Report cards were provided to students by their 4th period teacher on January 18th. If your student does not have a 4th period class they can pick up their report card in the guidance office. If they were absent they can get their report card from their 4th period teacher when they return. Be sure to ask your student to see their progress.
Students in 9th and 10th grade that earned an eligibility GPA of 3.0 or higher on their report card will have received an invitation to an Early College (formally Collegiate High School) information night.

Likewise, if you need help, please take a post-it and call the hotline for assistance.

UPDATED QUARANTINE INFORMATION
Health and Safety
Stay home if you are sick: We ask our families to keep children home if they exhibit any Covid-19 symptoms for the safety of our students and staff. It is the most important thing you can do to help us mitigate the spread of Covid-19 on our campus.
What do I do if someone in my home contracts the Covid-19 virus? Please call the principal at 321-952-5880 x24503 if your student, or someone living in your home, contracts the Covid-19 virus. If you are going to quarantine your student, we will help you determine the correct dates for quarantine.
Face coverings: Masks are strongly recommended, but are not required for students in grades 7-12, employees, guests, volunteers, and vendors.
Clinic Policy: During the pandemic, any student sent home from our school clinic with Covid-19 related symptoms must quarantine for 10 calendar days unless (1) the student receives a negative Covid-19 test and brings the printed result to the school nurse or, (2) the student's family physician diagnoses the student's condition as something other than Covid-19 and writes a note allowing the student to return to school.
