PARENT UNIVERSITY/ OPEN HOUSE SEPTEMBER 17- 5pm- 7pm

Parents are invited to get to know our campus and teachers. As well as learn important information about resources available to students in order for them to be successful.

SCHEDULING

Counselors are currently in the process of balancing class sizes, so students' schedules may change without a request. We try our best to change the least amount of classes and teachers as possible to achieve the goal of smaller class sizes for all. Parent/Student Schedule change requests are now concluded. All students need to resolve to do their best in their scheduled courses as progress reports will go out soon. Schedule requests for teacher change are not allowed. Parents need to contact the teacher directly with any concerns.
