No HATS or HOODS Reminder
Attention Students: The information below is in the Student Handbook. Please take note that our Board has approved this, therefore we need to enforce it. Hats & hoods are to be removed upon entering the building. Please put your hats into your lockers and do not keep them on you throughout the day. The student handbook explicitly states that hats should be stored in the locker during school hours. If you are caught wearing a hat or hoodie in the building, it may be confiscated by teachers and administration and will be turned over to either you or a parent.

Many students ask why they are not allowed to wear hats or hoodies, and it simply comes down to 1. Safety 2. Gangs & 3. Respect. We have many cameras in the building and it is imperative that we see people’s faces should anything occur. Additionally, certain gangs wear hats in a variety of manners. The School Board has stated that we are to have no tolerance of this behavior. Finally, it is disrespectful in most circumstances for hats or hoodies to be worn indoors. There is plenty of information on the web pertaining to etiquette of wearing hats or hoodies indoors. Simply put, hats & hoods will not be permitted to be worn in the building.
*Keep electronic devices off and out-of-sight (including MP3 players, cell phones, wires, and earbuds)
*Remove hats and hoods upon entering the building
*Store hats and coats in the locker during school hours
*Be on time.

Consequence for Wearing Hats/Hoodies in School
When a student is caught wearing a hoodie or hat in school, the item is confiscated and turned into the office for safe-keeping. The consequences are as follows:
1st Offence: Student may pick it up at the end of the day.
2nd Offence: Parent must pick up the item in the office.
3rd & Subsequent Offences: Parent pick-up and student will receive an In-School Suspension.

IMPORTANT: Past Due Fees & Fines
The end of the year field trips are coming soon! In order to be a part of this fun and exciting field trip, ALL fees and fines must be paid in full. If you owe any school fees, you would have received a statement with your child’s report card. If you can not find this paper, or you are not sure how much you owe, please either check your Infinite Campus Parent Portal or contact the Phoenix Middle School office. If you owe a larger amount, we can set up a payment plan for you. Please contact the Phoenix Middle School office for more information.

Park & Rec – Comet Attack Volleyball League

FREE Family Community Night at Darien Library
The Darien Public Library is planning another free community night at the library. This event is for people of all ages and will be held on Thursday April 19, from 5:15 to 7:00 p.m. Our theme for the evening will be DOGS. We have invited the Lakeland Animal Shelter to bring some dogs for us to meet, and we have invited a trainer from Pet Smart as well. This should be a fun evening! We’ll provide fun and prizes for the children who attend. Just like we did at our previous family night, we are planning to offer a free dinner as part of the program. To register, please call us at 882-5155 or stop in to the circulation desk while you’re at the library. We hope that you’ll be able to join us!

Morning Drop-Off
Students, if you are getting dropped off in the front of the building in the morning before 7:30am, you need to walk around to the back of the school. It would be better if you were dropped off at the back of the school and not in front of the school. You can only use the front entrance after 7:30, when it is raining or the temperature is negative Zero with the wind chill.
