We are putting together a packet and getting it ready to mail out soon. In this packet there are several pieces of important information. Please look over your student's census information and correct any information that needs to be updated. Regardless if information needs to be updated or not, please sign and return the forms on Back to School night (August 16) or the first day of school.
Student's schedules are available on Infinite Campus. Please either print out your schedule or download it to your phone/iPad. We are not printing out schedules at school. There will not be any schedule changes unless there is an actual mistake of a class that you did not sign up for or you need a prerequisite. Reminder sophomore and juniors will keep the same locker they have had since freshmen year. Seniors will not have a locker unless you request one. You can stop in the office and talk to Katie to request a locker. Freshmen will see their locker number and combo on their printed schedule in the upper left hand corner above the actual schedule.
Transportation - Bus schedules, pickup times and locations, can be found in Infinite Campus.
