Club Day

Many students have been sent home due to contact tracing.  Students who are wearing a mask at all times can avoid being sent home.  If anyone needs a mask, we have them in the office.  Stop by and get one!  They are free and available for anyone who wants one.

Spirit Week

We will have a football spirit week September 28-October 2nd! The house with the most participants each day will win 25 house points!  See below: 

I Want Someone to Know

We have a bullying reporting form for students.  This is a way for you to report anything you’d like to let the principals know.  We will immediately investigate the situation.  If you see something, say something!  The form can be accessed here.

Cooler weather- dress appropriately!

We are still going to be using the stadium bleachers in the morning for students to sit on days when it is not raining.  As the weather is now cooler in the mornings, please bring a jacket or hoodie with you so you aren’t cold.

Student Email

All student email is monitored. If you use it for reasons other than school or we find anything inappropriate, you will lose access to your Google account.

ICU- Our ICU program is up and going!  This program is not intended to be a “punishment”.  It’s an extra support designed to help students complete their work and learn the material. Put forth your best efforts and complete your work on time!  If you end up on the list repetitively, then before/after school tutoring or Saturday schools will be used to help get you caught up.
