A few important reminders – a guest permission form is required for non-Memorial students; forms are available in all the neighborhood offices and must be returned to the Wisconsin Office by Wednesday, February 15th. Attendance this week will determine a student's eligibility to purchase a ticket for the dance. If their name is on the No Admit List, they will not be able to buy a ticket.

Parking Lot at Arrival and Pick Up
We appreciate everyone’s patience during construction and want to remind you of some things that will keep people safe and keep traffic in our parking lot flowing as well as possible:
- The row closest to the building should not be used by any vehicle except construction vehicles.
- The second row is one way east to west and the third row is one way west to east.
- Please refrain from driving along the crosswalks.
- Please do not block traffic while stopping to drop students off. The drop off area is on the building side of the row that is one way going east to west. Or you can pull down the 4th or 5th aisle and drop your student off near a crosswalk.
- Please do not park in staff parking, on crosswalks, or in handicapped parking without an appropriate permit.
- Students must have a permit to park in student parking which are the spaces with white lines on either side.
We want to keep the parking lot safe and functional which can be more difficult when the weather is bad and the lot is covered in snow. We have and will continue to ticket our parking lot. Thank you.

Drop Off and Pick Up
Please be aware that students should not be dropped off or picked up in the Jefferson Parking Lot (near the Fieldhouse). During construction, this area is our designated area to drop off and pick up our students who require specialized transportation. We need the space to load and unload students who are in wheelchairs and it is important that we keep the area clear of other vehicles. We appreciate your assistance in this.
No Admit List
The No Admit List is now in effect for sports events and school dances. Impacted students and parents/ guardians will receive an email each Monday if they had 5+ tardies and/or 2+ unexcused absences during the preceding week. Students on the No Admit list cannot attend any sport events during the week they are on the No Admit List and must have 4 or less tardies and 1 or less unexcused absences across a school week to not appear on the following week’s No Admit List. Information regarding the No Admit List process can be found on this information sheet. If a student believes there are extenuating circumstances that impact their attendance for a given week, they should reach out to their Neighborhood Assistant Principal to discuss these concerns prior to purchasing tickets and/or attending a school event to determine if an exception to the No Admit List can be made.
Safety and Security
We want our schools to be safe and welcoming learning environments. Building security, incident response and threat assessments are vital components as well. Please review the letters below for more information:
