Schedules for Quarter 3 Learning ~ January 25, 2021 to March 12, 2021

Big picture

Lunch Times

When we return to in-person learning next week, we will be having THREE separate lunch periods as we did previously this year. The change, however, is that instead of freshmen having one lunch, upperclassmen having one lunch, and ILC students having one lunch, we will be scheduling lunches by the SECOND PERIOD CLASS TEACHERS.

Those students who have SECOND PERIOD classes in SOCIAL STUDIES, MATH, ESS, ART, BUSINESS/MARKETING, INDUSTRIAL TECH, and CREDIT RECOVERY will eat lunch during the first or "silver" lunch period. This means that they will have a split second-period class with lunch in the middle of class and returning to that same class.

Those students who have SECOND PERIOD classes in ENGLISH, SCIENCE, MUSIC, PE/HEALTH, or FAMILY CONSUMER SCIENCE will eat lunch during the second or "purple" lunch period. This means that they will have the entire second-period class before leaving for lunch, and they will return to their third-period class.

Juniors Interested in Essay Option on SAT

Please see the attached flyers.

If you have specific questions, please contact Mr. Gurrini at or Mrs. Rosten at

Former coaches who worked with him say that his greatest strength is his passion and enthusiasm! Patrick goes above and beyond to do whatever he can to help his athletes succeed on and off the court. The Mountain Lions have a strong season ahead of them with goals to make it the state tournament. With Patrick leading the way, we are excited to see what the Lady Lions accomplish!

We want to honor any athletes who are committing to play sports at the collegiate level. If you or your son/daughter have signed on to play sports in college, please send an email to Athletic Director, Lauren Anderson ( so she can send you more information.
