First Day of School Procedures

We will follow our Thursday bell schedule which includes conference period from 8:00-8:55 am. Students will pick up a printed-out schedule in the courtyard that will be a specific color and will be their ticket in the door to their classes (a new schedule must be picked up on this day by all students). Breakfast is served beginning at 7:30 am and first period starts at 9:00 am. School bus transportation always picks up and drops off at the same time even when conference period is scheduled on Tuesdays and Thursdays. There will be adults around campus helping students get to their classes.

Students will attend their classes as scheduled as we will not be doing schedule changes on the first day of school. We also do not change schedules for teacher preference. If a change is needed students need to schedule an appointment with their counselor.

Student pick up and drop off is in the parking lot north of the school. The gate to the parking lot will close at the start of 1st period and reopened at 3:00pm. Please do not use the bus bay for pick up, drop off or parking.
