We want to remind everyone about our policy for party invitations that are given out by students to their friends. If a student wants to hand out invitations at school, they either need to give them to all of the students or just one gender (for example, if little Johnny wants to invite all of the boys in his class). Otherwise, please hand them out off-campus if only select students are invited. We care about all of our students and do not want to see feelings hurt in such an unnecessary way. Thank you for your consideration.
