Reminder that all of the required athletic forms (physical and Rank One) must be completed in order to participate (includes practice) in athletics. The forms can be found by clicking on this link: https://normanpublic.rankonesport.com/New/Home.aspx. If your son/daughter is not currently participating in a Fall sport, but plans on participating in a Winter or Spring sport, it is recommended to go ahead and complete the required forms for participation.

Laptop and Backpack Information

Laptops will be passed out the first day of school through science classes. We recommend students purchasing cases for the laptops to keep them safe. Because students will be carrying their laptops with them all day, backpacks will be allowed in classes. In order to help you with purchasing school supplies this summer, I am providing the information on the devices below.


MacBook Air
