Week One Bell Schedule

The bell schedule for the first week of school will be slightly different than the regular schedule for the 2022-2023 school year. On Monday, August 8, all students will report to their Homeroom or B2. A student's B2 will appear on their schedule as Homeroom or "HR" and will list their teacher and room number. The bell schedule for Monday, August 8, will be altered to accommodate this change. In addition, Homeroom (or B2) will be longer the first week of school to accommodate class meetings to be held each day and to distribute student devices.
