General Student Information
Bikes should be left in the bicycle racks provided and not near the pedestrian entrances to the school. This is necessary because of the shortage of outside space and the need for clear access for service and emergency vehicles. Bicycles are personal property and are not to be tampered with. Students found responsible for vandalizing bicycles will, at the very least, have unscheduled time restricted. If serious damage or injury occurs, the matter will be referred to the Hanover Police Department.
Students should check their email throughout the day for messages. If there is an emergency or the message is confidential, an office staff person will seek out a student immediately. Parents may leave lunches for students in the office.
Laser pointers should not be brought to Hanover High School unless the student can show a compelling need to use a pointer for academic purposes. Laser Pointers brought to school will be confiscated.
Lost and Found
The Lost and Found is kept in the Cafeteria. Unclaimed textbooks will be returned to appropriate departments at the end of each quarter. Articles not claimed after three weeks will be donated to a local non-profit.
The use of skateboards, longboards, and Razors/scooters as well as bicycle-riding on school property during the school day (7:30-3:30pm) is not allowed, especially when buses are loading and unloading.
There are several reasons why throwing snowballs is dangerous around a school:
- Snowballs can cause physical damage to persons and objects.
- Bystanders and pedestrians can be hit.
- A distracted motorist in front of the school could have a serious accident.
- Windows can be broken.
- Students can’t always predict where a snowball will land, how a “target” will react, or whether a snowball will hurt.
The consequences for throwing snowballs are as follows:
Formal, written warning and request that parents assist
Loss of unscheduled time for one week or other restrictive action if snowballs are thrown before or after school
Possible suspension from school; parent conferences at very least
Reports of students throwing snowballs at a moving vehicle will be turned over to the Hanover Police Department.
