Pirate Nation, we are coming to the end of our school year. Thank you for all your support. We will be mailing progress reports to our families so that you are aware of your student's grades as we close out the year. If you are in need of parent conferences, please connect with our counseling department. Your student's success is a priority. Our staff is second to none and are ready to partner with parents and students to assist students in finishing strong this year. We understand this has been a difficult year, but we need all students logging in and making an effort as we bring the 2020-2021 school year to a close. Summer school information will be going out to families soon. Please be on the lookout for that information. It will be imperative for students who need to recoup courses to participate in this opportunity.
