Student Handbook

Please review the Student Handbook.

Schedules have been released on the Infinite Campus Portal

Counselors have made every effort to keep your schedule as similar as possible to the schedule that you were shown in the spring, however sometimes minor changes were made to balance class sizes and/or ensure that you are taking the appropriate classes for graduation. At this time, all schedule change requests MUST be made prior to the first day of school.

Schedule changes will be granted for the following reasons:

1. You are missing a class required for graduation

2. You are scheduled to take a class that you have already passed

3. You are scheduled for the wrong level for a course (for example, you are scheduled to take Advanced Placement English but have changed your mind and no longer wish to take AP)

If your situation falls into one of these three scenarios, please email your school counselor BEFORE the first day of school to request a schedule change. Counselors will be working over the next two weeks to address all requests to have all schedules firmly set on the first day of school. As a reminder, your counselor can be reached at:

Per the New York State Department of Labor, youth aged 14-17 need working papers to hold a job in NYS.

There are two kinds of permits:

On a student's 16th birthday, they need a new 16-17 work permit.

When applying for work permits, students need to provide the nurse with:
