Dear Families,

The second semester is underway! Graduation checks will be mailed out in February, and we will begin meeting with students to discuss their graduation status as well as to plan for their classes for Fall. Please reach out to your grade level clerk to update your home mailing address if you have moved and to update phone numbers if they have changed.


Sincerely,
