Need a Chromebook or Wi-Fi Hotspot? Updates

Please click here to register your student for a Chromebook or Hotspot. All students must have a completed user agreement and owe no fines to receive a Chromebook this year. On Friday, September 2 we will distributed over 100 Chromebooks based on the list we had of students with signed user agreements. We will distribute more once we get more. Based on the numbers we having found left on campus, I would strongly suggest purchasing the insurance.

To Be Great, Be Here By 8

Parents, please assist us by bringing your students to school on time. We have dozens of students who are late to 1st period specifically. All students should be in their seats in 1st period by 8:10 am. Please have students at school by 8:00 am so they can arrive on time. All students reporting after 8:30 must be signed in by a parent. We hope this increases our daily attendance and curtails our tardies. Thank you parents for your efforts in getting our students here and on time!
