First Day of School Schedule Procedures (Formerly Blue Schedules)

The process we have utilized in the past of having every student get a “Blue Schedule” in order to be admitted to class has been eliminated. Students should print or screenshot their schedule on Wednesday, July 31st, and follow that schedule. Students and parents are encouraged to utilize the Infinite Campus App to access their schedule as all changes happen in real-time. If students do not have access to Infinite Campus, we will print schedules for students in the library on the first day of school. Updates to Infinite Campus allow us to make this transition as all schedule changes happen in real-time. All freshmen will receive an accurate printed copy of their schedule at Freshman Orientation on Wednesday, July 31st.

Release Time Forms

Students that have a release time on their schedule will need to complete the Release Time Form and return it to the front desk within the first week of school. The Release Time Form is available at the front desk.

**************************************************************************

OPEN HOUSE

Parents and Students are invited to attend Open House on Tuesday, August 6th at 6pm. The evening will begin with a short welcome in the Auditorium.

Sweep

Students who do not arrive to their first hour class on time will be redirected to the sweep room. A parent or guardian must physically enter the building to sign in the late student, otherwise the student will be directed to sweep. Parent phone calls will not excuse the sweep.


While in sweep students will not be able to work on assignments, socialize, or use any electronic devices. Procedures will be in place for students to make up class work and tests they may have missed when they were in Sweep. If a student is swept on a test day, the teacher will allow the student to make up the test. Students who have an assignment due will deliver it to the teacher that same day. All students will be informed of how the Sweep program will be integrated into their school day.


Students who demonstrate repeated tardy behavior will be subject to the progression of interventions and disciplinary action in an effort to encourage and teach proper time management skills. Consequences for sweep will go as follows:


  • 1 st Tardy Offense: Students will be sent to sweep for the remainder of the class period and it will be documented.

  • 2 nd Tardy Offense: Students will be sent to sweep for the remainder of the class period and receive a referral.

  • 3 rd Tardy Offense: Students will be sent to sweep for the remainder of the class period and assigned Saturday School.

Front Office

  • The Front Office ONLY accepts school-related items for drop off. We do not accept - food, drinks, balloons, gifts, or flowers.

  • We do not call students out of class to pick up their items. They need to come to the Front Office BETWEEN CLASSES OR AT LUNCH to pick up items at the Drop Off Table.

  • If a student orders lunch out (Door Dash, etc) - We do not call the student or sign for their lunch. The student needs to be inside the office for their delivery.

  • If a parent needs to pass an item to their student, the parent and student need to arrange to meet INSIDE THE ADMINISTRATION OFFICE LOBBY - NOT AT ONE OF THE GATES.

  • No outside drinks allowed.

Health Office

If you were told you student needs immunizations, please turn them into the Health Office before school starts. All medications must be checked into the Health Office. Students are not allowed to carry medication with them at school unless the use of the following medication is required: epi pens, inhalers and diabetic emergency medications. However, these items must FIRST be checked in and accompanied by the appropriate form at the Health Office.


Medications may only be brought to school by a parent/guardian or another adult over the age of 18. All medication will be in a properly labeled container from either the pharmacy for prescription medication or in the original container for over the counter medication. Make sure to check the expiration date. Narcotic pain medication will not be administered at school.


If a medication needs to be administered daily or is a prescription medication, a “Request for School Administration of Medication” form must be completed by both the parent/guardian and doctor before medication may be administered at school. This includes any over the counter medication that indicates it is not to be given to anyone under the age of 18, usually medication containing aspirin (example: Excedrin). This form is available HERE. Please contact the Health Office for any questions.
