With your assistance, together we will joust ahead and make this 2017-2018 school year the most productive ever. We highly recommend that you sign up for Parent Portal in guidance. Parent Portal allows you to see your teen’s grades in all classes as well as your teen’s attendance.

Student handbooks, which include school and district expectations, were distributed on the first day of school.  Parents are respectfully requested to review the handbooks with their students.

Drop-off and pick-up procedures:  Parents who drive their children to school should arrive in the staff/visitor parking lot no later than 8:35 a.m.; the pick-up time is no later than 4:15 p.m.

Students who drive must arrive at the designated parking lot no later than 8:30 a.m. Student drivers must complete the school driver safety course, the ALIVE AT 25 training, and complete the application prior to driving to school.  Permits will be issued on a first come/first served basis so student drivers must obtain the permit as soon as possible to avoid being denied permission to drive to school.  Parking permits must be obtained in person; mail-in registration does not include parking permits.
