  • ATTENTION: Please do not send school-wide emails without administrator approval. This includes game changes, plate sales, general announcements, etc.
  • REPORT CARDS - In reviewing student report cards, there are class after class that doesn't have a comment. Please know that comments are an expectation to provide parents feedback, good or bad.
  • If students communicate suicidal or homicidal intentions to you, your FIRST point of contact should be an administrator IMMEDIATELY. Do NOT email administration. Call for them in the front office and inform staff that it is an emergency.
  • Teachers, mark your calendars! We will need you for remediating and re-testing at the end of the year. Please make plans to be available to help out. We usually see HUGE gains in proficiency with strategic planning!!! (After EOGs and on the work days for retesting)
