Attention students: Beginning March 2 we will begin construction on an athletic addition on the east side of the building.  This will impact parking.  In the interest of safety and traffic during the day, staff will park in the stadium lot and enclave.  Students will have access to the forum/cafeteria lot on the south side of the building, all of the main entrance lot, and the north lot outside the tech lab and woodshop area.  You will notice parking maps posted around the school this week explaining this change.  Again this change will take place on Monday, March 2.

Junior Advisement – Late Start Wednesday, February 25th 7:20-9:00 a.m.  Attention ALL Juniors! Sorry you can’t sleep in on February 24th, even though it’s a late start Wednesday because your MANDATORY “Junior Advisement” session will take place that morning.  All Juniors are required to attend this Junior Advisement session.  Students with last names beginning with A-L need to report to your assigned classroom at 7:20am.  Last names beginning with M-Z report to classrooms at 8:05am.  When you enter the building, check for your name on the class lists which will be posted in the front lobby.  Report to the Business Hallway classroom to which you’re assigned.  Remember, no bus transportation will be provided for this early session.
