What's New?

Our juniors will take the ACT on Tuesday, February 23rd.  To help accommodate for the number of teacher proctors needed this year, we are going to have our 9th, 10th, and 12th grade students have a late start that day.  All 7th and 8th graders will come to school as normal that day.  A couple other details:

  • 9th, 10th, and 12th grade students will be let into the building at 11:55 a.m.
  • Students with 5A lunch will report to lunch, students with 5B lunch will report to class and then to lunch at 12:22 p.m. (your child should know which lunch he/she/they have)
  • 9th, 10th, and 12th grade students will follow their daily schedule as a virtual learning day that day.  These students should be using Schoology to log in and find their teachers' assignments for that morning.  Here is a link to our daily bell schedule.


Middle school students (grades 6-8): If you would like to work with a high school tutor, please come to Wednesday Help Sessions from 9:50-10:30 by scrolling down to Wednesday's activities and clicking on the link in the Middle School Links and Extra Activities.  Find out who the tutors are by watching their videos here: Meet the High School Tutors.  These videos are also posted in BAND and in the "Middle School Links and Extra Activities."
