METRO WEEKLY UPDATES

family updates

November 14, 2022

Fall Break Nov. 21-25

Metro will be closed next week for fall break. All Metro staff will be on break along with students, so please expect delays if you leave a message (voicemail or email). We hope students enjoy a restful week and return ready to finish the semester strong.

Lost & Found

Before fall break, please have your student check the lost and found for any items they have misplaced. There are water bottles, lunch bags, gloves, notebooks and other items waiting to be found and the hallway hooks are filled with unclaimed coats/jackets.

School ID & Dress Code

During colder months, students should layer with sweaters/jackets without hoods; hoodies are not part of dress code. Please label coats with the student's name so it can be returned if misplaced. Wearing the school-issued ID is also part of dress code and expected daily. By putting the ID in their backpack in the evening, students can ensure it is on hand to wear every morning.

STEM Expo Dec. 3

The LEAD STEM Expo is December 3 from 9:30am-2pm at the Eastland Career Center on Hamilton Road and is designed to help students explore STEM fields. If you'd like to learn more or register to attend, visit  https://www.leademerging.org/expo.

Please monitor your child's online behavior by setting time limits, following their social media accounts, or requiring their device be left in a designated place (not their bedroom) overnight.

Student IDs

We have received the bulk of our student IDs and will distribute them to middle school students in Advisory this week. Students should keep their ID in their backpack each evening to have it on hand for school every morning. IDs are to be worn on the Metro lanyard provided as part of dress code and security measures. It is also to be used to check in/out during school hours. If your child does not receive an ID, please have them notify their Advisor.

Student Check-In/Out

If you are picking up a student before dismissal, please help us with security measures by having your ID ready to show at the desk. Remember that only adults on your approved list can pick up your student and please avoid pick up between 2pm-2:30pm, which is a busy time prior to dismissal. We appreciate your cooperation.

One Chip Challenge

Several students have brought Paqui chips to school to participate in the "One Chip Challenge." The chip has spices that include reaper peppers and scorpion peppers and is spicy enough that even a small piece can result in crying, vomiting, and significant stomach cramps later in the day. We are asking for your help in preventing students from bringing these to school. The challenge is impacting teaching and learning for many students, and some are having to leave school early due to stomach issues. Please have a conversation with your child about this and the importance of responsible decision-making.
