Olathe North Community,
The Olathe North administration has determined that we will revert back to a traditional schedule with four individual lunch times for the first four days of second semester. This is to serve as an opportunity to share expectations for all students about the value of Eagle Halftime (EHT). This will be upsetting to the students. It will be a great reminder of why EHT is important academically and mentally for our students. Throughout the first four days of the semester we will remind students that EHT is for: Lunch, Academic Support, Club Opportunities, and Emotional Well-being. Through first semester many of our students used this time appropriately and responsibly. However, some students were using it inappropriately and they would walk through halls disrupting students getting help from teachers. Acting very disrespectful to staff when given simple directions. We also have several students that are leaving trash throughout the building. I have attached a copy of the schedule that we will be following for the first four days back. Students will report to the commons and remain their for their specific lunch time based on what class they have for 5th hour second semester. I would appreciate it if you would visit with your students on how they are using their time during EHT. Help them understand the purpose of EHT and why the district supported a 50 minute opportunity for students in the middle of the day.
