Students give input for handbook change Board embraces student proposed handbook changes By Tom Merchant Sentinel Tribune WWG -- Principal Bill Richards gave the beard a written proposal to change the student handbook for the 2004-2005 school year. The additions to the book under Dress Code (dressing appropriately for School) would include: There shall be No advertisement of tobacco or drugs or any offensive or harassing words or pictures. Alcohol, religion, race, color, gangs, obscene or suggestive language, sexual innuendoes example, Playboy, Hooters. No bare midriff (shirts must be below the belly button) No visible undergarments (boxers, bra straps, underwear). No low cut shirts, strap- less, halter or tube tops. Shorts and skirts appropriate for academic setting. Richards said the changes were pro- posed by a group of students. The board felt the changes were very appropriate and gave their approval for the changes.

He told the board they have budgeted considerably more for the coming year. Woelber noted the luhch fund has been much better this year, attributing it to stricter collections and not letting individuals to get to far behind before attempting to collect. On buildings and grounds Woelber told the board they have budgeted $32,000 for tuck pointing of the 1939 high school addition. At Walnut Grove new windows will be installed on the south side of the south wing of the ele- mentary school. This is the first year of a four year plan to replace windows in both elementary wings.

Principal Paul Olson talked about some changes in the student handbook for the middle school. He said they would like to change the eligibility rules. The change would give students a oe week grace period when they become ineligible due to academic defi- ciency.
