Counselor's Corner

1. Our outstanding counseling team put on their Lunch and Learn last week. It gives students an excellent opportunity to find out about career opportunities from experts in the field. On Monday, we were visited by law enforcement representatives (pictured). On Tuesday, Phil Neeley of Trident talked with our welding students. On Wednesday and Thursday, NCTC visited us with their construction management program and, then, their health science program.


2. Juniors will take the ACT on Thursday.

Beginning Tuesday, August 27, all vehicles in student parking that do not have the required permit will be formally warned with an orange warning sticker.

Beginning Monday, September 16, all vehicles in student parking without the required permit will be towed.

Thank you for helping us keep our campuses safe and secure!

FOOD Deliveries

Students may have food brought to them from parents, guardians and family members. They may NOT order it and have it delivered.

Cell Phones

We appreciate your support as students get accustomed to the new cell phone policy. It takes an adjustment period but we will continue to keep the instructional focus in our classrooms and hallways.


Just as a reminder:

Cell phone use is prohibited in classrooms, hallways and restrooms. They must be stored or put away during the instructional day.


Cell phones are allowed to be used before 8:15 in the cafeteria AND during a student's assigned lunch period in the cafeteria.



● On the first offense and second offense, the telecommunications device shall be confiscated and then returned to the parent with a warning for the student/parent. The parent and student will sign the written warning.

● On the third offense (and incremental offenses thereafter), a $15 fine shall be required before the telecommunications device is returned. ○ A parent may elect to forgo the fine in place of an alternative deterrent.

■ If the fine is not paid, the student will be required to report to the front office to turn in their electronic device(s) each day for a period of five consecutive school days. The device(s) will be available for student retrieval at the conclusion of each school day for this situation only. All other confiscations must be retrieved by a parent and/or guardian.
