Student Scheduling for the 2022-23 School Year

The Guidance Counselors have met with every English class in the building to go over course requests with their students. If you did not meet with your counselor or did not put course requests in through the parent portal, you must contact your Counselor immediately!! Any student who did not put requests in the portal and/or fail to meet with their counselor will have courses entered for them.


Find those books and we'll waive the fines! Does your child need to return a book? If the book is returned to us by May 20th, we will erase any late fees, even if the it is years overdue.

Starting May 23rd, we will return to the five cents a day late fee.
