Affordable Connectivity Program

The FCC Affordable Connectivity Program is available to families in the district. This program offers free hotspots and data or internet services from a cable provider.

A few reminders:

  • The tardy bell rings at 8:05am. Please make sure your student is in the building by 8:05am. Students not in class by 8:05am will receive tardy documentation.
  • 11:40am is the halfway point in the school day. If your student checks in after this time or checks out before this time, he/she will be counted absent for the entire day.
  • All students must be in uniform daily. See the image below for uniform expectations.
