School Closure Updates
The Schoology system is seeing a 400% increase across the nation in this unprecendented, massive useage. Therefore the company is understandably having occasional disruptions, but they are making adjustments to compensate.
Just continue to communicate with your teachers with questions or concerns over any trouble you are having. You can also e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with any tech issues.
Thank you to the parents, students and teachers for your understanding and patience at this time. Please read the SCHOOL CLOSURE UPDATE with information regarding events, testing, grades and more.

Seniors: Don't Miss Your Opportunities for Scholarships
Parents of Seniors: Please encourage seniors to take a look at the 14 local scholarships available on the scholarship tab of the high school website. These are the scholarships that are awarded each year at senior honors night in May. Even though we are experiencing the school closure, our local scholarship folks still want to be able to distribute scholarships this year to our seniors of 2020, but we need you, the seniors, to apply and submit those applications in order to be considered. SCHOLARSHIP LINK HERE.
We encourage you to get those applications sent in!
