Be On Time!
We have been notifying your students and asking them to serve off tardies before the end of semester. Please click on the total number of tardies your student has in Power School. If your student has more than 3 tardies (T or TL) in a class, he/she will need to serve detention until the number is back to or below 3 per class. We only have 6 lunch detentions January. If your student has excessive tardies, he/she will need to make arrangements with the grade level Vice Principal.
Guardians and students, being on time is important. There are a handful of students in the hallways after the final bell has rung. The majority of tardies are seen 1st period and 3rd period. Please plan ahead and leave for school earlier and modify lunch plans to not be late. Please monitor your student's PowerSchool weekly to check their grades, attendance and tardies.
We play music with 2 minutes remaining in the passing period, this is the signal to students that class is starting soon. Students, please be on time. Guardians, please speak with your student about the importance of not being late.
Lunch detention for 4 or more tardies. The limit per class is 3.
Lunch detention is served on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.

To get your student out of class, please call 45 minutes prior to the time you will be here to pick them up. If your student has an appointment in the morning, please call the day prior to the appointment. We appreciate your support!

Safety First - Parking Lot
Stop signs mean STOP. Drivers are only allowed to roll through the stop sign when they are actively being signaled to do so by Admin, Security or our SRO, after school.
Parking lot safety needs to be a priority for everyone. Please stay under 15mp while driving on campus. Please be aware of your surroundings and pay attention to pedestrians. Please do not park in the fire lanes, at any time, even after school hours. This includes stopping momentarily and/or dropping students off.
