Very truly yours,
Jim Lavender, Superintendent and Acting Principal

Please be advised that the late bus will run at 4:15 pm during the 2022-23 school year. There is no longer a 5:45 pm late bus.
School Lunches will cost $4.00
The federal government has ended free school meal benefits. School lunches will cost $4.00 for the 2022-2023 school year. If you feel that you may be eligible for meal benefits, applications are posted on the school website under the food service page or you may request one by calling the food service department at 856-467-3300 x4226 or 4227. You can easily access this application by clicking HERE.
Teacher Start Times/Bell Schedule
This school year high school teachers will report at 7:29 am and be dismissed at 2:44 pm during a regular school day. Student arrival/dismissal times are unchanged. The reason for the slight adjustment is to ensure better alignment with middle school teacher arrival/dismissal times.
High School Construction
The high school has several projects under construction since last month and we are happy to report that steady progress is being made on the new Student Center and Wellness Center (formerly known as the North Media Center), new science lab in the 100 wing and plenty of HVAC upgrades. We apologize for the inconvenience construction has had on our staff and visitors but we are excited to see the completion of these projects in time for the start of the school year. We will keep our school community updated as the project continues.
Schoology Access Codes
Personalized letters and directions will be sent via School Messenger to all parents of all incoming 7th graders, Logan 9th graders, and new students during the week of August 8th.
