The administration and staff cannot approve of any profanity in or around the school. Disciplinary action will be taken when any student is caught using profanity. Repeated misconduct of this nature will lead to in-school suspension or temporary out-of-school suspension. Any profanity directed at a staff member or administrator will result in a temporary out-of-school suspension.
Counseling service is available to all students. Many student problems, concerning both the student's school and personal life, can be helped by counseling with a competent person. The school counselor or the student's teacher will be happy to try to help him with any of these problems. Counseling appointments can be made by requesting a pass from the teacher, the office personnel, or the school counselor.
All dances are exclusively for students who attend Oblock Junior High. Dances are held on Friday nights from ​7:00 - 9:00 p.m​. and are listed on the school calendar. Any parent picking up a son/daughter should plan on arriving at ​8:45 p.m.​, as the dance will promptly end at 9:00 p.m. Students must be present in school the day of a dance in order to attend the dance. Discussion often arises as to what is appropriate to wear to a school dance. As a general rule, students should follow the dress code as written in the ​Student Code of Conduct​. However, some exceptions may be made depending on the theme of the dance. Guidelines were established through a discussion with the members of Student Council, the PTSA, and the Administration. Please review these with your child before each dance.
