Thoughts from Principal Hogan

Welcome Open Doors Students

We cannot wait to see our returning and new students. The summer has been great, but we are excited about the 2022-2023 school year.

Open Doors is a unique learning experience for 11th and 12th grade students that focuses on student demonstration of competencies rather than completion of specific courses. This year, Open Doors was moved to classroomm 11 and 12 on the west side of the building.

We look forward to seeing everyone in a couple of weeks!

Open Doors Orientation Information

Welcome back!

We are so excited to see you all again and eager to meet our students that will be new to Open Doors this year.

Here are some important Start Up details:

**If you have not returned your chromebook from last year, you will need to do that by August 17.**


Aug 30-Sept 1 - Parent/Student Open House

You will come see our new classrooms, check out your new laptop, get a student ID and bus pass. You will also sign up for your regular lab day/time and join your new Remind group.

This will be Open House drop-in style with a presentation about the Competency Pathway/Diploma about half way through each session. Parents are highly encouraged to attend with your student, if possible.

If you would like to be there for the Competency presentation, please make sure you are in one of the Open Doors classrooms at 11:00/2:00. Returning students will go to your previous teachers' new classroom. New students can join either classroom (see the video linked below).

Sept 1: Make ups (10-12 or 1-3)

This video will explain where you should go when you come to campus. See ya real soon!
