School Announcements

April 4th, 2021

Good morning. We are very excited to have all students return for All In Person Learning tomorrow, April 5, 2021. Please remember that as we announced prior to Spring Break, doors to our building will open to students at 7:30am. Additionally, with having all students attend each day, we do need students to use their lockers to store backpacks, bags, coats, jackets, & other miscellaneous items.

You may need to review your account in Infinite Campus to ensure you know your locker number & combination. Please stop by your locker prior to the 1st Period to drop off any such items. You may then visit your locker before or after your Lunch Period. Then you can stop by your locker at dismissal at the end of the day.

Thank you for your cooperation with this process. In having all students in our building at the same time we want to ensure we are using our lockers for storage.

Thanks, and we look forward to seeing everyone tomorrow.
