Hallway Expectations

Students will keep their hands, feet, and objects to themselves, walk on the right side of the hallway,

and use zero level voices.


Students will not carry backpacks at B. McDaniel. Each student is asked to carry a zipper binder.

This should be sufficient to house their planners, work, and supplies.


Planners are provided for each student on the first day of school. Parents will be expected to replace the planner if lost for a fee of $5. The planners are used as a communication tool between teachers and parents. Its core purpose is to teach students organizational skills to help them succeed in their academic goals. It is an important life skill that we, as a staff, want to foster.

Thank you for your support,
