Did your Student Miss Registration?

The high school office will be open from 8:00am – 3:00pm on Friday, August 23 and Monday, August 26 for students who were unable to make their grade level registration day. Please make sure the online returning student is completed prior to coming in with all the forms that need to be turned in. The letter with a snap code was enclosed in the registration packet that was sent home. Students may have to wait to get their computer the first day of school since our technology team with be making sure the building has the school up and running. Thank you for your patience.

The high school office will not be open until next Friday, August 23. Our staff will be busy getting the building ready for the new school year. Teachers will be in meetings most of the week and getting classrooms ready.

We are looking forward to moving back to the high school and seeing students the first day of school.
