DRESS CODE REMINDER!
With warm weather fast approaching, it is time once again to remind students that there is a dress code at EVHS and it needs to be followed. As fashion changes, there are a few things that need further clarification in our dress code that is in the student handbook students will receive the first week of school –this is not the entire dress code, but parts that are important. It is our hope that the information below will help you and your student dress appropriately for the educational environment.
ALL STUDENTS MUST WEAR THEIR ID BADGE WHILE AT SCHOOL!

At East Valley High School, we make student safety a priority. Incidents like the recent shooting tragedy in Connecticut, give us pause to review our safety plans and procedures. When we returned from Winter Break, we had a walk through with an expert on school security who made several recommendations. As a result of that opportunity we are instituting some new policies and making plans for improvements to our security.
Beginning Monday, January 28, 2013, all staff and students will be required to wear their school name/identification badges whenever they are in the building. Students will be required to wear their identification/ASB cards on a lanyard around their neck and we will be providing lanyards to all students on the 28th. Students who have misplaced their identification card can get one made in the Library free of charge. Beginning February 1, 2013, students who do not wear their identification will receive a warning, and then a detention.
Within the next week we will be replacing two security cameras outside and upgrading one inside the building.
In the near future, we will be changing the visitor entrance to the school during school hours. When the remodeling to make that occur is finished, we will inform you all how it will work.
We have several community members, parents, etc. who have keys for this building due to facilities usage outside of school hours. We are asking that anyone who uses this building be sure that the door locks behind you when you leave.
The more we work together, the safer we can make East Valley High School.
