Message from Mr. McDermott

Good afternoon Wildcats, I hope your school year is off to a great start. We are currently in the process of balancing our courses in order to meet the class size requirements of the state. Some student schedules may be changed in order to accomplish this. We will try to impact student schedules as little as possible, however, we must ensure we meet class size requirements.

Parent Drop Off Procedures

If you plan on driving your student to school in the mornings, please arrive early. School begins at 7:26AM and our car line tends to back up as we near that time. Also, to avoid having the line back up and block wells road, we ask that you drop your students off near the cafeteria end of the building. Furthermore, please plan on turning right out of the drop off loop as this helps expedite the line. Your cooperation in this is appreciated. Students will begin being marked tardy and consequences will assigned beginning next week. If you qualify for bus service, we recommend your student ride the bus to help alleviate traffic. Students arriving to class late will be marked tardy, and consequences may occur.
