Morning tutorials

This is a reminder that students are welcome to attend tutoring Tuesday - Friday at 7:45 am if they are falling behind or need a little extra help understanding content. Please encourage your student to have an EHallpass created by specific teachers the day before. They will know what that means!!

Student ID's

Since we are coming back from a week long break, please remind your child to have their student ID each and every day. If they happen to forget it, we have an online option to pay for a replacement. This avenue could be very beneficial, in the event you are unable to bring it to them. Info on our online platform is mentioned below. A last option would be adding a fine to the account of your student to purchase a new ID. This fine would have to be cleared prior to finals each semester.

Online Payment Program

We are in the process of testing out our new online payment system. If your student has a fine to pay (badges, library, technology, etc) or you would like to make a donation to accounts such as Pirate Pantry, please check out our new site. This will require you to create an account, but then you can quickly select several categories for payment.
