-Vaping becoming a number one issue in the High schools. At St. Laurence four students asked to leave when caught at school vaping.
One girl asked to leave because she tagged a bathroom. Mr Muting and school will not tolerate this behavior. Parents or students who hear about
improper actions should call the school so they can investigate.
-At last faculty meeting the presenter explained that the part of the brain that involves listening does not mature until the child is 25. Thus students are encouraged to check their e mails throughout the day for what they miss during oral announcements because they e mails in writing.
-Mr. Muting asked for questions.
One Parent: Are bathroom monitored?
Mr. Muting: Teachers do but 2 teachers go in to investigate when there is a problem. This is for the teacher's own safety and liability issues. Also if there has been a tip on an individual causing problems they investigate as a team.
A student from a team project was introduced and explained his fundraiser for TCBY on February 23. Parents were encouraged to order ice cream for their students to enjoy on February 23.
