September 26, 2018

Decatur implemented new school policies on August 20 to combat tardiness, including a warning bell and a limit on tardies. Assistant Principal Wesley Hatfield said that he hopes these new school policies will decrease the amount of students who are late to class or who are skipping. When Hatfield graduated from Decatur in 1999, they had a warning bell, but they stopped it when they switched to a 7-period schedule.
