Medications In Nurses Office - Attention parents/guardians and students, the school will not store any medications over the summer break.

Fines – Students, NOW is the time to pay for any overdue fines. Log into Infinite Campus and check under the “Fees” tab.

You are responsible for knowing the rules and keeping yourself academically eligible.

Message from Technology - As we approach the end of the school year, now would be a great time to bring your laptop to the Tech Support Center to have it repaired if it is damaged in any way to avoid the rush at the end of the school year. SENIORS, in particular, should bring their damaged laptops in as soon as possible to have them repaired before they are required to turn them in at the end of the year. Seniors not having their laptop repaired and paid for will not receive a diploma.
