The staff of Mt. Nebo Junior High School are proud to announce a renewed commitment to ensuring that class time is used effectively and efficiently. In that spirit, we have adopted a new set of procedures that will begin the second term of school. We are calling these procedures: Operation START on Time!—the acronym stands for “Safe Transitions And Reduced Tardies.” This change is a result in part due to feedback from a recent student focus group. In that group, students expressed the need for a change in our current class transition policy that would enable them to get to class in a timely manner without needing to “push through crowds in the hallways.” We also feel that this change will make our school safer, due to increased hallway supervision, and allow us to maximize academic time in the classroom by minimizing distractions tardies cause teachers and fellow students.
