FIRST DAY AND SCHEDULES
Classes are still being leveled and there may still be adjustments. You can see schedules in HAC. Have your student memorize or make a note of their homeroom. On Friday, August 10th, each student will go directly to homeroom where they will receive an official first day schedule. Please remind students it is fine to be nervous and many adults will be in the hallway ready to assist.
NEW MORNING DROP OFF PROCEDURES
Supervision is provided from 7:15am. When students arrive in the front loop via parent drop off they will follow the sidewalk to the doors by the band/gym area where they can enter into the school. They will then go to the cafeteria for breakfast or the gym until general release to homeroom.
ITEMS DROPPED OFF IN THE FRONT OFFICE
In order to minimize classroom disruption, items dropped off for students (lunches, sports equipment etc.) will be reunited with them twice a day at the following two times:
At Lunch: Items will be sent to the cafeteria by front office.
At afternoon release: Students names will be called over the loudspeaker to collect items.
We are ready to make this a great year! Our planners reflect an important part of our school culture this year, our theme is “CHOOSE KIND”, and we thank the PTSO for assisting in the design of the planners. All students will receive a planner on the first day of school. We cannot wait to see you!
