Principals' Corner

Parents, our students have made it halfway through the first marking period. Please remind your children to check the Home Access Center (HAC) with you at least once per week. Please DO share their login and password information with your child(ren) and with all guardians who can help monitor grades. Remind them that grades are weighted--meaning some grades are worth much more than others--yet all grades count. A zero or a failing grade can be detrimental to a student's overall grade, so they need to see teachers for tutorials for extra help if needed. We want our students to be successful and to advocate for themselves in their education by asking questions in class, going to get additional help if needed, and scheduling study groups with friends. Our staff looks forward to partnering with you in your child's education!

Watch D.O.G.S. Kickoff Meeting

We will have our annual Watch D.O.G.S. kick-off meeting on September 19th from 6:00-7:00pm. Dads and kids are invited to join us in the cafeteria for FREE pizza and drinks. You can learn about the program and sign-up to volunteer.


We will also be sharing information about a new program we are kick starting this year - All Pro Dad.

Tardy Gate

Tardy Gate started on Tuesday, September 4th. Students who still need help with lockers and getting to classes on time should ask for help. After three tardies, there will be consequences for each additional tardy. Parents/Guardians will get an automated email each time their child is tardy to class and it will include the consequence as well.

Dress Code

Parents, please go over the dress code with your children and please make sure they are in compliance each day. When in doubt, it is probably best not to wear it. Please see the Dress Code here.

Campus Traffic Flow

Parents, please slow down as you drive on and off campus. We have several students who walk to school and several who ride their bikes. Please be a patient and courteous driver and please do not drive in the bus lane. See the traffic flow map here.
