A Message from Our Principal

Best High Schools Silver 2013 Award

Dear Parents,

It is hard to believe that we are already in the 4th quarter of the 2013-2014 school year. It has been such a positive year, and I know it will continue to be so until graduation day! Please make sure to remember summer school will be available for the month of June. If your son or daughter is behind on credits, this is the perfect opportunity to catch up. Payment plans are available. Students will not be able to enroll in our "credit recovery" program during the school year unless they attend summer school.

Graduation is also quickly approaching, Seniors, please make sure to order your caps and gowns. The graduation date is May 22 at 7:00 p.m. 

Also remember our 10 is 10 policy. If a student accumulates more than 10 absences, they may be in jeopardy of losing credit. Students who accumulate more than 10 absences will need to do an appeal. Appeals can be scheduled with the front office.

Thank you for your support.
