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.
