Excessive Tardies Detentions: Being on time to every class is important!

In an effort to encourage students to be on time to every class, we first warn students with excessive tardies and then if it continues, students are assigned a one hour after school detention.

By students getting to class on time, it decreases the class disruptions and the teacher having to stop instruction to let students enter. Being on time is also a life skill we want our students to learn.

Driver's Education through The Link

If your family is starting to think about driver's education, please visit for information about classroom, online, and behind the wheel education. Students must be at least 15 years old to begin.
