Practice Opening a Combination Lock Before School Starts

Students are issued their own locker in which to store books, supplies, and personal belongings. To open that locker, they have to use a combination lock, which may seem difficult at first, but practice makes permanent.


PLEASE DO NOT SHARE YOUR LOCKER COMBINATION WITH YOUR FRIENDS!

Arrive to Class ON TIME....EVERYTIME!

You will have 4 minutes passing time in the hall between each class period. It's ok to talk to friends in the hall, but please be sure to manage your time. Clocks are equipped with countdown timers as well as music playing at the 1 minute marks to help students manage their time. Being tardy can affect your citizenship and could prevent you from going to school events such as dances, sporting events, after school clubs, and field trips. Consequences are assigned for excessive tardies that include, but not limited to detentions.


When is my lunch?

To determine which lunch block you have, check the room number of your Seminar Class on your schedule or in PowerSchool.


For 7th grade, if L is in front of the room number (L220), you will have Lunch A. If the L is after the room number (220L), you will have Lunch B.


For 8th Grade, if the L is in front of the room number (L220), you will have Lunch C. If the L is after the room number (220L), you will have Lunch D.
