    Early Dismissal By Parent Request
    Students being picked up early by a parent should bring a note in the morning before school starts to the welcome desk so they can obtain an early dismissal pass.  Administration has asked that the classes not be interrupted.  A note from a parent in the AM would prevent the phone interrupting the entire class.  We appreciate your assistance.  

    When it is time for students to leave (If they are driving), they are to go by the front desk to sign out.  Failure to sign out at the front desk will result in a disciplinary infraction.  Students will not be allowed to sign out after 3:00pm.

    With these alterations to the student calendar, the first semester will now end on January 25, 2019, instead of January 17, 2019, for grading purposes. January 17, 2019, will now be a full day, and January 25, 2019, will be a half day. This change in the semester’s ending date will provide more balance resulting in the first semester having 85 days and the second semester 87 days. At the present time, Spring Break will remain the same from April 15-22, 2019, and the last day of school will remain June 6, 2019.
