Face Masks

  • Face Masks are required indoors regardless of vaccination status
  • Face Masks are optional outdoors
  • Lunch Time - Face masks are to be worn indoors unless students are eating or drinking. Students will need to put the face mask back on when they are finished eating.


All 11th graders are encouraged to sign up for the PSAT/NMSQT later this week. This year, we will have our test day on Saturday, October 16, to allow more people to take the exam. A sign-up will be sent out later this week to all 11th-grade families. Once we have allowed all 11th graders to sign up, we will open the exam to 10th-grade students.

Contact Mrs. Madsen if you have any questions.

Thank you so much for being so patient during pick-up and drop-off times.

  • Below you will find a map of the flow of traffic.
  • The front lot should only be used for non-routine drop-off and pick-up times.
  • Left turns should be avoided if at all possible during these times.
  • Free 6th Period - Please continue to pick up students using the East and West lots during this time. It takes under 2 minutes for the student to walk from the front exit to the side lots. See the second graphic below.
