PRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE

This handbook is a simple guide to help ensure student success. Opportunities abound for students willing to work, get involved in extracurricular activities and/or athletics and make the commitment to focus on their education.


In order to maintain a safe and orderly school students are required to follow the Moore County Schools Student Code of Conduct. Two main concepts to remember are:

(1) The rules are not new. They are the same ones you learned since kindergarten.

(2) The consequences are strictly enforced.
I look forward to working with students and staff to make this year one of the best yet. We can all work together to be Viking Strong!!!
-Mr. McCormick
SCHOOL DAY

The school day for students begins at 8:40 a.m. Students who arrive to class after 8:40 are tardy. Students are not to arrive on campus before 7:45 a.m. and must be off campus by 4:00 p.m. unless directly supervised by a staff member.


“The guiding mission of the North Carolina State Board of Education is that every public school student will graduate from high school, globally competitive for work and postsecondary education and prepared for life in the 21st Century.”
Union Pines High School’s focus is to provide a safe and orderly environment in which learning takes place without disruption. We encourage our students and their parents to share in our efforts to create a safe learning environment.

Union Pines’ students will “graduate globally competitive.

Student Academic Support

As a learning community we believe that all students can be successful with support, perseverance, and dedication. A high school diploma and a successful life after Union Pines is attainable for all students.


Our academic staff is ready and willing to help any student who desires either extra help or extended opportunities for learning.

Student Quest for Success

Always take responsibility for your learning by staying aware of your grades, assignments, and attendance. Attendance in class is a tremendous factor for successful students.


Communicate with your teacher! Ask for help if needed during or after class. You are your best advocate and getting to know your teacher reinforces student confidence in the classroom.
Stay organized! Build a portfolio for yourself. Save important papers, use an agenda to keep up with important dates and keep a record of your grades.

Academic information
Academic Integrity

Union Pines students are expected to hold themselves to the highest standards of academic integrity. The honor code is expected of students as they work in and out of the classroom by exhibiting good citizenship and integrity.


Students who give or receive information of any kind during a test are cheating and this behavior is unacceptable. Furthermore, the giving or receiving of information on other work, unless prior authorization is given, also constitutes cheating. Finally, work taken from the Internet or another source, without giving source credit, is plagiarism and is considered cheating.
A first offense will result in a grade of zero and a parent will be contacted. The teacher will also notify administration and a master list of students will be kept.
A second offense, not necessarily in the same class, will result in a grade of zero, and a conference with the teacher, assistant principal, and parent.
Second offenses may also result in removal from honor organizations, class and club office, scholarship consideration, etc. No student who falls in this category will be recognized with special honors at graduation. Two offenses for cheating will also result in automatic expulsion from the Honor Societies.

CHECK OUT POLICY:

Your student ID card serves as your library cards. Check out period for fiction and non-fiction is 3 weeks; you may renew as needed. Reference books are too expensive to be checked out; however, you may copy the pages you need for your research. Please follow copyright privileges.



OVERDUES:

Students with overdue material are not allowed to check out materials until the overdue materials are returned to the library. There are no fines for overdue books. All students are required to return all library materials and/or pay all lost book fees at the end of each school year. Graduating students are required to return all library materials and/or pay all fines before they graduate.



SERVICES:

All computers are for school activities ONLY. Color copies are 10 cents per page. Students are required to have a pass from their teacher if they come to the library from class. Library passes are required at lunch time.



CHROMEBOOKS:

You and your parent/guardian must sign a permission form for each school year in order to take your Chromebook home. You will receive your Chromebook in homeroom at the beginning of each school year and return it to your homeroom at the end of the school year. Any monies for damages will be added to your student fees. Remember to handle your Chromebook gently. The monitor screen is fragile and is $100 to replace, if cracked or broken.



LIBRARY ETIQUETTE:

You are expected to be studious in our library. Quiet respectful conversation is encouraged for collaboration on projects. Bottle your drinks with a snug top to prevent spills. Please eat BEFORE coming to the library. Food brings bugs. Bugs and books never mix.



INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY:

We are happy to offer students the opportunity to use computer technology and the MCS network system to access information on the Internet for educational study. MCS has an Internet filter in place in accordance with Federal guidelines.



ACCEPTABLE USE POLICY

All students are required to follow the MCS Acceptable Use Policy. This policy is in place to provide an optimal educational environment for students. Student passwords are private and should not be shared with others. Students may not download music, software from the Internet, instant message, or access sites blocked by the Internet filter. Anyone engaged in these activities will have his/her computer privileges suspended and may be subject to disciplinary action.

Computers are available for academic study before and after school. Distance learning classes offered at UPHS by the North Carolina Virtual Public High School include courses not offered for classroom instruction. See your guidance counselor for more information.
