! If your child is out of dress code you will receive a phone call from one of our staff members. Parents thank you so much for your help and understanding in this matter.
Buenas tardes padres y guardianes de JL Long. Esta semana estaremos reiniciando nuestras expectativas como estudiantes de una escuela Bachillerato Internacional asegurarandonos de que estemos dentro de nuestras expectativas. Estamos refrescando nuestro sistema para los estudiantes que llegan tarde a la escuela o a sus clases y violan el código de vestimenta. Nuestro objetivo es de reducir al mínimo las interrupciones durante el día. Como estudiantes de principios y de comprensivos tenemos que actuar con dignidad y respeto por nosotros mismos y los demás. También modelamos siendo de principios, llegando a tiempo a la escuela con nuestra carpeta en nuestras manos en todo momento para estar preparados para un gran día de aprendizaje. Somos un equipo de IB y todos tenemos que estar juntos en esto! Si su hijo esta fuera de uniforme recibira una llamada telefónica de uno de nuestros miembros del personal. Padres muchas gracias por su ayuda y comprensión en este asunto.

Lost and Found
“Lost and Found” is cleaned out at the end of the first week of every month. Regardless of when the item was brought in, all items that are not picked up by the end of the week will be donated.
