Por favor, desplácese hacia abajo para seleccionar español.
We are looking forward to having some of our students back on campus.
1. Complete the CrisisGo Health screening that is sent to your email at 6am EVERY DAY your child is on campus.
2. Remind your child to have their ID card with them.
By having both of these things, students will sent through the fast pass line. Students who are missing either will need to wait in line and could risk being late to class.
Have a great weekend!
